We are in the home stretch! This is an exciting time of year with field trips, talent show, and so much more. Take a second to write down the end of year events.  Fifth grade parents, please note that the fifth grade graduation is on Friday (May 25th) and NOT on the last day of school.  This is due to the availability of the gym.
