Zoo Tomorrow

Don’t forget our trip to the zoo is tomorrow!

  • Your child does not need to bring a backpack to school on Monday.
  • Please send your child’s disposable sack lunch (labeled with their name- gallon size ziplocs work best) to school with them even if you are also going to the zoo.
  • You need to be at VPE by 4pm on Monday to pick up your child.
  • When we arrive back at VPE, we will have a checklist to dismiss students, so do not take them until your child’s teacher has checked you off.
  • Dress for the weather- rain or shine!  Looks like it is going to be warm and sunny 🙂  Put sunscreen on at home and feel free to have your child wear a hat or sunglasses.
  • Your child does not need to bring any money with them to the zoo because we are not going to the gift shop or buying extra “treats”.

Chaperones- Don’t forget to be at VPE at 8am for the mandatory meeting with Ms. McVey!  After that, feel free to head on up to the zoo!  We will see you in the School Safari Camp to get your kiddos!  I am sending home an itenerary in your child’s folder today!

  3. If you are on Facebook, you should like the VPE page.  Lots of good updates and reminders about all things VPE.
  4. Everyone is doing a great job bringing their snack each day.  If anyone would like to send in some individually wrapped snacks to refill our “pot luck” bin for those days when one of our friends forgets, I would greatly appreciate it!


Camp Read-A-Lot

We will have Camp Read-A-Lot on Wednesday!  It is going to be a great time.  Please return your child’s reading calendar tomorrow so we can add up everyone’s totals.  We have a full day of camping fun planned 🙂  Don’t forget to send in your wrapped book for the class book exchange.

If you would like to donate items for smores, I would greatly appreciate it.  We need graham crackers, marshmallows, and Hershey bars.  Let me know if you would like to donate!

MAP Testing

Our class will take the math MAP test tomorrow morning!  Our class ROCKED it out on the reading MAP with 100% of our class reaching their year-end target!!!  Let’s see if we can do just as well on the math 🙂  Please make sure your child gets a good nights rest and eats a healthy breakfast, so they can do their very best.  Also, remind them to take their time!  Let’s show what we know!
