It is hard to believe that Spring
Break is here and gone. Mr. Grotte took advantage of the weather over the
break and put in some time on the water fishing for Spring Chinook. Mr. Sloniker went snow skiing and to the beach. Before we
know it, the end of the year will be upon us. Here are a few notes that may
be important to you.
First, the MSP will begin next week.
The students will participate in the writing portion on Tuesday, April 29.
Here are a couple of things you can do to help prepare your children and
lower their anxiety: make sure they get a good night sleep, breakfast is very
important, bring a water bottle to class, and visit the OSPI website and look
over some writing examples.
Second, Mr. Grotte’s
student teacher, Mrs. A., will be finishing up her student teaching
experience this week. Which means, next week is her final week with us. She
has done a great job working with your children. Both classes will be
planning a celebration for her next week. Mr. Grotte will send an email
giving information about the celebration on Monday.
Finally, with the end of the year
quickly approaching, there a few things to start thinking about. Our end of
the year auction will take place in June. Information about the auction will
be sent home in the next couple of weeks. But, items for the auction can
start coming in now. Whatever you can do to help is appreciated. Lastly, we
will be going on a second field trip in June. A permission slip will also be
sent home for this in the next couple of weeks.
