The year is flying by! Field day will be here before you know it! Please note that next Friday is a half day for students. If you have a change in transportation for that day or would like to request a meal to be sent home with your child (their account WILL be charged), please make sure to get that orange slip of paper back to me by Tuesday.
Field day is planned for Friday, April 28. The last day to order field day t-shirts is 4/5. Go to zimmzang.com to find our school and order one for you child.
The MATH MAPS test will be given on Thursday, April 6.
Yesterday, a student from Moody Middle School came into our math class to talk about the Model UN. If your child would like to participate, please make sure that they have indicated their top 3 choices and have their paper turned into me no later than next Thursday. Spots will be given on a first come, first served basis.
If you would like to donate your family's Earthquake Surprise book back to SPES, we are going to use them to create a leveled class set for our book room. Just send them back to me and I will put them in the hands of the book room committee.
