Thank You!

This "thank you" is long overdue! Thank you so much for the gifts you gave, words of affirmation you communicated, and time you spent in the classroom during Teacher Appreciation Week.  You show care so well and I am thankful to be a part of this community!

Your students have been working hard the last few weeks to write, publish, and illustrate their own books in the style of Eric Carle. We would love to share these stories with you!

Community Cleanup Day Details

Community Cleanup Day is this Wednesday, April 17.  Here are a few details you should know about the day of this event:
  • Second grade will be splitting time between jobs at the school (cleaning windows and hallways, planting flowers, etc.) and picking up trash at Gap Park.
  • We will be planting flowers at the school, so all chaperones should bring a trowel and a watering can to use with your small group of students.
  • The K-6 dress code is as follows: jeans, long pants, capris, or shorts to the knee.  No leggings or tights may be worn as pants.  Students should wear sneakers or rain/work boots.  Remember that we will be working outside and will get dirty!
  • Lunch will be at 11:30.  You are welcome to come and join us!  It is a pizza lunch for those who have placed the order ahead of time.  Students who have not ordered pizza should bring a packed lunch.  Class and family prizes will also be announced during this time.
  • This is a 12:30 dismissal.  You are welcome to take your children home with you.  All students should check in with their classroom teacher before leaving.

Spring Field Trip

Second grade's spring field trip is rapidly approaching!  We will be going to Lancaster County Central Park on Tuesday, April 30.  A naturalist from the park will be doing two interactive sessions with us on Food Chains and Backyard Wildlife.  We will have a picnic lunch with time in the afternoon to hike and complete a scavenger hunt.  We would love to have you join us if you are able!  There is no limit to the number of chaperones that can accompany us on this trip.  Please email me at mgarber@linvillehill.org and I will add you to the list!

There is some reimbursement for spring field trip costs that comes from the various hot lunches you order throughout the year.  When I have those amounts, I will let you know the remaining cost of this trip for students.  (There will be no cost for chaperones.)

Community Cleanup Day- HELP NEEDED!

Hello all!  Community Cleanup Day is just one week from today!  We are still in need of a number of volunteers to help the day of the event.  K-2 will be shuttling between projects on the school campus and picking up trash at Gap Park.  If you are able to chaperone for that event, please email me (mgarber@linvillehill.org) or contact the school office.

As of today, our fundraiser total is $27,353.  Our goal is $50,000.  Please encourage your children to find donors for this event.  1st grade is currently winning the K-2 bracket.  We've got some work to do in the next week!
