EGG HUNT THIS WEDNESDAY! We are planning our annual Easter Egg Hunt for students this Wednesday, April 12th. Each family should send in one dozen candy-filled plastic eggs for each child in school in grades PK-6th – in a bag marked with your child’s name. The 7th & 8th graders will be hiding the eggs for the classes, so you may remember them with some treats as well. Please do not fill eggs with chocolate or anything that would melt. We also have students with peanut allergies so we ask that no peanut products be sent. PLEASE SEND THESE INTO THE CLASSROOM ON MONDAY!. Thanks so much!
REGISTRATION PACKETS: Registration packets for the 2017-18 school year will be sent home in your Friday folder next Wednesday. THEY ARE DUE BACK TO THE OFFICE ON MONDAY, APRIL 24TH, THE DAY WE RETURN FROM EASTER BREAK. THIS WILL BE DRESS DOWN DAY FOR ALL FAMILIES COMING IN WITH THEIR COMPLETED PACKETS IN HAND.
LOOKING AHEAD: Since there will be no notes going home on Wednesday, due to the short week, please pay attention to the calendar, with Sketch Day, 5-8 Field trips, & 4-6 Track & Field Day all occurring the last week of the month.
SPELLING BEE PARTICIPANTS; The Spelling Bee students did a great job. There were 16 schools participating this year, so it was a pretty good competition.

Special recognition goes to Sara Beck, 7th grade, for placing third in her grade category. Way to go, Sara!
READING COUNTS NEWS: The date for the Reading Counts field trip is set for Monday, May 8, 2017, a state worker holiday. Plans for the Lake Ozark area include enjoying a movie of our choice at the Lodge of Four Season in the morning (all grades), a picnic lunch at the Funny Farm for all, then splitting up in the afternoon. The PK – 2 grades will be staying at the Funny Farm petting zoo, and the 3-8 grades will be playing Lazer Tag. We will need MANY DRIVERS for this trip, so please save the date! If it happens to be a rainy afternoon, the PK-2 will come back to school for fun & games instead. The Reading Counts 200-point firm deadline has been extended to Monday, April 24th, the day we come back from Easter break.
PRESCHOOL READING COUNTS TRIP: Although the Reading Counts trip has been scheduled for a Monday, the preschoolers will be able to participate. They will not be charged the daily fee for the additional day.
