Dear Awbrey Park Families,
The Art Show is here, the Art Show is here!  The 8th annual Awbrey Park Art Show is Thursday, April 30! It is a fantastic event. This is a great chance for students to show their stuff. Students have been making art projects in their classrooms, and that artwork will be on sale.  Parents can “sponsor” their child art.  The money that is made from the Art Show goes right back into each teacher’s supply budget so students can make more art.

To make our event even more fun, we are adding music. Stacie Yarbro, our music teacher, has been working with each grade level to perform a few songs. This is really casual. For instance, whatever Kinders are there at 6:05 will sing a few songs. If families can’t make it, or are late because of soccer practice, etc.–no problem. We just wanted to involve as many students as possible and make it fun for the kids and families. Thank you for supporting Art here at Awbrey Park!
Music times:
Kinder’s: 6:05-6:15pm
1st Grade: 6:20-6:30pm
2nd Grade: 6:40-6:50pm
3rd Grade: 7:00-7:10pm
4th Grade: 7:15-7:25pm
Bulldog Choir: 7:30-7:40pm (This is a Choir made up of 4th and 5th grade students)
5th Grade: 7:45-7:55pm

Thank you for your support in our Believe Fundraiser. 
We raised over $3300.  This money will pay for field trips and incentives for our kids.  The items should be here by next week at the latest and will be sent home with students.  Parents make such a difference at Awbrey Park.  Whether you are volunteering, helping your child with homework, or reading with your child–it makes a huge difference.  We appreciate your support.

The Book Marks for the Eugene Emeralds is due on May 4
If your student completes his or her 10-task goal (either 10 books or 10 chapters, decided by their teacher) he or she will receive two free tickets good for one Eugene Emeralds baseball game.

NO SCHOOL May 1st. There is no school for a district-wide Professional Development Day. We will be working on Journey’s, our new reading curriculum for next year.
