News & Notes:
- Scholastic Summer Reading - the best thing you can do to help improve your child's reading is to encourage them to read ... read ... read! To help with this, Bennie is once again participating in the Scholastic summer reading challenge. Because this is a national challenge, students can start logging summer reading minutes NOW ... as we learned on our Skype Day, not everyone gets out as late as we do!
- Save the Date - information went home regarding our Geocache Scavenger Hunt. I am looking for family volunteer to assist with our year end/annual Room 107 Geocache the last week of school. I will need 9 volunteers to help lead the kids on a Geocache Scavenger Hunt ... Wednesday, June 15 (with a rain date of Thursday, June 16). We will end with a class picnic at Champaign Park.
- Field Trip - We are really excited to finally meet our Poetry Pen Pals from Arno. Please return the permission slips as soon as possible. The cost of the field trip is covered by our "Room 107 Field Trip Fund"
