Good morning parents,
  We are 6 days away from Kindergarten Graduation! The kids and I are so excited for you to see our (short) program and celebrate this special occasion! Thank you for signing up to bring food for the reception following the program. You can drop the food off in the morning to me at school, or bring it with you in the evening.
  Our graduation program is next Wednesday, May 23rd at 6:30pm. I would like the kids to be here by 6:10 to get dressed and ready to go! I have graduation robes for the kids to wear, so you can dress them however you would like for underneath. In years past, some parents have dressed their kids in church like clothes and others have let them wear comfortable clothes- it's totally up to you! 
  Next week we'll be wrapping up our final lessons and units. I will send home their Red folder on Monday (as usual) and everything else will come home on Thursday. If you can, send a plastic/paper bag so they can bring home their art boxes, folders, and papers! 
  Next Thursday, May 24th if the 8th grade graduation and closing service. The kids will be singing in the service, so if you're unable to make it, email me. The service starts at 6:30. They will sit with you and be called up to the front of church to sing when it's the right time. 
  Next Friday, is our last day of school (with a noon dismissal). The students will spend the morning with their Cougar Pal team- traveling from game to game, participating in "Cougar Olympics". It's a great way to end the school year, and I know they'll have a great time! They should wear their field trip t-shirt and comfortable bottoms. Some of the games include water, so you may want to send a towel or change of clothes. We won't have snack that day, but feel free to send a water bottle along for them!
  Their final report card will be sent home Friday at pick-up line! 

  Bible passage encouragement for the week: Call upon me in the day of trouble, I will deliver you and you will honor me. 

  Have a wonderful day!
