Dear American Academy Parents,
It was so nice to see everyone at literacy conferences this week. We are so proud of all the growth they have made this year! Just 4 days of first grade to go! Please take a look at the newsletter for some housekeeping items and important dates. We hope you have a wonderful weekend.
End of Year Housekeeping
Please send your child to school with an extra bag for them to bring home their supplies in by Tuesday. There will also be no math homework the last week of school. Be on the lookout for a summer work packet for both math and literacy coming home today in Friday folders. This is optional, but a great resource to have on hand. Razz Kids logins will be active throughout the summer as well. Please reach out to your child’s homeroom teacher if you have any questions.

Field Day Thursday May 23rd
First grade will be having a later lunch (1:00), please pack an extra snack. We will be taking a snack break in the morning as well as one in the afternoon. Please be sure your child brings a water bottle, and sunscreen. This year’s Field Day will incorporate Firefighter Appreciation Day. Students will be given t-shirts to wear on Field Day to in honor of the incredible firefighters that risk their lives to better ours. Like last year if you are not volunteering, we ask that you please stay behind the flagged rope to ensure all students can find enjoyment during Field Day.
We will not be having an end of year party, as Field Day is on the last day of school, and it is definitely a party in itself!
Curriculum focus: May
History: We are wrapping up the year with a fun unit on exploring the west! We will learn about Daniel Boone, the Louisiana Purchase, Lewis and Clark, and Sacajawea.
