Last Sunday Night Memo, 5/19/18

May 19, 2018

We made it...well, almost!  3.5 more days with kids and we can officially put 2017-2018 in the books and start summer. 

It's going to be a busy, busy week as we wrap up with kids, finish packing and make sure all the signatures needed are gathered to officially check out on Friday. 

Thank you for an awesome first year.  It's been a wonderful rollercoaster ride with lots of lessons learned.  I'm looking forward to the slower pace of summer to begin planning for next year.  I hope you find time to enjoy summer with friends and family and also some time to yourself.  Safe travels for those hitting the road or skies to explore during the time off.

Last Week
Please refer back to the list of events in your end of year closing packet.  We have the Regatta for the 7th graders, locker clean outs, Six Flags and the last day of school activities.

Please make sure to read the email Aimee sent out for Six Flags, even if you are staying back. 

Last Day of School
Our awesome last day of school committee members have planned a great day for kids to enjoy.  We will also be providing a light snack/lunch consisting of a hotdog, chips and water.  There will also be a snow cone truck.  Please let your kids know they will need money to purchase a snow cone.

We will have hot dogs, brats and chips for teachers as well to enjoy after the kids are gone.  This is not our official farewell meal. 

Last day for Teachers
Friday is the official last day for teachers.  We will have our farewell breakfast starting at 8:30 am.  Please join us in the cafeteria for breakfast catered by Chris' Cakes.  We will have pancakes, eggs, cheesy potatoes and sausages.  We will break bread together before we all head out for the summer.

When you are ready to check out, please bring your packet with all the signatures to either Aimee or me.  We will collect them and officially check you out.

Summer Communication
I'll be around for pretty much the whole summer.  If you need anything, send me a text (314-422-0810) or email me. 

When the new laptops are in, you will receive an email with information on when you can come and pick them up during the summer.

Be on the lookout for the back to school letter towards the end of July.  It will be coming to you the old fashioned way via snail mail.

Have a great last week!
With gratitude,
Grace

Saturday Memo, 5/12/18

May 12, 2018

Last Full Week
We are almost to the finish line!  Monday marks our last full week with kids before our last day of school.  I know it's tough to keep them focused and engaged with summer just around the corner but I appreciate all your work,  Thank you for showing up each day and teaching kids with your whole heart! 

Six Flags
I will work with Aimee this week on Six Flags and chaperones.  We will share out the information soon so everyone knows what will be happening that day.

Outs This Week
Aimee and I will be out on Thursday for our LAST DLT meeting.

I hope you are enjoying the beautiful (very warm) weather with your families honoring all out mothers near and far.  Happy Mother's Day to everyone.

With gratitude,
Grace
