So here are some details: Students that are brothers can wear bathrobes or long t-shirts tied at the waist. Students that are camels can wear brown or tan shirts and jeans or brown pants. The narrators can wear everyday clothes. Anything more specific will be sent home by email.

Box Tops: This week is the last week for box tops! Please send them in by Wednesday so there is time to get them cut before Friday.

End of the Year Picnic: The all school end of the year picnic is Friday, May 13th at Acres of Fun! Contact the office with any questions.

Field Trip: Our field trip is May 23rd! Once we get closer I will send home a few reminders for the day.

Elementary Award Chapel: This will be on Tuesday May 24th. More details to come.

Last Day of School: Wow! The last day is Wednesday May 25th! We will be having field day in the morning and school ends at 12:30 that day. There is no Kids Time.


I think that is it for this week!
