Week of May 9th

We've had a lot of fun things going on this week as we prepare to wrap up the 2010-2011 school year.

Enjoying nacho chips and salsa...

...along with taquitos in Mrs. Whitaker's room

Making tie-dye t-shirts with Mrs. Reese

Picking strawberries at Ottawa Farms...

...then enjoying a snack afterward

Friday, May 6

After lots of practice, our Mother's Day Program was finally here.  We shared our songs and the gifts we'd made and then, just as it started to rain, we settled down to enjoy brunch with our moms.  We had to eat in our classrooms instead of the Memorial Garden, but we had a lot of fun anyway!

Thank you to everyone who donated to our Moms Helping Moms project.  We collected several boxloads of items for Safe Shelter.

Tuesday, May 17

Today is the graduation day for our 4s and the last regular day of the 2010-2011 school year.  Tomorrow we meet at Tybee's Memorial Park at 9:30 for our end-of-the-year picnic.  Pack your drinks, snacks, and side dishes to go along with the grilled hotdogs that the school will provide.  It looks as if the weather will be perfect for a morning of fun and fellowship.

Getting Ready For Mother's Day

 Moms, we've been working on our Mother's Day gifts and practicing our songs, and we can't wait to share them with you!  Bring us to our classrooms at 9:15 on Friday and then go over to the Sanctuary and get a good seat.  We'll be in at 9:30 to start our program.  

Afterward, we'll go over to the Youth Education Building to get some muffins and fruit salad.  Bring a blanket so we can sit outside and eat and enjoy the beautiful weather.  Photography by Lori will be there to take Mother's Day pictures.  Cost is $8 and all of the school's proceeds go to charity.  We're so excited!
