May 2019 Connection

Happy Spring!…Here is to hoping that all those April Showers brings some May flowers and some sunshine.



Jog-A-Thon Weather Update

Jog-A-Thon will be cancelled on Friday due to the impending rain.

Make-Up day will be Wednesday, May 1st for all classes that were supposed to run on Friday, except for two 6th grade classes due to a conflict with a chorus rehearsal.       Mrs. Thomas’ 6th grade class will run Monday at 8:45 and Mr. Jones’ 6th grade class will run Tuesday at 8:45.  There will be no classes running on Wednesday at the 8:45 time slot.

Please remember that if you are volunteering, please bring a gallon of water to the water table.

All kids are urged to bring a water bottle, but in case you forget, we will have some water at the table.

Weather looks a bit iffy next week, so lets all keep our fingers crossed for a better forecast.


Jog-A-Thon Packet and Info.

“Jog-A-Thon” Packets were sent home yesterday. Your child’s run dates and classroom shirt color are listed in the packet and if you have a preschooler, your child’s teacher will let you know when they will be doing their “Hop-A-Thon” in class. This year we have an online donation link. Please feel free to share the link with friends and family who might want to donate to your child’s fundraising. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and funds almost all of the programs and field trips that your child participates in as well as supplies for your child’s teachers every year. Thank you for all your support. Here’s to making this year’s Jog-A-Thon fantastic!!
