  • Class Book and Library Fines

    Posted by Amy Petrini on 6/1/2023

    Hello Families,

    Our class has been hard at work on creating a story for publication.  Our book is about a first grade rattlesnake who wants to lose her tooth. (Please ask your child for more details.) Each child has at least 3 contributions with words and artwork in our book.  Unfortunately, I am quite late with getting it to the company for publication. It should be ready about mid June. In the past I have given it to students at the beginning of second grade or before school let out. This year I was thinking that I could drop it off at your house if you would like to receive it before then.  I will be sending home order forms and envelopes with your child today. Please fill out the form and send it back to me ASAP but no later than Monday. I need the form back even if you do NOT want to buy one.  Please also  let me know if you would like to sponsor a book for a child in our class so that everyone can have their own copy. I assure you that they love getting their own book. This will be my 4th year in a row doing it.   
    I also sent home past due notices for the library. Please return and/or pay for your child's book before school lets out.

    Today is our field trip to the UM. Please meet us by the gym around 12:45 if you would like to join us. Have your child wear good shoes for running around and playing in. NO siblings please.

    Rattlesnake Elementary School Families,

    We have an exciting fundraiser in store for students to help bring much-needed funds to our school!

    Our Fundraiser at a Glance:

    1. Kickoff Event. Students will learn what to expect from the fun days ahead and how the fundraiser will work.

    2. Character-Building Videos. Our school will follow along with a character-building program called Grand Land Adventure. Students will learn about five different U.S. National Parks while building character and raising funds to hit our fundraising goal.

    Throughout the week, our class will earn fun rewards based on how much we raise on our classroom donation tracker. When our class earns a reward that adds some extra awesomeness to our day, I will be sure to let you know!

    3. Event Day. This is the epic grand finale - Rattlesnake Fun Run!

    Our school has a fundraising goal of $25000 and we are raising funds for our PTA budget


    Your Next Steps:

    Register at MYBOOSTER.COM today if you haven’t already, and share with family and friends!

    Thank you in advance for your support of our fundraiser!

    P.S. To register your student on search for Rattlesnake Fun Run.
