Last days! It doesn’t seem possible, but we only have 2 and a half days left of school!

Kuzminki Park on Monday! – All first grade will be heading to the bee apiary at Kuzminki park on Monday. As much of our day will be outside, students need to dress for the weather. Bring snack, water bottle, and lunch from home.

Wednesday is not a late start. Wednesday is our last day and we will begin at 8:25. The closing ceremony will be at 11:00 – Parents are invited. No lunch at school – dismissal is at 12:00.

Thank You Chaperones – 1WJ, 1AO, and 1MS had a great day out at the botanical gardens yesterday. Thank you to our trip chaperones.

Field Day! – Thank you to our PE teachers and the middle school students who ran the games for our field day this morning. We had a great time racing, throwing, and playing. Thank you!

Sharing the Planet –  Plants – You will see some evidence of our green thumbs coming home as we begin to take the plants we have nurtured home. Ask your child about what plants need to grow and why we need plants.

Math – We are reviewing many of the skills we worked on this year in math. At home, use tens and ones coins to practice making and understanding the value of 2-digit numbers. Grab a handful of ten and one ruble coins. How much is it? Did I get more or less than my partner? How do you know it is more?

Leaving AAS? – If your family is leaving AAS, please inform the classroom teacher and the office so that we can say goodbye and make preparations. Also let the teacher know if your child needs to clean out his/her locker and take home school work earlier to accommodate your pack-out day.

Traveling before the last school day? If your child will not be at school through June 20, please let the teacher know so that your child can say goodbye to classmates and bring home belongings. This is also helpful to know numbers when planning our last field trip (June 18) and class party. If a child is leaving early they may come to the office at the end of the day on their last day to pick up their yearbook.

Important Dates:

Monday, June 18 – Field trip to the Kuzminki Park Bee Apiary and grade 1 class party

Wednesday, June 20 – Last day – Not a late start – Closing ceremony 11:00 – dismissal 12:00
