Proulx Newsletter 05/8-12/2017

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to week 32/37 of the 2016-2017 school year.  A big THANK YOU, goes out to all you parents who made STapp week very enjoyable!  It was fun to come to school and know we had delicious meals prepared, along with fun activities every day!  We felt appreciated!

It's the second week of May and students are working to get their Middle Ages Research papers done, as well as plan their "visual projects."  We look for to their presentation beginning June 2!

WHCS band members will be away from school on Tuesday, May 9th.  Our hope for them is a fun-filled, successful day!

Most of the 5th graders have been using their recesses to work on the 2016-2017 5th Grade video.  We look forward to seeing their hard work "on the screen" during the last week of school.  Mr. Riedl will let us know when it is ready to view sometime in June.

My class will begin to practice skits for Chapel (May 24th). Parents are free to come watch!  Our chapel presentation is from 9:00-9:25 a.m.

Looking ahead:
