  • Bake Sale – A Message from Ms. Newman: OnTuesday, May 9th, the 2nd grade class is having a bake sale to raise money to purchase backpacks that will be used to make welcome kits for local refugee children. The 2nd graders have been studying refugees and have created welcome cards, lists of recommended places to visit, purchased books and more for the welcome kits. Please help support our work by sending your child to school with $1-$2 to purchase some yummy baked goods. If you have any questions, please contact Kate Newman. 
  • BOB Finals – The Battle of the Books semifinals were a whirlwind of fun and competition. I was so impressed with the knowledge, teamwork, and sportsmanship that the students demonstrated.  Two teams have emerged victorious and are headed to the finals: Team 1 – I Don’t Remember (That’s not a forgetful teacher moment; it’s actually their name!) and Team 7 – Pi=3.14.  Parents are welcome to join us on Wednesday at 2:15 PM in the library commons to cheer on the competitors.
