The school events are out of control in the month of May and the students’ calendars are filled with end of the year field trips, awards assemblies, state testing, and graduation! It’s a very busy and exciting time for the students!

Last week was the school wide talent show where students could sign up in solo or group talent acts. Some of the special acts included bunny raising, branding, somersaults, singing, and dancing. The talent show is a fun event for students to boost their confidence and self-esteem in a safe environment. The 5th graders held a bake sale to help raise money for 6th grade camp, the Student Council sold drinks, and the students attending Washington, D.C. sold hot dog and tri tip meals to raise money for their trip. The Parent Teacher Club hosted the talent show and raffle.

The 3rd and 4th graders are preparing for their field trip to the Rosie the Riveter museum in Richmond on Tuesday. I can’t wait to hear about the trip!

The 8th grade graduation will Thursday, May 31st. Mark your calendars!

Expect the river flows to be very high for quite some time. Last weekend it was up over 2000 cfs. Respect the river and wear life jackets. It’s not a joke when the river is this high!
