Weekly Newsletter for 5/9/14

Dear Room 4 Families,

I am very grateful to all the wonderful families that have been contributing to the class this year! I extend my sincerest gratitude for the support that has been given to the class this year to ensure the opportunities to enrich your child’s curriculum. Thank you to all of the generous families that have been donating for teacher’s appreciation week. The supplies will be put to good use and the Target gift card will be spent on school supplies to further improve your child’s school experience. A special thank you to the Crowe family for getting the Fellowes book binders donated to our classroom/school! Room 4 families are awesome!

The Mandarin Program Spring Showcase is just around the corner! On Friday, May 16th, Room 4 students will meet at 5:30 in Room 4. We will line up and head to the cafeteria at 5:45.  There will be a snack fundraiser from 5-7:30 pm, and the showcase will promptly begin at 6pm in the multi-purpose room.
