10am-Noon
Gold Cup Bowling

Students will need to wear or bring socks to wear with their bowling shoes!
***Please note that 6 lanes have been reserved for 3rd grade students only. This also includes pizza and soft drinks. You may purchase your lunch from Gold Cup’s snack bar. No outside food may be brought into Gold Cup.

Dress code for last days:
Students may wear Spirit tops and shorts (no athletic shorts please) or jeans beginning on Thursday, May 17 through the end of school. Students may choose to wear a fun summertime beach shirt and flip flops on the last day of school!

Be sure to utilize the packet included in last week's signed papers with suggestions and ideas for multiplication and cursive summer practice and more!

Heads up on special items....you will want to retrieve the Writing Journals and yellow Writing Portfolios to keep. These will come home on Wednesday, May 16. There are many sweet examples of your 3rd grader's writing to treasure! 




On Monday, May 21  have your 3rd grader bring EMPTY backpacks to school. We will use this to transport folders, notebooks, workbooks, and supplies (unless you have donated to Campus Club). You may want to retrieve Math journals and cursive handwriting workbooks, as there are a few pages in each that we did not get to this year. They make great summertime practice sheets!
