Please take a moment and peek in your child's backpack. Right at the end of the day, one of our friends showed me a special treasure from his parents' trip to Mexico. It was a cactus on a keychain. Like a squishy toy. I saw it on his backpack. Then we went outside for recess. I was out with the students. Several children did come in to use the bathroom, which is completely normal. However, today, upon our return, I was so sad to see that someone took it off his bag. If you do see it, please return it. Thank you.
Today we said good-bye to Miss. Kayla. She will be graduating from Ike and off to college. She has been a wonderful helper in our class. In honor of her farewell, we played some cooperating games this afternoon. I think everyone enjoyed it.
We also enjoyed our day with having everyone in class! Since we did, I took advantage of taking some group pictures. Remember, you are welcome to pull pictures off our class website for your personal use.
Tomorrow is field day. Students need to come prepared to be outside for two hours in the morning. Our class will start the fun at 9:00 and return to the room at 11:00. I do not know if there is a snack break or not. So please be sure your child has a good breakfast. Also, send them with a water bottle that is labeled with their name and perhaps our room number. If disrespectful, unsportsmanlike conduct occurs, that child will be sitting out. This is meant to be a day of physical fitness and fun, not tears.
If you are volunteering, please arrive at the school and check in at the office before 8:45. They want to set up with parent help and be started right at 9:00. Thank you for all you do!
Enjoy the warm, breezy evening!
