End of Year Things…

Grades and Awards Ceremony

For those of you wondering, grades for the 4th quarter will be factored in this week.  I am aiming to get it all done by Wednesday evening.  This will give me a chance to make sure that I can notify parents of the awards ceremony coming up next week – Thursday, May 17th.

Field Day

3-5 Grade Field Day is on Friday, May 11th!  If you are able to sign up to help, sign up on this link: http://signup.com/go/WGbgWAe

Tips:

  • Please make sure that your child is wearing sunscreen since we’ll be outside most of the day.
  • Have your child bring a change of clothes and shoes to dress in after getting wet.  Yes, there’s water involved!
  • Water bottles are highly encouraged!
  • Students may wear athletic bottoms with their field day shirts.  No standard attire is necessary on Field Day.  Please make sure that short are school-appropriate in length.
  • If your child did not purchase a Field Day shirt, please have him/her wear a red shirt.  Our team’s color is red.

 

Intent Forms with Proof of Residency

***If you have not sent in your intent form AND the 2 pieces of proof of address, your child will not be placed in a class for 5th grade.  Please make this a priority if you have not already done this.***

Thank you!

Lastly, if you haven’t received the “thank you” note that I sent in Friday folders, please accept this thank you for all the teacher appreciation gifts/hugs/cards given to me.  I thank you all so much!!!

Reading Bowl for Next Year

The Teasley Reading Bowl Team is looking for new members! If your child LOVES to read, LOVES trivia, and is on or above grade level in reading, consider participating in Reading Bowl.  This is a competitive team that reads specific books and answers trivia-style questions about the books. It requires a great amount of reading as well as question writing in preparation for competition.  Our class will be visiting the Media Center tomorrow (Friday), to more about entering into this awesome competition.  If you are interested in learning more, please visit the library blog or email Ms. Crosby at amy.crosby@cobbk12.org.
