I’ve reviewed all speeches and outlines for the Wax Museum. Speeches should be about one minute long. All students should begin their speech with a quote, fun fact, or question about their Wax Museum figure. They should be practicing every night at home as we will do here at school, too.They should memorize a good part of their speech but it is acceptable to tape/glue speech to a prop. We are looking forward to a great day!

The last day of school, Friday, June 16th, is a student 1/2 day of school. We will begin dismissal three hours early at 11:00 AM. As a result, students will not go to the cafeteria for their assigned lunch time. If you are interested in ordering your child a bagged lunch to be eaten at school before dismissal, then please sign up using this link:http://tinyurl.com/halfdaylunch. Only pre-ordered lunches will be served on the 1/2 day.
Additionally, on Thursday, June 15th, the cafeteria will only serve bagged lunches. In support of the fifth graders, the cafeteria will be used for a special 5th grade luncheon and all other Kg-4 classes will eat in their classrooms or picnic style on the school grounds.
