What a FUN DAY! I hope your child had a great day, and I wanted to thank all the parents who volunteered to make this day such a success. On Monday, we will be at the beach! Here's a copy of the letter your child brought home. Hope to see you there!

Dear Parents,

We Will Have a Year End Celebration

at Island View Beach

Three classes (Mrs. Ellison, Mrs. Coles, and Ms. Backhaus) will be having their end of year celebration at Island View Beach. We will be leaving the school around 9:45am, and returning to the school around 2:15. We will need parent drivers for this field trip. Parents are welcome to stay, or come and go at their convenience. We welcome everyone to attend (moms, dads, grandparents, siblings) as it will be loads of fun! The children will have a chance to play, explore, build sand castles, and create forts.

  • If children would like to bring beach toys, please make sure they are in a bag, and are labelled with the child's name.

  • Although there will be a lifeguard on duty, the children will not be allowed to go into the water above mid-calf, so please do not send flotation toys.

  • Please ensure that your child has appropriate beach clothing (bathing suit, change of clothes, footwear/sandals, hat, towel, and sunscreen).

  • We are requesting that each child pack in a a plastic grocery bag, a water bottle, plastic plate, and utensils. This is to help avoid an abundance of extra garbage. Thank you!

  • As this is a year end party, each child is requested to bring a food item to share with their peers. The food item needs to feed approximately 6 people. Please bring food that is ready to eat, as there will be nowhere to heat or prepare items. Please also ensure that items are healthy and lunch appropriate (veggies and dip, cheese and crackers, trail mix, fruit, sandwiches, wraps, mini bagels, etc).

We are looking forward to a wonderful day. Hope you can join us!

Judy Backhaus, Emma Coles, and Alyssa Ellison
