Some Important Things...

I hope everyone had a fantastic and eventful long weekend!

With June fast approaching, there is a lot of important information to be shared:

  1. PERMISSION FORMS! - We have a lot of fun field trips planned for June. All permission forms have been sent home. Please get these back ASAP. If there are any issues, please let me know.
    • Money is not needed for the Pine Ridge trip as we are fundraising for it.
  2. FUNDRAISER - The students are currently in the process of planning a fundraiser to pay for our trip to Pine Ridge Golf Course in June. This is working hand-in-hand with our financial literacy unit. We will need parent volunteers for this event, so I will send out an email as soon as we complete this unit.
  3. Rock Painting - As a part of "beautifying" Dallas Elementary, we ask that every student brings in a rock to paint for an art piece we are building as a school. Painting will take place FRIDAY, May 25th.
  4. No Vocabulary this week.

Looking forward to everything that June will bring!

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me.
