B-6 Parents and Students:
Be sure to look through your student’s white envelope! This week there are several flyers and student work samples.
Next week is the Scholastic Book Fair at Graystone! Our class will attend Wednesday, 11/29.
Be sure to mark your calendar for a parent meeting for ALL fourth grade parents, Tuesday 12/5 from 1:15-2:00 in B-6 ... it is time to begin planning for Gold Rush! As many of you know, a tradition at Graystone in fourth grade is Gold Rush Day, an all-day event “re-enacting” activities from the gold rush. The event will occur May 18. This is a parent-run event; we have LOTS of supplies, information, history, and props, but will need a cadre of volunteers to make this event a success! The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the event, share and explain what resources we have available, and begin to fill volunteer positions.
