What’s Coming Up – Week of June 1

Miscellaneous:

  • Field day is June 2 from approximately 9:20-1:45 at the HHS football stadium. Rain date will be on June 3. Please send a waterbottle, sack lunch (if not you did not order from the food service) and put on sunscreen. Girls need to wear a pink shirt and boys need to wear an orange shirt.
  • Safety reward will be on June 3 and the reward is a secret.
  • If your son/daughter is a safety, please have them check around for a safety belt or two because we do not have enough safety belts at school for our current safeties.
  • As stated in the note sent home in January, we have experienced many changes in funding for our extracurricular activities. Because fifth grade camp serves as a culminating activity for our students, we will not have a formal fifth grade celebration. Instead, on Thursday, June 4, the teachers have planned a fun end-of-the year punch and cake social at Georgetown for our fifth graders. This activity is for students only; no volunteers are needed at this time.
