FIELD DAY

Tomorrow is field day!  It’s going to be a fun one… and hot! Please make sure your child has the following items:

  • Tennis shoes
  • Water bottle (very important)
  • A lunch (unless you sent in the form indicating your child is buying lunch)
  • A towel to sit on for the picnic

Thank you to the volunteers that have helped make tomorrow happen for our students!

FUN RUN!

Parents,

Our Colonial Trail Cubs Fun Run program kicked off today with an exciting Pep Rally, and we are thrilled about this year’s program! We’ve asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run program (which will last about two weeks), making our fundraising simpler, more profitable, and more fun. Our Fun Run includes EVERY student in a fun fitness event while helping our school raise much-needed funds.

This year, our entire school is raising funds for the Literacy Program and the Quaver Music Program. Our goal is to raise $20,000, and we need YOUR help!

Here’s how you can support Colonial Trail:

  • Register your student on funrun.com using this code: 617-293 Once you do, your student will receive a FREE GIFT just for being registered. Then, use funrun.com to log pledges for your child.
  • Reach out to sponsors. Every student’s goal is to connect with 10 sponsors. And with funrun.com’s smart sharing features, reaching out to sponsors is easier than ever. The easiest way to get pledges is to simply click the Facebook share button on your student’s pledge page. Plus, with a few clicks you can create a custom Student Star video to share on social media. You can also use the Easy Emailer to connect with friends and family. As you gather pledges, be sure to record each sponsor’s e-mail address so they have the opportunity to easily pay for your student’s pledge online via credit card.
  • Our Fun Run program will be collecting flat donations only! Although most students will be running 30-35 laps at the Fun Run, we will not be collecting any pledges per lap.
  • Ask your child about the Castle Quest Character Lesson of the day! This year’s character program is Castle Quest, a castle theme all about bravery. On their quest to regain Bravemore Castle, students will learn the “SIX VIRTUES of a TRUE HERO” from a cast of colorful characters. Join along by watching the fun character videos with your child on funrun.com.
  • Come to the Fun Run on Friday, June 8th at 6:00 p.m.! All students are invited to celebrate at the Fun Run, regardless of financial participation. We would love for you to come out and cheer!

Thank you for supporting our school. We hope to see you next week at the Fun Run!

Sincerely,

Colonial Trail Administration and PTA

RECORDER CONCERT

As you know, our recorder/chorus concert is this Friday at 1:45 in the gym. The kids are working hard and are excited to show off what they have learned. Please be sure to have your child wear his/her class t-shirt and a pair of jeans. If your child doesn’t have a class shirt, please have him/her wear a green shirt instead since that is our class color. Thank you!

BOOK CELEBRATION DATE CHANGE

Can you believe we are nearing the end of the school year already? I wanted to give you all an update on our annual 4th Grade Book Celebration—due to a scheduling conflict the last week of school we are moving the big day up two school days, from Tuesday, June 12 to Thursday, June 7.  I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. The date chance will not affect the book response deadline.

Thank you,

Ms. Brown, Librarian
