Get into groups check bathroom, prepare for tour and activity

When getting ready to leave please make sure all children wash their hands we won’t have another opportunity to wash hands before eating.  But I will be bringing Germ X along so we can use that prior to eating.

11:15 Arrive at Pizza Ranch. This is our first year using this restaurant so we will need to go in and wait for directions from the Manager.  The teachers will pay for all students and parents will need to pay as you arrive to go through the buffett. Please encourage the kids to eat some pizza first before eating dessert.

Depending on the weather we will leave the park around 1:30

On Friday we will have 8am Mass and End of the year Awards.  All classes will get a special time to talk and share memories from the year.  So Kindergarten will get to go up for special recognition. Then there will be a break for students to get ready for field day.  Please be sure to read about swimming suit rules from Mrs. Stiens reminders. We will have a school wide picnic that you were invited to on the yellow paper that was sent home earlier. At noon we will begin field day festivities!! Pray for warm weather as the water games will be REALLY COLD!!

All this week we will be cleaning, packing up, and sending home everything.  Please be sure to empty your child’s backpack each night. We will only save our tool box and sunscreen until Monday, May 20th our official last day.

Below are some special pictures from the week.  Monday we celebrated Mrs. Klass for Nurse’s Appreciation day! We are SO THANKFUL for EVERYTHING she does to keep us safe and healthy!! Mr. Cobb also stopped in with his new granddaughter Sophie!! Who is also Mrs. Oliver’s first child!! She is SO precious!! We were all in awe of how tiny she is!  We also enjoyed a special snack from Callao who brought hard boiled eggs!! It was a new experience for some to peel an egg! And of course on Friday we sadly said goodbye to our 8th graders who graduated Friday night.
