We are working so hard to present a great musical for you next Friday. The play will begin at 6. We would like the children here by 5:40. The boys will come to my room; and the girls will go to Mrs. Elkins' room. After you drop your child off, you may go into the little gym. All are invited to attend. After the musical, please come by our classroom to get your child who will still be dressed in costume. Please take the bag of clothes from inside your child's locker with you when you leave.
As I mentioned, the boys will be in my room and the girls will be in Mrs. Elkins' room. The black privacy screen will be over the door window and the blinds will be pulled. I recommend that your child wear something light-weight that can be used under the costume-for example, spandex or leggins. We need to be able to dress quickly, so it would be helpful if your child doesn't have to take too much off to get the costume on.
I would like for you to send your child's blue jeans by Tuesday. Please put them in a labeled bag. I will put your child's shirt in the bag. The bag will remain in your child's locker until Friday evening. When we change, the clothes your child wears to the evening performance will be put in the bag to take home after the musical.
We will play kickball against Mrs. Pyle's class on Monday to see if we can advance in the tournament.
I am on the last day (field day) committee and have asked for donations of freezer pops. If you can donate a bag, please send it in with your child by May 21st. Thank you!
We will not have memory or spelling this week.
Also, we will not have reading homework on Fridays for the remainder of the school year.
Our Star of the Week this week is Lukas!
Fund raising opportunities: Scrip, BoxTops (you can enter your receipt online and earn money for the school), LauraJo's Cookies, and Amazon Smile. Thanks for all the support!
We will collect offerings on Monday. Our offerings in May will go to support Lutheran World Relief. We are raising money to buy pigs for people in underdeveloped countries. The classes have been challenged!! See the Weekly Warrior for more info! Thanks for your help!
I collect poptabs, which are taken to Riley Children's Hospital, as a donation to their services.
You and your family are in my prayers!
In His service,
We will learn about Jesus's ascension and the spreading of the Gospel message.
We have learned about homes around the world, how homes are built, animal homes and even a folktale about animal homes. We will read more about animal homes.
In addition to the things we have learned and are working on, we will continue to learn about commas in a series, dialogue, sentence structure, contractions, and quotation marks. We are practicing consonant clusters and vowel digraphs. We will learn about possessive nouns and pronouns. We worked hard on contractions, too.
We learned about vivid verbs, proper nouns, and multiple meaning words.
Please listen to your child read EACH evening!
