Today is a scorcher, and I hope you’re all staying cool. The next two weeks are going to be really busy for us, and hopefully the weather will continue to cooperate!
Tomorrow, Monday, the Sixth Graders and I will be leaving for a brief, but excitement-filled Sixth Grade Trip to downtown Seattle. We are so grateful to everyone to helped this possible by having their car washed - they raised almost $600! We will be gone on Monday and Tuesday, returning Wednesday full of end-of-the-year glory. It was truly remarkable to watch this group of students work together to form a plan, to set a budget and raise their money. It’s going to be a fun tourist getaway in Seattle for all of us!
The rest of the Turquesa community is remaining behind at MCH, but not to be outdone, Mr. Robin and Ms. Khavitha (my sub) will be taking everyone on a strawberry picking field trip tomorrow morning and then enjoying the bounty upon their return to school. What a great, delicious way to welcome the summer! Tuesday will be a regular school day.
On Friday, June 10, Crazy Hair Day is back by popular demand. Students are welcome to wear wacky hair and mix up their clothes (like wearing everything inside out). Students are also welcome to bring a favorite non-electronic game to play in the afternoon with their classmates. Students will be invited to perform for each other at our end of the year Talent Show in the afternoon. It’s going to be a fun afternoon for all.
Next week, we’ll have our Graduation Ceremony on Thursday afternoon. Parents of Sixth Graders are invited to be our special guests. It’s going to be a really meaningful ceremony at La Casa. If your child is not returning to MCH next year and they are not a Sixth Grader, we will be honoring them in a “See You Soon Ceremony” during Graduation. All Elementary parents are welcome to join us.
Next Friday, June 17, is the last day of school. We will be doing our annual Field Day extravaganza during the half day of school. If you’d like to help out with that event, please let me know.
Let me know if you have any questions.
