Thank you to those of you who signed up for some snack items for testing week. There are still some spots open if you are willing. CLICK HERE to sign up. Please sign up by FRIDAY so I know what I need to provide myself. Also- If you can have the items here by Friday that would be awesome! That way I can organize everything before testing. (If you are unable to bring the items by Friday- please email me and let me know) 

Field Day

We have an exciting new event this year called Field Day!! 5th grade will be competing against 4th grade on June 8th. We will be playing different games and work together to beat 4th grade! 

I will be talking to 5th grade tomorrow and start pumping them up for this event! I am suuuper excited. More information to come about dressing up in an organized color, going all out in our team spirit, team cheers, etc. Get ready- because Ms. Rothman and I are going all out! We are hoping our students do as well!
