Mrs. Ginn's First Grade
Congratulations to Teya, our Life Skill Leader this month.
I sent home permission slips home today for our swim party on June 4th. We will be walking across the street to CYO.
The $5 donation will go towards the cost of four lifeguards. We will be leaving school at 10am and returning at 2pm. Please let me know if you would like to join us. It would be great to have one parent drive over with our backpacks. Students can come to school in their suits with clothes over. There is also changing rooms at CYO. You can sign up for a school bag lunch or send a home lunch. Please get permission slips in next week so I can order school lunches ahead for those who need it. Thanks!
This week we have spent most of our time finishing up our forest habitat, our animal reports, and end of the year assessments.
You are invited to explore "our forest" in our classroom on Open House May 24th. Ice cream social is 5:30pm.
Classrooms are open at 6:30-7:30pm.
