First graders have had a busy week taking mastery tests, practicing a dance for our eighth grade buddies, and participating in an amazing Field Trip to the Zoo. It hard to believe there is only one week of school left!

Thank you to all the incredible chaperones that made this trip possible: Kara Daquisto, Tara Stone, Susan Turner, Tricia Kane, Amy Kim, Kari Aguila, Kerry Feeman, Maryann Osaki, Katrina Kithene, Denise Lee, Edelevis and Andrew Clapp, you all did an great job making the field trip fun and safe!

 Today your children brought home Summer Packets, Math Games/Brain Teasers and Summer Solutions workbooks if you ordered one. Monday I will send home the contracts. Remember if you did not meet with me, please let me know and I will email you a contract.
