Class Information

Welcome to K5A!

Week of March 11, 2019

Important Information
  • Field Trip:  K5 will be going to the Planetarium at the Milwaukee Public Museum on Monday to see One World, One Sky. We will return in time for lunch. Uniforms should be worn.
  • Book Orders:  Book order forms will be sent home this week. If interested, please place your order via the Scholastic website by Friday 3/22. This will ensure delivery by Easter (books make great basket stuffers). Our activation code is:  H3GNF
  • Silent Entry:  We will have silent entry every Thursday during Lent.
  • Irish Dancers:  On Friday, 3/15 Irish dancers will be performing for our school at 2:15 in the gym.
  • Volunteers:  I am looking for another volunteer on 3/26 from 7:45-8:45 to help assemble astronaut control panels. I am also in need of 3 volunteers on 3/28 from 9:00-10:00 to help supervise our Astronaut Adventure Day centers. If interested please sign-up on our Sign-up Genius page.
  • Astronaut Adventure Days:  Astronaut Adventure Days this year are on March 28th & 29th. I have a lot of special projects and activities planned for K5A but I need your help in supplying some of the items needed to make these days complete. Please send the following to school with your child on MONDAY, MARCH 25TH. Do not send them prior to the 25th as I do not have anywhere to store them.
    • 1 large sweater or shirt box with the lid
    • 1 pair of winter gloves
    • 3 plastic lids (margarine, frosting, cottage cheese, sour cream, etc) It is important that they DO NOT have any writing on the inside.
    • 5+ plastic bottle caps (soda, juice, milk, water). I have some but each child will need 10 caps to complete their project. I you could send AT LEAST 5 caps it would be a BIG help.
