May Is Here!

Hi Everyone!

As the year winds down, I like to give more sporadic updates and stick to the nitty gritty because we're all starting to fray a little at the edges and who needs my verbose missives, witty as they are. Please ask your kiddo about what we are up to in Humanities, Literacy, and for the Innovation Faire. Just because I am not detailing it on the blog doesn't mean that there isn't a heck of a lot happening around here!

The 5/6 team is heading to the Fine Arts Festival on Wednesday afternoon. We will eat lunch on the green at Mount Abe (pray for sun!) and then tour the gallery and see a presentation of Bread and Puppet Theatre. We'll be back by 2:30pm. Everyone needs a bag lunch!

If you want to buy a yearbook ad for your student to commemorate sports, scouts, school, or other cool stuff they do, please let me know. We want to make sure we save room for it. You can send me pictures and text and I can do something for you or you can design something in Microsoft Word or Microsoft Publisher (or Photoshop, if you're fancy) and send it to me.

Please also remember to look for the yearbook preorder form in the MCS newsletter. Sixth graders all get a gratis copy, but we want to make sure we order enough for everyone else who wants one.

We are just about set for our Camp Common Ground trip. A Behavior Contract on green paper went home last week. That needs to be signed and returned by Thursday, May 12th. The $25 and permission slip can come back any time in the next week or two. Chaperones were emailed a link to sign-up for kitchen patrol; if you didn't get it, let me know. We will have a more formal memo for chaperones in the next week or so, just so you know what's in store on this trip!
