Dear Parents,

Today, every boy in 1st – 5th grade received a red folder containing his required summer reading and math assignments.

The folders contain all the information your son will need in order to complete his required summer work. Just as last year, all required math assignments are contained within the red folder. If you would like for your son to have additional math practice, he may login to Dreambox (rising 2nd–4th) or IXL (rising 2nd–6th) using his username and password found on the front pocket of the folder.

The school will be open at scheduled times this summer for students to take AR tests. The schedule can be found on the same inside pocket of the red folder.

On the first day of school in August, your son will need to return his completed assignments in the red folder.

Enjoy summer!

Laura Glenn
Head of Elementary

*All Library Books are Due ASAP- I will be sending home notices today if your son still has a book out. 

*Recycled Materials- Our Mud Island Field Trip is next Thursday, May 16th.  Boys will not only get to tour the museum, but they will get to sail a boat on the Mississippi River replica.  This week, we are discussing how boats float.  We would like the boys to bring in CLEAN recycled items, so they can construct a boat at school with their partner.  When picking recycled items, keep in mind that the water is not very deep so the boats need to be light, and they need to have enough air space (not too tall).

5.16.19 Field Trip to Mud Island- Boys needs to wear a red shirt, bring a sack lunch with drink, and bring a booster seat.  We still need a few drivers from 1B...please let me know if you are available.
