Our students have been observing the moon change phases this month of Ramadan, and surely they are seeing the waning crescent by now! But before Eid Al Fitr arrives, we have some exciting events this week!
Today, the students spent the day as sixth graders at our middle school! Their sixth grade buddies led them from class to class to learn about the teachers and topics for next year.
Some homework was sent home today though–practice the song that Ms. Austin had us hand out to you today.
Tomorrow, Monday (B day), is a relatively normal Ramadan schedule day, but if you have ANY LIBRARY BOOKS, please bring them to school to return. They are now all considered overdue.
Tuesday, June 12 (A day), will be an exciting morning. In the time before lunch, grade five will rotate among P.E., Art, and Music classes for about 25 minutes each. During that time, the grade five teachers will give presentations to the grade four students to introduce them to grade five. After lunch, it’s a normal day until 1:00 dismissal.
Wednesday, June 13 (B day), is our Grade Five Finale! Some kids are calling it the “graduation,” but no caps and gowns are necessary! Leave your uniform at home and dress in a neat, smart way for our Certificate Ceremony. Parents received an email from Mr. Dorn with details, but HERE IS A COPY. As a Bonus, you may sign your child out after the ceremony if you like!
Thursday, June 14 (A Day). Our school calendar lists this as a holiday, but we’ll know more once Eid Al Fitr is formally announced.
Sunday, June 17: Again, the school calendar does NOT currently list this as a holiday, but watch this space and your email for an announcement about whether school is in session this day because of the Eid Al Fitr announcement.
Monday, June 18: Back to our normal schedule? Let’s see what KHDA says about our holiday schedule.
Tuesday, June 19: REGULAR LONG DAY! NO MORE early-release Tuesdays. We are planning our FIELD TRIP this day. Students should be back in school in time for lunch.
Down the road a bit, we are planning a bowling trip to celebrate the end of the year. Details to follow.
