Dear Awbrey Park Families,

School is winding down, but we still have so much to do!  It has been a terrific year as we have grown our Awbrey Park Community.  We want all families to belong and feel a part of our school.  We appreciate everyone’s willingness to be supportive of your children and our school.  Awbrey Park is truly a special place.

Come to Carnival Thursday, June 9, from 5:45-7:30 and show your Awbrey Park Pride! This is a great way to end our year by having fun and sharing food together. We will provide a slice of pizza for the first 400 people. There are no costs! Please bring the rest of a picnic dinner that will be just for your family and let’s have some fun. We will have an Obstacle Course, Dunk Tank, Face Painting, and other games. Part of our right of passage for the fifth graders moving on to middle school will be a chance to dunk them in the Dunk Tank! We are still in need of volunteers to run the different games. Please call the office if you can help out.

Our last PTO is on Monday at 6:00.  Thanks again to everyone for all the wonderful things that PTO has done for our school.  The PTO is so positive in making a difference in the lives of our students.  They are also a blast to work with.

We have our last PRIDE Assembly on Wednesday at 10:30.  Teachers will notify your child if they are getting a PRIDE Award.

There will be no school on Friday, June 10, because it is an elementary district-wide grading day.

We have Field Day on June 15. The sessions will run:

Kinders, 1st, and 2nd grade–9:00-10:10 (5th graders will run these sessions)
3-5 grade–10:20-11:30 We need help to run the second session. Please contact the office if you can help out.

Our 5th graders will end with a flourish.  They go to Splash on Tuesday, June 14.  They will have the 5th Grade breakfast on the last day of school, June 16.  Students will have a special breakfast created by parents and watch a slideshow of their experiences.  The breakfast will start at 9:00.  Parents are invited to come and join the fun.  We will have coffee and pastries for parents.

June 16 is our last day of school. The dismissal time will be at 11:40.
