Wednesday Folder – April 26, 2017


Thursday is Poem in Your Pocket Day!

It’s super easy to participate:

  • Students, write your own poem on an index card.
  • Carry your “Pocket Poem” with you all day and read it out loud to at least five people.
  • Ask each of your listeners to sign the back of your card.
  • After you have five signatures on the back of your card, show it to Mrs. Underwood for a special “Poem in Your Pocket” day treat!

Your Opinion Counts!

Join Us Thursday Night (April 27th or May 4th) to review our Title I Compact. As a community school we know that parents, teachers and students are all partners in the educational process. This is an opportunity to share thoughts about your role as a parent in our community school. Meetings start at 5:30 in the Cafeteria. Childcare will be provided. There will be hot dogs, bring a side to share!
