Around Town
On April 26th we will take a field-trip around Mayfield.  We will be visiting the fire station, mayor’s office, post office, art guild, and will go to Kess Park to play and have a picnic lunch.   I have asked some parents to bring items for our picnic lunch.  If you are a parent that I have asked, please let me know if it is okay!  I will send home a reminder the week before! 

Graduation Day
Graduation day is on May 17th at 9:30 am.  We ask your child to wear nice pants and shoes.  The shirt will show just a little, but most of it will be covered up by the gown. 

Graduation Packages
All graduation packages have been ordered.  The deadline was March 29th.  If you did not order a package for your child, your child will borrow a gown from Farmington and will return it after graduation.  If you ordered your child a package, we will take care of it for you.  We will have it steamed and ready on graduation day and after graduation you can take it home.

FRY Word Celebration
Starting next week, we will re-test your child on the first 100 words.  If they can say the first 100 words with 95% accuracy, your child will be able to go to Kendall Farms on May 15th to go horseback riding.   Please make sure you are reviewing the words, even if they have already passed the lists.  We will check for mastery by checking all 100 at one time.
