Last Week of School

Our school year is almost over and we have worked very hard throughout the year.  For the last week of school we are going to enjoy some fun time together with some special themed days.  I have listed a schedule for the events each day and I invite your students to bring in any items mentioned below to help make each day fun and special.   Some days we will be making recipes to practice basic life skills as well.  Please let me know if there is anything you do not want your student to have.  Also please send your student with his backpack every day as we will have items and supplies going home everyday.    FINALLY THERE IS A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM THE 5TH GRADE AT THE END OF THIS EMAIL.

MONDAY: Let’s Go Camping!!!  Please bring in a towel and flashlight or lantern.   We will be reading in the dark and making smores as a yummy campside treat.   5th grade Wax Museum
