Feeling Friday

Enjoy the long weekend!

Parents, two special notes went home today. Both are about Field Day, which is on June 4. This year, Disney Field Days will have some new twists. Please read the note carefully so that you understand the new structure.

Most importantly, Field Days will now have Field Games! Parents, we need your help to make this happen for the kids. Please let us know if you are able to help with leading or running games.  We have a plan, but we won't be able to execute it without your help!

Tomorrow, we will take our EOY CPS Performance Task. Kids will be asked to read a grade level text and collect evidence from the text. They will use these ideas to create a graphic organizer. Finally,they will present this evidence in an essay. This will take some stamina, but we have been practicing all year! They are ready!
