Tallman Park

Hello families!  

First and foremost... Last call for any fun pictures from this year!!  First day of school, Lung Lab, holiday parties, etc.  I will be finishing up on Monday!!

Wednesday 5/31 - Field Day in the morning.  Please be aware of the weather and make sure kiddos are dressed appropriately and have applied sunscreen.  That afternoon they have earned a Pop and Drop.

Thursday 6/1 - Yearbook signing.  We will have a block of time in the afternoon for all fifth graders to get together and sign yearbooks.  Please have your kiddo bring a pen.

Friday 6/2 - Last Day Picnic.  See you at Tallman Park around 10:30.  Slideshow presentations at 2:30 in the Gold Rush gym

We are excited to celebrate the end of our students' elementary education with a big celebratory picnic.  This year's picnic will be at Tallman Park (across the street from Legend HS) on June 2nd from 10:30am – 1:30pm.  Students will ride buses to and from this event

Students will be provided with sub sandwiches there courtesy of Gold Rush, but we would love your help with a few other items.  Please see our Sign-Up to help out.  We welcome family to the event to join in the fun, but, unfortunately, cannot provide food for all, so please pack a lunch for yourself and head to the park!  Also in the sign-up is a place to volunteer to help with set-up and clean up: this helps us out a lot!!

We do have the whole park to ourselves this day so you are welcome to bring fun outdoor games (frisbees, soccer balls, etc.) and such as long as students are responsible for their own belongings.

After the picnic we will return to Gold Rush and gather in the gym for our End of Year Slideshows.  If you are only attending this portion of the day we should be beginning around 2:15.  Also, if you haven't already done so, please make sure you get a baby/toddler picture and a current picture emailed to your child's classroom teacher ASAP.  We are also looking for any fun pictures you have of the class from the year (Digger Dash, field trips, class parties, etc.).

At the end of the slideshow please stay in the gym while the students return to their classes for final good-byes.  Administration will speak to you for a few minutes and give you instruction on how to help the school say farewell to these great kiddos in our traditional Clap-Out. 

Thank you for all your support this year.  We are sad to see these kiddos moving on but know they are ready for what lies ahead!  We have all truly had a great year!

Yikes!!  I hope I've got everything covered! =)
