Please see the following email, shared with families earlier this evening:
Just a few reminders about events and activities taking place at school. First, this week is Spirit Week for all students at Christina Gordon, to celebrate the last week of the Amazing Waste Race. Our class has previously helped with Spring Cleanup as part of this challenge and is composting with our classroom isopods. This week, students and families at Christina Gordon will be participating in the following:
Second, our classroom is going to be holding a small Swap & Shop as part of the Amazing Waste Race. On Thursday, May 30th, students are invited to bring in clean, gently used items from home that they no longer want or need. Students can then swap these items for something "new," or can donate these items for others to reuse. Items like books, toys, etc. will be donated to Christina Gordon. Other items will be donated to other community organization such as the Center of Hope, etc. All students are welcome, but are not obligated, to participate. Students who do not have any items for donation will be assisting in other ways, such as helping to set up, keeping things organized, etc.
Third, our annual school Talent Show is upcoming and will be taking place on June 14th at 1:15 pm. Auditions for the Talent Show will take place next week, from June 3rd-6th. The following are the dates of the auditions:
Auditions will begin at lunch (12:30 pm) in the Music Room. This year, we are excited to have student leaders helping to make the final selection. Members of our Lighthouse Team will be assisting Mrs. Power throughout the selection process. Students are reminded to please practice and prepare for auditions. A large number of students audition in a short amount of time. As such, we ask that parents do not attend auditions, due to limited space. Students selected to perform will be informed in advance and parents are welcome to attend the Talent Show on June 14th in the school gymnasium. If you would like to follow our Music classes, join Mrs. Power's Facebook group: "Mrs. Power's Music Room" (https://www.facebook.com/groups/373510413495985/).
Finally, a reminder that a $5.50 bussing fee was required to pay for the transportation to and from our Wetlands field trip this past Friday. Guardians who have not already done so, will need to pay for this trip using Parent Portal (as per our earlier ski trip to Vista Ridge). For those that are struggling to use Parent Portal, please contact Sherri Manuel (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the office for assistance. If anyone is unable, for any reason, to pay this bussing fee at this time, please let me know and I will see that alternative arrangements can be made. As always, thank you everyone. Let me know if there are any questions or concerns in regards to any of the above,
