Pasta for Pennies

We are collecting coins and other donations for the annual Pasta for Pennies fundraiser in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Today your child took home a collection box. I will have a box in my classroom as well. See the attached flyer.. lls-pasta-for-pennies-flyer

How it Works: Students collect spare change. The change (or dollars!) can come from friends, relatives, or underneath the couch cushions. What’s important is that the change is collected and turned into classroom boxes. Students don’t have to wait until May 4th to bring coins/dollars in. If they would like to bring in some earlier, we will dump it into the classroom box and I will return their collection box so they can look for more!

We will be collecting donations through May 4th.

The top fundraising classroom will win a pasta party lunch catered by Olive Garden! Last year, Room 402 was that class. Let’s keep it going!


Save The Dates

Just some upcoming dates to think about in case you need to make arrangements with work!

  • May 16th: San Diego Zoo Field Trip. Here is a little bit of information. The permission slip and more will go home next week.

“Only one chaperone per family is allowed. We have a limited number of chaperones per class. Each class can have 4 chaperones at a free price and 4 chaperones at a price of $10. Any chaperones that want to come that do not serve in the military or have a zoo pass will be entered into a classroom lottery for the free passes and the $10 passes. If we fill those spots, parents are still invited, but will need to pay full price. If you are planning to chaperone you will need your own transportation to and from the zoo. Siblings may not attend. We want to remind attending parents that this is a “study trip” and you will be escorting a group of students not just your own child.”

  • June 2nd: Last day of school and Kindergarten end of the year celebration. Students will perform songs, earn awards, and have a pizza party picnic at Windingwalk Park to finish out the day. Parents are invited to it ALL!
