*****Tomorrow is our Flint Hills Festival Field Trip!*****
Be sure your child wears appropriate clothing for outdoors and walking.

Thursday, June 8th, 206 will host a Lemonade Stand. More information on Heidi's page!

The third grade team was chosen to be the Loring Beekeepers. Most of you already saw the pieces spotlighting our bees and team of students on both Ch. 11 and Ch. 4 last week. We are very excited to be part of this unique opportunity.
In addition to the bees, our Garden was awarded a grant worth $10,000.00! (No, you are not seeing too many zeros) A giant THANK YOU goes out to Kathy Jelinek, (mom of 4th grader, Zoe) who applied for this grant!! More to come on how we will use that enormous amount of money for our Garden and Bee community.  

Our Music with Kyle program has had its final recording day. Over the past two months students were taken through the steps involved in music production from beginning to end. We are very excited to share with you our original song,                                                  The Way of the Leopard 
There are a few details still to be wrapped up before it is published; stayed 'tuned'. A final concert is scheduled for Friday, June 9th, 9:15-10:15. All students in grades 1-5 have a piece to perform. If you can make it, please consider joining us.

Your child brought home a letter explaining our, Home Supports system. There is expected work for your family every evening. Reading for 30 minutes is something you can do as a family. Please know that every activity engaged in, together, is an important step in growing your third grader. What adds to the learning is your conversation about the activity or event. When you drive home from football practice talk about teamwork and perseverance. As you wait in line at the store ask about the skills necessary to work in that store. Talk, Read, Write, Estimate, Add, Ponder, Question, Guess, Play. Each of those activities feeds and fuels formal instruction in the classroom. And, only you can provide it!
