May 30th, 2018
From Mrs. Rowley       
Last Friday we were blessed with beautiful weather and really fun activities on Field Day. We are very grateful to Mrs. Wise and the 8 th graders for organizing and leading the games and to the Knights of Columbus for treating our students to ice-cream!

Please join us on Thursday evening, May 31, for our annual Spring Concert and Art Show. The talents of our students will be on full display! Doors open at 5:45. Also, Summer Book Fair is coming on Thursday and Friday of this week.

On Friday 5 th and 8 th grades will enjoy Super Day. Next week will be the last week for Kindergarten and 8 th grade. Let us keep both of these classes in our prayers.

Have a blessed week.
School News 
End of School Year!!!
Summer is almost here! For grades 1st-7th, the last day of   school is June 15th. Students will be dismissed at 11am and there will be no after school care.  
Scholastic BOGO Book Fair
The end of the year magic_stars_book.jpg Scholastic Summer Reading Bo ok Fair is  coming to St. Ambrose at the end of May. As a way to say thank you to the parents and students for their support, Scholastic is offering a buy-one-get-one-free fair so all the students have the opportunity to have some really good books to read this summer.

The schedule:
Wednesday (5/30)-The fair is set up in the library.

Thursday (5/31)- The students make wish lists during the school day. 3:10-6:30pm - Families may come in and buy books.
Friday (6/1) - 8:10am-2:00pm The fair is open to anyone buying books. 2:00pm - The fair is packed up. 
This is the perfect way to get lots of good books to read during the summer. It's set up so that not just the cheapest books are free - when the books are lined up by price, every other book is the free one.

So put down the technology and get some reading materials that can stimulate your imagination! 
Ronald McDonald House 
For the past three years, our school families have been collecting pop   tabs to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of  Greater Washington DC. Currently our school has donated over 38 lbs of pop tabs to RMHC.
This is a reminder to send in all your pop tabs in the next few weeks before school closes on June 15.
Collection containers are located in each classroom and the 6th graders will pick up all pop tabs from each homeroom. Alternatively, parents can drop off their donations in the front office for Mrs. Kiernan's attention. The RMHC sells the metal tabs and all funds support their cause. You can find the pop tabs on soda cans, some soup or vegetable cans, cat food cans, etc.
Keep collecting pop tabs over the summer so we can top our recent donation and continue to assist the sick children and their families that benefit from RMHC.
Thank you for your help in supporting this worthy cause.
Mrs. Patricia Kiernan & the 6th graders

From the Editor

Summer is almost here, but there are still a couple more editions of the Buzz! Keep sending in your submissions! They are due on MONDAYS at 5pm. It's very important that you get your submissions in on time, or I won't be able to get them in until the following week. I accept submissions from teachers, staff, and parents. If you know of something interesting going on in our community, or want to give a shout out to someone at the school, I'd love to add it to the Buzz. I especially enjoy pictures. Please contact Mrs. Rowley to make sure that we have permission to publish pictures of every student in the picture. Pictures need to be less than 5MB. Thanks so much!
