A Very Busy End of the Year!

Hello, Families!

I hope you are all enjoying the beginning of your spring vacation. I wanted to make you aware of the many events we have going on when we return from vacation so you can mark them in your calendars. More information for each event has already been sent home or will be sent home, but if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send me an e-mail!

Week of May 8th- We will be planning out our life-size paintings and costumes for the Wax Museum. A paper will be coming home in everyone's homework packet where you can draw your costume onto a person to give us an idea of what you'd like to wear. We will then trace our bodies and draw on our costumes before painting them the following week.We will also be collecting money to order our How to be A Pirate bandannas so they can be delivered in time for our play at the beginning of June. Bike to School will also be taking place on June 8th!

May 13th, 9:00-10:30 am: We will be painting our life-size character portraits for the wax museum along with Mrs. Caporello's class. I will need 5 volunteers to help us during this process, so if you are available, please send me an e-mail! We would love to have you! We also have an Early Release Day this day, so we will be dismissed at 12:50.

May 14th, after school: We will be holding our first-ever SMS Makerfest! Many students in our class will be making a project to bring in, and it is sure to be fun for the whole family.
