Pirates of Grammar Island and May Clap Off

Weekly News June 4, 2018

Our first ever production of the Pirates of Grammar Island was a huge success!  I saw some of you and hope everyone was able to come watch the show.  Thank you for helping your child learn their line(s) and sending them in the the correct clothing for each performance.  I hope you enjoyed the show!

Our End of the Year Picnic is this Wednesday.  The picnic will be AFTER brunch at 11:15.  Please have your child eat a small snack during brunch so they are ready for picnic food.  On Friday, I sent home the flyer with what items I would like you to bring in on Wednesday.  As usual, I had more parents volunteer than I needed.  Thank you very much.  Below, you will find a list or what is needed.  Please send in on Wednesday morning.

Chips-Vinnie and Gianni

Mustard, Ketchup, Relish-McKenzie

Hot dogs-Daniel and Rachel

Buns-Valentina  and Jacob


Cookies-Adrianna and Leyla



Volunteer to help set up, serve and clean up-Donovan, Julianna and Allie

In this week's homework folder, you will find summer reading activities.  Nothing needs to be returned to school.  I hope you will keep reading and have fun!

the last day of school is Thursday.  Students are dismissed at 12:00.  There is no lunch at 11:40. I suggest sending a heavy snack for 9:55 recess.  Please be sure your child knows where you will be picking them up at 12:00.

It's been quite a year!  We have learned a lot and had a lot of fun.  You have be very supportive and generous with your time and your treats and gifts throughout this year.  Thank you for everything!  I hope you will continue to support your child and the Monte Gardens community.  Have a great summer and I'll be seeing you around!  I'm so excited to send your children off to 3rd grade!
