Dear Longhorn Families,
I cannot believe it is May already! Where does the time go? I am so proud of all our Longhorn children and staff. Everyone has worked so hard this year and persevered through changes in what we teach and how we learn. Thank you for your work as parents with encouraging children to read at home and asking questions about what students are reading. We have a lot planned for students this month.
Ride for Reading
On May 6 our school was selected to participate in a program called "Ride for Reading." This is a national organization of people who share an interest in reading and bike riding. The organization selected our school from across the United States to share a love of reading with our students. Members of their organization will transport books to our school via bicycle. They will give a short presentation of bike safety and the importance of reading. Students will then select three or four books to take home and read during the summer.
Our end of year band and orchestra students will put on a concert for parents on May 9. Our jazz band and chamber strings group will also perform.
Our final time to honor students for their achievement in academics and behavior will take place on May 21. Grades 1-3 are scheduled for 8:30 a.m. and grades 4-6 at 12:30 p.m.
Our last day with students is May 22. We will host a talent show and a teachers verses 6th grade kickball game. There are also several field trips happening and special days planned for students to close out the year.
Don't forget to read all summer! We will continue with our reading challenge to read for 20 minutes a day throughout the summer. We will have a reading class offered at Douglas through the Summer SKILLS program. Look at the classes offered at Project S.T.A.R. Our PTO is helping with scholarship for academic classes.
It is an honor and a privilege to work with your children. Have a happy summer. We will see you soon!
