Summer vacation greetings, Thomas families!
I hope this message finds you enjoying your summer break, taking advantage of being outside, active, creative, and in touch with friends and family :-) Students, I trust you are reading at least 20 to 30 minutes a day, balancing out your life with a little work and a little play. Fifth graders moving onto sixth grade, make sure you remember your summer reading assignment. Please check out our website under the fifth grade teacher page to ensure you know your expectations. Look for school supplies too. Summer time is a super time for practicing Healthy Habit #7, Sharpen the Saw: Balance is best!
Ms. Klosterman-Lando and I have been balancing working at school and spending time with our families, as well. Ms. K-L loves going to the pool with her kiddos. My girls are preparing for the fair with 4H project. Thomas Elementary has needed our attention with renovation endeavor too. We have a new HVAC system being installed over the next few weeks to ensure consistent heating and cooling, as our current system is 30 years old. Also, our library staircase has been totally removed in order to allow a bit more space is the library and upstairs for a teacher workspace/resource area. We needed to make room for another second grade classroom upstairs. An additional project is the installment of a staff restroom on the first floor. Wow! We are ever-growing and changing!
Your Thomas PTO Executive Board has been hard at work responding to Thomas needs and your feedback. The team met in early June to create a fun-filled calendar year of awesome activities and events. These will be shared in late July. Thank you, President, Monique Fournet, Meg Ally, Connie, Hamm, Lynn Pinkus, Suzanne Schwarz, and past president, Lauri Lewis, for your time and effort! There will be two movie nights, two skate nights, a marvelous Monster Mash dance planned, and several other cool events. We will kick off the year with our social the day before school starts. This is tentatively beginning at 3:00 p.m., along with our Walk Through on Tuesday, August 15, 2017. Plans for next school year are shaping up! Let's continue, though, to revel in this glorious summer! Enjoy every moment!
Mrs. Davis and Ms. Klosterman-Lando
