Student Exhibition – Learning Day
Due to the changes in education and so many parents not sure of how to help at home, we are changing our approach to the Student Exhibition. We will be inviting parents to come to school at the designated times to learn with the child during the school day on June 3, 2019. Listed below are the times that the various classrooms will be available for visitation. Please send a note in your child’s planner to reserve your spot and allow the teacher to prepare enough materials or reply to this email by May 31, 2019. You are welcome to visit other classrooms if space permits. Mrs. Maust will be available if you have questions after your visit.

Art Work- As we approach the end of the year, it is time for student art work to be sent home. If you would prefer to pick up the art work in person instead of having it sent home with your child, please email Mrs. Lasher at Kelly.lasher@garrettcountyschools.org no later than May 31. Art work can be picked up during school hours or at special events like the Camp Out if Mrs. Lasher is made aware. All other art work will be sent home on June 1 with the students. Any remaining art work not picked up by June 10 will be sent home with students.
 
Live Clean, Play Hard Campaign- Students who participated in the PLAY HARD, LIVE CLEAN CAMPAIGN have earned a SLIP N’ SLIDE DAY on Tuesday, June 4. Please send your students dressed in their bathing suits. Girls should wear their bathing suits under their clothing and boys may wear their swimming trunks. Please apply sunscreen to your student before school if you choose. Each class will be on the SLIP N’ SLIDE for ½ hour. If your student has flip flops, water shoes or slides please send them to school as this will be easier than putting on their tennis shoe outside. Please send in a towel and a plastic bag for wet clothing. Students will not be permitted to participate if they don’t have appropriate swimwear. Students must have dry clothing to go home in. Please contact Mrs. Kennell with any questions.
