    Welcome! 

    Events - Last Week of School:

    We have a lot of great events going on next week! Please be sure that your child is prepared by reading through the End-of-the-Year Family Letter one more time. It is linked here.

    Report Cards:

    Report Cards will be sent home electronically next week. Please use the assessments and Reflecting on Spring packets in your child's binders to have a conference with your child.

    Binders and Friday Folders:

    Binders and Friday Folders are coming home and should stay home, along with other materials that will be coming home over the next week.

    Messages from Mrs. Burrill:

    We have printed Clever Badges and Google usernames and passwords and they are in your child's Friday Folder. Here is a resource if you need to know how to access Clever apps this summer: How to Access Clever Resources

    Summer Reading Library Resources: Elementary: Here is a resource created by the Library department.

    The 2024 AADL Summer Game AAPS Virtual Scavenger Hunt was shared with most students during Library class.  Here is a handout that was passed out to students. 

    General Summer Resources: Lots of general, fun summer reading and writing activities. These are sorted and categorized by grade level.

    King Learning SPRING Garden Watering

    We have started planting with students in the King Learning Garden and need volunteers to water after school. This usually takes about 30 minutes. Please consider signing up for a day between now and the last day of school. We will share directions with you if you sign up. Kids are encouraged and welcomed to join you in the garden!

    King Learning Garden SUMMER volunteers

    Every summer we ask families to help us tend the garden over the summer. This involves weeding and watering…and harvesting and eating! Please sign up for a week. We are asking for two families per week to share the work. If you have volunteered before you can also sign up as a garden coordinator for a week which means you are on call for questions and problem solving.

    Welcome! 

    No School:

    There is no school on Monday (5-27).

    No Binders:

    I was not here on Friday (5-24), so I did not fill out Goal Sheets and therefore did not send home binders. Students should have their Friday Folders.

    Welcome! 

    NWEA

    NWEA testing will continue next week. Exact dates/times/tests are on the calendar page. Please take the time to jot them down and avoid scheduling activities on those dates. There will be make-up times for kids who are absent on testing days, but the best time for testing is on the scheduled days. Here are a few reminders:

    1) Please be sure that your child does not have any electronic devices at school that cannot be left in their lockers as they cannot be in the classroom during testing. This includes smart watches, bluetooth headphones/mouse, etc.

    2) Please be sure that your child has a charged Chromebook.

    3) Please be sure that your child has a healthy breakfast, water bottle, and healthy snack.

    Needed Items:

    We are in need of playground balls (basketball, soccer ball, and kickball) and an electronic pencil sharpener. Unfortunately, the class lost the balls I purchased for them and put pencil stubs in both of the pencil sharpeners I purchased. If you have anything at home that you could donate, we would appreciate it!

This year we will open the Lottery for submissions today, April 1, 2024 and we will close the Lottery Submission window at 11:59pm April 30, 2024. We will draw by family (meaning all children in a family get in or all children in a family are on the waitlist). The Lottery drawing will occur May 1, 2024. We will contact families May 1-3 to inform of the results. 

    Please note that this year we got all families form the initial waitlist in for spots within the first month of school. Many families initially waitlisted were in before school even started.

    5th Grade End-of-the-Year Packet:

    It is hard to believe, but we are starting to think and plan for the end-of-the year! A 5th Grade End-of-the-year Packet is in your child's Friday Folder today (4-19). It contains all of the 5th grade events for the rest of the school year, and there is a lot going on! We wanted to make sure that you had one place to look for dates, times, and needed items. Please take the time this weekend to look over the packet, put the dates/times on your calendar, fill out and sign the permission slips and put them in your child's backpack, and then put the packet in a safe place for your future reference. We need your help to make the end-of-the-year events successful and to give your children a memorable end to 5th grade and their time at King.
