It is so hard to believe that tomorrow is the last day of school.  I would like to send a HUGE heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you for sharing your son/daughter with me!  It is been an amazing year with so many memories!
Tomorrow is our clap out; therefore, students are asked to wear their middle school t-shirts they received at Vazzy's last Friday.  In addition, at 11:00 am we will be enjoying pizza (donated by the Rocco and Gasparrini family) and an ice cream sundae party (my treat); if you are available please join us!
Have a safe and wonderful Summer!

Tomorrow students are expected to arrive at school at normal time (they can take the bus).  Graduation will begin promptly at 9:00 am.  This is a formal ceremony students should dress accordingly (no jeans or shorts).  
Following graduation the students will return to the classroom; you will be prompted to go to the classroom whereupon you will sign your son/daughter out of school.  At that time you should head over to Vazzy's (337 Kenyon Street, Stratford) for the luncheon.  
Graduation is a beautiful ceremony be sure to bring your tissues!

Just a reminder that tomorrow is our field trip to Putnam Park.  It is very important that your child comes to school with a completely disposable lunch!  In addition, Mother Nature is not cooperating with us as the weather forecast is calling for rain; therefore, please be sure your child dressed warm and wears rain resistant attire (jacket, boots and a hat).  Finally, we have two chaperones: Mrs. Doris and Mrs. Gasparrini.  However many parents have asked to drive separately and meet us there, I suggest carpooling (meeting at school and leaving together) since parking is EXTREMELY limited.  We will be leaving the school promptly at 8:45 and returning back by 3:00.
No matter if there is rain or shine we will still have a great time!

I am so proud of your children; they did an awesome job tonight!
Since we are all getting home late, I am canceling math extra help tomorrow morning (perfect timing as we are starting a new unit).  We will resume next Wednesday.
Just a reminder that parents are invited to our hygiene talk on Thursday at 2:00; Dads are welcome to join their son, Moms are welcome to join their daughter.  
Tis' the season for a lot of happenings, you will hear from me often as we finish out the school year; stay tuned!

Please see the letter from Christy Buda regarding lunch at graduation!

Dear Parents,
I can't believe 5th grade graduation is almost upon us! As we continue to prepare for our year-end activities, we are finalizing our menu for Vazzy's Four Seasons and need to provide them with a list of food allergies so we can accommodate these students accordingly. Please email me at by Friday May 19th if your child has any food allergies/dietary needs.

Thank you!

Christy Buda
