Weekly Update 4/29-5/3


Hello everyone!

We have a busy week going on!  Field trips, carnivallots of fun! Here are this week’s announcements

*Our field trip to Idaho Botanical Gardens is tomorrow (Monday).  Please remember to pack a lunch for your child.  We will be eating lunch while on the field trip. We will leave school at 10:00, and return by 2:00. It will be sunny but chilly tomorrow, so please make sure your child brings a jacket to take on the field trip.

*Carnival is this Friday, May 3!  Thank you for all of the donations you gave for the first grade raffle baskets.  I heard a ton of stuff came in on Thursday and Friday!  The carnival is Friday, from 5-8. Can you volunteer?  I signed up to work the Bounce House from 5-5:30. I’d love to have some company during that timethere are three more volunteer slots available from 5-5:30. 



*This is kind of a strange request, but I need every child to bring in a hand held mirror by Friday, May 3.  We need them for an art project we are doing!  Mirrors WILL be returned to you by the next Friday,  May 10. Thank you!
