Permission Slips- I am still missing permission slips and payments from several students for our field trip on Monday 2/29. Please get those in to me by tomorrow so that I can put together chaperone groups. If your child needs another copy, please let me know.
Mission San Diego- I am very excited about our field trip to the mission this Monday! It is a great chance for the students to experience their learning first hand. They are doing a great job on their research reports- I am proud of their hard work! Students should wear their dress uniforms that day and bring their PE clothes to change into. Please make sure both their dress uniforms and PE uniforms are labeled with their names on it.
Starting this week Thursday Homework Club will end at 3:40 from now on. I apologize for the inconvenience but I had to adjust the time to work with my graduate school schedule. Please pick your child up in the 4th grade classroom by 3:40 or they will be walked to daycare. Wednesday homework club will continue to go until 4:00 in the 5th grade classroom. Thank you for your understanding.
It has been a nasty cold and flu season! We are on our last few boxes of tissues. 4th grade would really appreciate if families could donate a box of tissues so that we can last the rest of the school year. Thank you so much!
