Room 13 families,
Join me tomorrow at the Krikorian theatre in Redlands at 2:50 for a showing of Bears!
The Run Around the Lakes is just around the corner. I love participating in this run for two reasons: 1) I love to run and 2) it’s even more fun to run with ILCS families (especially Zieberonians). Every year ILCS has a huge showing; it would be awesome to get all of our room 13 families there. Registration forms can be found in the office, and they will also be sent home by Mrs. Hafner. Registration forms and payment are due no later than April 23rd!
As many of you know, Sarah Amento (an ILCS mama) recently found out that her cancer spread and is inoperable. On May 17th, there will be lemonade stands set up around the city of Yucaipa in order to raise money for the family. There will also be baked goods for sale, so if you would like to gain additional service hours, you can spend some time baking delicious treats prior to the event. I will personally be hosting a stand at our school, and would love to have as many kiddos and families join me as possible. This is a great service opportunity, but also an opportunity to show our love and support for one of our very own families. The lemonade stand will be open from 11-2, and it would be so fabulous if you all could join me!
Thank you to everyone who turned in your permission slip! If you haven’t yet, please do so. Below (in bold) are the list of chaperones I have so far. Next to your name, there is a B for bus, or a D for driving. Please let me know if I have this information correct, so that I can plan for bus space accordingly. Also, if you drive, you are welcome to drive your kiddo, but you must meet at the school beforehand. You can, however, go straight home after the field trip!
We have extended day this Thursday. Please make sure kiddos pack big snacks and lunches as it is a long day! This extended day we are having a “Secret Agent/Detective” theme, so send your kiddos to school in their trench coats, glasses, and Deerstalker hats (apparently that’s what you call the name of the hat that Sherlock Holmes wears)!
Finally, we have SBAC testing at the end of April/ beginning of May (dates are below). This is a pilot test for the new state adopted Common Core standards. There will be no spelling homework that week and a limited amount of math homework. Just like with previous state testing, please make sure your kiddo comes to school well rested and with a full tummy (and just please make sure your kiddo is at school on those days!).
There are lots of dates below… check them all out for the important information, and so you can mark your calendars! Thank you, as always,
