As we round the corner toward the end of this school year, it is a pleasure to see how much our student have grown and matured across the year. Our upcoming Spring Break (April 25-May 3) provides the children a chance to rest before the final few, busy weeks of school.
When we return in May, there will be many events to end the year. Classroom teachers will continue to keep you posted on those specifics via their Teacher Weebly blogs.
To help us all look forward to next year, I will be hosting a meeting to share more about our move toward the PYP (IB Primary Years Program) on Monday, May 16 at 8:45 AM. More detailed information will be provided in the next ENotes. I do hope you can join me.

Dear Parents - we continue to have difficulties when students have to go to the cafeteria to get a snack before their activity. Cafeteria is VERY busy at this time of day and they always get back to the gym late, after their activity group has already gone. This creates anxiety for students as well as lot of logistical issues for the coordinator who needs to accompany the late students to different activities in different parts of the school. Therefore, PLEASE send an extra snack for your child on the days when he/she has an activity - students really DO NOT have time to go to the cafeteria! Also, please pick your child PROMPTLY at the end of the activity at 4:30!
Please note that we have added an activity on Thursdays: SNACK MAKING 2. This group was created for the students who were already on the waiting list. The club is presently full and we can not take new applicants. We have also extended the STORY TIME activity on Thursdays to grade 3 and we can take new applicants for it.
Please see below the list of activities which still have available spaces in case you your child is on a waiting list and you wish to choose something else (up to the maximum of 2 seasonal activities per student):

ACES- From the ES PE Department
Project ACES (All Children Exercise Simultaneously), is the signature program of the Youth Fitness Coalition, Inc. Project ACES was created by physical education teacher Len Saunders in 1989 as a method of motivating children to exercise. ACES take place in May as part of National Physical Fitness and Sports Month along with National Physical Education Week. It has been labelled as "the world's largest exercise class”. Since 1989, millions of children from all over the world participate in ACES to promote proper health and fitness habits. ASW elementary students will participate on Friday, May 5th at 9:30.
