We are in for a whirlwind week this week with MAPs testing, a field trip and field day! Whew, I have no doubt it will fly by, but there will be plenty of learning and fun in the meantime. Thank you so much to our chaperones for our upcoming trip to Virginia’s State Capitol building, Mr. Shah, Dr. Perkins, I look forward to spending this special day with each of you and my Super Sleuths!
IMPORTANT! Please be aware that on Field Day lunch procedures are a little different. I will submit a lunch count in the morning for each child that wishes to purchase a bagged lunch on that day. The choices are :
Turkey and Cheese cold sandwich
Healthy Day Meal
Each entree will be served with carroteenies, apple, chips, and choice of milk
An adult volunteer will go to the cafeteria to pick up the lunches purchased from our class, and bring them back to the classroom. The children will NOT have the opportunity to buy any snacks or extras on this day. It may be a great idea to send anything you wish for your child to have from home, and to make sure that you discuss with them whether or not they will purchase a bagged lunch from the cafeteria ahead of time. Thanks!
