MOMS’NIGHT OUT –  May 27th!
We are looking forward to seeing all those amazing Thoreau Moms at the Thoreau Moms Night Out on May 27!  This is a free event sponsored by the social committee.  We will provide light snacks, desserts and non-alcoholic drinks.  BYOB.  Please RSVP by Friday, May 22:  See you there!
BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION  – Final Deadline Friday May 29!

We’re down to the final days of our Box Tops for Education classroom contest! If you have any box tops still sitting on the counter, please put them in the lobby collection box by Friday, May 29 to be included in the tally. (Please keep clipping even after that date, though.) Don’t forget to put your child’s teacher’s name on a slip of paper in the bag so that we can credit the right classroom. If you’re dropping in single coupons, writing the teacher’s name or class code on the back is fine, too.  Who’s in the lead in the contest now, you may ask? I apologize that the lobby scorecard is sorely out of date. I’ll be updating it weekly so that the students can gradually see how the results unfolded during the year. If you want to follow along with them from home, click here to see photos of the progression since September à Thanks for clipping, everyone! – Kimber Lynn Drake, Box Tops for Education Coordinator

FIELD DAY – Field Day is Tuesday, June 2! Cheer on Thoreau students as they participate in games and activities at this fun-filled event, 9:30am to noon. (Rain date:Tuesday, June 9.) Parents and siblings are invited to watch the action. Please apply sunscreen to your children before school and send them with a water bottle since most of the activities will take place outdoors.
