Sowams Sings!: Our school-wide concert is June 13 at 10:45 am. Unfortunately, the weather is not looking very good. We are planning on having the concert inside the school. With that in mind, the concert is standing room only. Due to fire regulations and the number of parents who come to the concert, chair cannot be set-up. Students will be sitting on the floor and they take up about half the cafeteria. The other half will be for parents.
Outdoor Day: Our annual Outdoor Day is Monday. We like our students to wear certain colored t-shirts to represent their classroom. You can find the list of colors here. The cookout takes place at 12:00 for all students. Families are invited. If you have not already ordered for the cookout, you and your child will need to bring a lunch. All will be eating outside.
Third Grade Reception:This third grade event takes place on Wednesday, June 19 at 6:00 pm. This event is for the parents (and step-parents) of third graders and the third grader only. Siblings and others should not join us for this evening.
Reception Volunteers:We are in need to kindergarten, first, and second grade parents to volunteer with the Reception. Set-up and clean up crews are needed along with parental assistance during the reception. We are non-third grade parents to help with this event so the third graders’ parents can enjoy the evening. Please go to My School Anywhere to sign up or send Mr. Callahan an email.
Enrichment Cluster Product Sales:On June 19 and 20, our students will be selling the products they made at their Enrichment Clusters. The sales of these items will benefit the Maasai Joy Children’s School in Tanzania, Africa. A list of items being sold may be found here. If you would like to make a monetary donation, please make checks payable to Sowams School. We are also accepting donations of jump-ropes, toothbrushes, and packs of pencils. Ms. Freeman, our PE/Health teacher will deliver the items to the school this summer.
Reading Week:Reading Week continues this week. Please remind your children to make sure they are reading each night. Also, Friday children can dress as their favorite characters. We are all excited to see who/what everyone dresses up as.
Last Day of School: Our last day of school is Friday, June 21 at 2:45.
