Those little flu bugs seem to be particularly tenacious this year to be effectively putting people on their backs clear into the end of April. Hopefully your family has been able to avoid the malady altogether. It seems to be on the decline this week after a one day record of 23 students (27% of our student body) absent. Just a reminder to keep them home for 24 hours after symptoms subside. Hopefully we will put the germs to rest for this school year soon!
My news item of the day is that we may be able to put in a second order of school sweatshirts before the end of the school year. We are very close to the minimum order of 10 sweatshirts. The price will be $30 each and $5 more for a name on the back. Please let Mrs. Ohme (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you would like to get in on this order. We'll be placing the order at the end of next week (May 8).
House T-shirts need a minimum of six shirts per color, so it is unlikely we will be able to put another order in until next fall; however, we do have some extra sizes in each house color at the original price of $15, so you are welcome to pop in to the office and see the selection if you missed the first go-around.
I would also like to remind you that four of our teachers will be hosting four weeks of summer camp this summer with a different theme for each week. The age groupings are students going into K-2nd and 3rd-6th. You can check out the web-site for a sneak preview. We'll send flyers home soon!
More to read in the attached Message Wednesday including some stellar volunteer opportunities. I'm also attaching a flyer the community Mother Mentor's program asked me to share with you.
May your week be inspired!
