It looks as though we have enough volunteers to have our Field Day. Thank you to those that are able to help. It is scheduled for Tuesday, June 10th (rain date is Friday, June 13th). Please apply sunscreen on your child as we will be outdoors all day. We will be spending part of the day at the park so please send your child with extra water as well.
On Wednesday, we reflected and discussed the Core Values we have reviewed this year – students remembered all of them! On Thursday the children shared what their favorite/most memorable lesson was. The Respect Rap, Martin Luther King, Jr. video, and the lessons that involved eggs were the top picks 🙂
The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.
This week’s star students were recognized for various Core Values that we have discussed over the course of the school year. The students recognized were: Bindhi, Ephrim, Lucas, Matti, Mayla, Ryzek, and Talia.

Please be sure to check around the house and encourage your children to check their bags for Polaris library books. We are hoping to have all books returned to the library by Tuesday of next week so we have time to log them back in.
LOST AND FOUND
The end of the year is coming fast and we want to be sure that everyone goes home with all of their belongings. In an effort to help students locate items in the Lost and Found, we have been hanging them on a clothesline in the gathering room. Please remind your children to check this clothesline each day. Some have found things they didn’t know were missing! Also, feel free to come by and check for yourselves. Items not claimed by the last day of school will be donated.
Friday, June 13th at 7:00.
Mrs. Dudley’s class made catapults last week using simple classroom materials like popsicle sticks, rubber bands, tape and a spoon. They then used them to fling a marshmallow and a cube to discover what went further. They also used this as an opportunity to practice measuring and are doing a creative writing assignment on it.
Museum of Science
Primary students had the opportunity to visit the Museum of Science on Thursday. Everyone had a great time. Thanks to the teachers for coordinating it and to parents for chaperoning.
