April 30th Update

Last week was a very busy week but it was all made possible with the help of our parents.  Thank you to all the parents that volunteered to help with our Nauticus field trip and with field day.  We truly appreciate all you do to support our school.

1. Photos for Graduation: 5th grade graduation is just around the corner and photos are being collected to make a video for the event. Mrs. Morley plans to use 3 photos of each student; one as a baby or toddler, one current and one in between.  If you have any favorite group photos, she would love those as well.

Please email your pics to kjsmorley@gmail.com by May 1st. File names should reflect your student’s name.  So for example, Jack’s file names could be JackMorley1, etc.  This will help her stay organized.

2. Field Day Pics:  Kaechele students had a successful Field Day on Friday, April 26th. Thanks to Mr. Runk for organizing this day for all our coyotes and in spite of the weather making it a fun and safe day for everyone!!  I hope you enjoy some photos taken by our KES staff: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/16u75q-NkCwLL-gaNh4XTkS8eTISVX6PM
