What's going on in Room 125?

Weekly Update: 5-8-13

on May 8, 2013

Hello! As mentioned in my previous update, the end of the year is soon upon us! Here are some upcoming events:

Enrichment Day is this Friday! We will be headed to Acres of Opportunity Ranch with our Recess Buddies. We will be there longer than usual (leaving Edison at 9:30 and returning around 1:40) to engage in a variety of Buddy activities, including field games, horse painting, riding, created this year’s Recess Buddy video and a picnic lunch. When we return to school we will be creating a Recess Buddy photo booth to help us remember our Buddies. This is an important trip that will allow us to have fun and share with our Recess Buddies, who have demonstrated great commitment and responsibility this year. Please make every effort to assure that your child is on time and at school on Friday so that everyone can celebrate with their Buddies!  Please make sure your child is prepared with:

1. weather appropriate clothes, including layers and things that can get wet/dirty

2. barn appropriate shoes (that can get wet/dirty)

3. a water bottle

4. a packed lunch

5. apply sunscreen in the morning if desired as we will be outside most of the day

Field Day is on Friday, May 24th. Students in Room 125 will be participating with their general education classes. We will be rescheduling horseback riding from this day to either Tuesday or Wednesday that week (I will let you know when that date is finalized). Prior to field day, every class will be tie-dying t-shirts to wear that day. Please send a plain white t-shirt with your child by next Monday, May 13, so that they can participate with their class!

We will be having both a Recess Buddy Party and Room 125 Party/Continuation during the last few weeks of school. I will let you know when these dates are finalized and hope you can attend!

We have three 2nd graders who will be starting at Eagleton Elementary for third grade next year. We will celebrate with a “Continuation” at our party. We are also starting to talk more about this change with pictures. Next week we will be making books about starting at the new school. If your child is going to Eagleton next year, the more you talk about it, the better! I’d also recommend going to visit and/or play on the playground to start to help them feel familiar with their new school. Ms. Laging is open to classroom visits towards the end of May, and I think it would be wonderful for you to visit the class with your child if you have the time. This is a great way to let them meet Ms. Laging, see the school, and start to comprehend the changes.

Please make sure to stay informed of end of the year events and festivities with this website, Edison’s site, and Thursday folder fliers. I know a lot is coming up, so do not hesitate to call, e-mail, or write a note if you have any questions about upcoming events!

Thank you for all you do. Looking forward to a few more weeks of progress and fun!
