Good evening. I would like to send out some information about laptop turn ins. Seniors will turn in their laptops on May 18th. The rest of the students will turn in their laptops on May 24th. If students turn in their laptop with damages they will go until after the first full week of school next year without a laptop. Examples of damages would be broken keys, broken screen, graffiti on the computer, etc. I sent out an email to students on April 25th warning students about this. It has also been in the announcements everyday since then. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the school.

The first graders have had a fun month. Last week, we had our final Come Read With Me Day of the year. The first graders always look forward to this day and love having a special grown up spend the afternoon with them. We had a great turn out for our four Come Read With Me Days this year. Thank you to all the parents, grandparents, and special grown ups that spent an afternoon with us. Today, the first graders had their field trip to Jefferson County Park. Even though the weather didn’t cooperate, we made the most of it. The kids explored the nature center, had a picnic lunch inside, got to hold turtles, and pet or hold a snake. We made it outside for a short hike before it started raining again! Our last stop was the Carnegie Museum in Fairfield. None of us had been there before, and we enjoyed taking a tour and seeing lots of different displays showing the history of Fairfield and Jefferson County. It’s hard to believe that the end of the school year is quickly approaching. We’ve had a great year with our first graders! Kim Brisby Jina Heisdorffer Jody VanDerHorst
