An Egg-stra Special Week

A quick note before we look at the week. This is a short week as there is no school on Friday, April 3. This is also the beginning of the Easter/Spring break. I wish everyone an egg-cellent break, and a great time hopefully enjoying some of this nice spring weather we've been egg-periencing!
Students will return back to school on Monday, April 13. 

Monday, March 30  
           This is our regular library day for both home books and Daily 5 books, however the library will be undergoing some work this week so there will be no new books this week. Regular library will resume April 13. If students have late books please try to have them returned no later then Thursday!

Tuesday, March 31 
          Quiznos hot lunch day! If you pre-ordered a few weeks back you don't need to pack anything but snacks today. 

Wednesday, April 1 
         We have a special guest coming in to share about the Ukrainian tradition of Pysanky egg decorating. This fits in with our look at the people of the Prairies in Social Studies this year.
The Lethbridge Living magazine has an interesting article that goes into detail about the history and tradition of the Pysanky. Check it out as a family if you have some extra time this week, these beautiful eggs hold a lot of neat meaning to many people in Southern Alberta.

        Mrs. Fletcher's afternoon Kindergarten and Mr. Entz's Grade 4/5's class will host our Celebration of Learning assembly starting at 1:00pm in the gym. Come celebrate with the great students at Park Meadows.

Thursday, April 2 
       If you signed up to treat us with a snack for our party I've contacted you through email. Thanks in advance for helping us celebrate! Our snacking party will take place in the afternoon. Most of our work will have an Easter theme today. There will be other fun activities too, so stay tuned for details. 
** please remember to return ALL book kits before the Easter break! This gives me time to organize, and prep them to start again.***

Friday, April 3 - Good Friday.
     No School! Easter Break begins!

Question of the Week: What 2 things is the school in search of right now?
1. Pop Tabs! We are doing our final pop tab push for the year. The container is looking pretty full, but there it would be great to have it overflowing for the count day in May. Please continue to send those in with your child!
2. White Dress Shirts! Our school Science week is coming up in May. We are looking for gently used mens or boys white dress shirts. Our goal is to have a "lab coat" for every student in the school come Science week. Please check your closets and ask your friends to help us collect. Thanks!

Have a terrific break! Please continue to treasure the time you have together; read lots, play lots, and relax when you can! I look forward to seeing everyone again on April 13!
