Art Corner News….
For part of their Sculpture Unit in Art, 5th Grade chose teams to create sculptures to portray and begin to answer provocative questions, such as “Can We Stop Global Warming?”, “Is Love Magic?”, “Can Pigs Fly?”, and “How Strong is Nature?”
The Teams then created posters to describe their work and their creative process.
Happy Father’s Day
Patient, kind, honest, and strong,
You have been there for me all along
You’re all that a kid could ever want,
Staying through my every stunt.
I can’t believe I get to call you dad,
You’re the best anyone ever had
To call you my own is a true honor
’Cause there could never be a better father.
The Sixth Grade Commencement/Graduation will be held on Thursday, June 14th at 6:00pm in our gymnasium. Students are welcome to invite family and friends to the ceremony and reception.
A Commencement Committee has been formed and we are going with the student-generated “beach” theme. Committee members are busy putting together a slide show, ordering flowers, purchasing decorations and making baked goods for our reception which will be held directly after the ceremony.
We still need several more helpers to volunteer for decorating on the day of the graduation. Please email or drop a note for Mr. Keller (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can lend a helping hand!

May’s Harvest of the Month was Seafood and the students enjoyed sampling Cod and clam strips! What a huge hit…almost every student tried fish! June’s Harvest is Strawberries!
The Kid’s Cafe celebrated “Fiesta Friday” and students enjoyed tacos, guacamole and lots of sides to go with their tacos. They enjoyed listening to Mariachi music and all of the students got beaded necklaces! Thank you to the PTA for the decorations and beads.

Muffins with Mom was a huge success! Kindergarten students, along with their mothers, grandmothers, and/or aunts, enjoyed muffins and juice on the afternoon of May 10th. Each student presented their guest with a card and a rose. Students also read to their “special person” from their Independent Readers that they work on in class.
Kindergarten students will also be hosting Donuts with Dad on Friday June 8th @2:00p. We hope that fathers, grandfathers, and/or uncles will be able to join their student.
