May 21st Week

Can you believe it .... we have 13 days of school left! This class has been amazing and I will be very sad to see them go!


Reminder:
- June 1st- Brassfield’s Spring Carnival will be held after school on Friday, June 1st from 5-8 PM. Enjoy inflatables, games, food, prizes, face painting, a dunk tank and more. Admission is free. Most games will cost 1-2 tickets ($10 for 25 tickets), with a few free games. Pizza and drinks will be available for purchase. Popcorn and Cotton Candy will be free, thanks to a generous donation from Bay Leaf Baptist Church 












- Kindergarten EOY Party - June 6th 12:30 - I will be giving out individual certificates and we will have light refreshments. If you are interested in helping out with refreshments let me know.


Our fish CC (Cotton Candy) will need a loving home over the June Track Out. If you are interested let me know. He is very low maintenance and his tank is very small.


We are finishing up our Ocean City. I have started sending some items back that were a finished with. There were a lot of items in the construction, and medical stations without names. We tried our best to keep everything together but just let me know if you're missing anything.

Thank you to all of the volunteers that have sent in anything for the classroom, helped in the classroom and/or went on the field trip! At this time, I will not be having anymore volunteers or secret readers. We have a lot of assessments and end of year activities to complete and our schedules will be different for these last few days.

Thanks again for the generous gifts, flowers and cards from Teacher Appreciation Week! I still cannot believe how lucky I got to have families like you!
