Last week of folders!
Can you believe how close summer is? Every morning, the first thing my kids tell me is the number of school days left in the year. Today it is 5! 5 days left! Are you ready?
This is the last official Wednesday folder of the year! Even though there will probably be some more posts on the website and Facebook through the end of school and summer – so keep an eye out for them. In the meantime, in case I don’t see you before you go…
Have a fantastic summer and see you next year!!!
Reminders about End of Year schedule:
- Memorial Day Holiday- 4 day weekend whoo hoo!
- Awards Assemblies: check out the dates & times here.
- Last Day of school is June 1!
🎒 School Supplies
Lists will be sent home in the Report Cards next week. And we’re going to have an option to purchase school supply sets online – details coming soon.

What time is it?
Appreciation Pump Time!!! 💪‼️💪‼️💪‼️
It was another super successful Young Artist’s Workshop Day!
Thanks to all the artists and volunteers and a super big Appreciation Pump 💪‼️💪‼️💪‼️ to Soo Lee-Spaw and Renee Pinchero for organizing it all!
And another Appreciation Pump 💪‼️💪‼️💪‼️ to all y’all because our Guero’s End-of-Year Celebration raised $3,325 for Camp Champions!
That means any 5th grader who needs financial assistance to attend Camp Champions this fall will receive it!
And finally, another Appreciation Pump 💪‼️💪‼️💪‼️ to our sponsors!

This week’s folder items:
Save the Date- Ice Cream Social & Welcome Coffee
No School- Memorial Day
Ice Cream Social/Meet Your Teacher
Time: 3:30 pm-5:30 pm
Annual Back-to-School Ice Cream Social: Find classroom assignments and meet your teacher at this annual event. Come by any time after 3:30 and stroll through your classroom. The cafeteria will have information about the school available and ice cream/non-allergen icy pops available to cool off from the heat. Please plan on stopping by the cafeteria with your child.
The social is also a great time to bring school supplies to your classroom too! School supplies can be placed in a bag with your child’s name on it. Please do not place your child’s name on individual items/school supplies within the bag. If you cannot make the social, school supplies can be brought in the first week of school. Questions about supplies can also be posed to teachers at the social or during the first week of school as well, and purchased thereafter.

Bienvenidos Thunderbirds! Please stop by the cafeteria after dropping off your new and returning Thunderbirds and enjoy a nice refreshment with others. Perhaps we can join together in a sigh of relief, a gasp of joy, and/or some reassuring words/tissues (it’s tough dropping off that little Kinder fledgling) as our little ones return for a fantastic and full year of learning! Hope to see you there : )
