Countdown to Rocket Day!
7 days until the launch! Parents, grandparents, church & school family are welcome to join us for Rocket Day on Friday, May 21. Bring your camping chairs and picnic blankets and enjoy the fun! Weather permitting, our tentative schedule is 9:00 a.m. K-2 launch near the playground followed by grades 3-8 launch in the fields west of school. 11:30 a.m. lunch back by the playground. We'll have a picnic cookout (free of charge for adults, but donations are welcome) with hot dogs and hamburgers. To help us plan enough food, please let us know you plan to eat lunch with us. If the weather is not favorable in the morning, the launch will begin after lunch. Rain date: Thursday, May 27 at 1 p.m.
Sign Up for Extended Care on May 28
Do you need Extended Care on Friday, May 28 after the early dismissal at 11:30 a.m.? If so, you need to sign up using the online form or by contacting the office or Mrs. Kramer. Deadline is Friday, May 21. We will need at least 7 children signed up in order to provide care. Please plan to bring a sack lunch from home.
Help, Please!
We are looking for a couple of volunteers to help dismantle the 2 old basketball nets on the back playground area and replace them with new ones. Please contact Mr. Lustila for details.
