    . Wow, the end of this school year is

    near! What a busy and productive year it

    has been! Thank you to all families for

    the hard work you have done with your

    child to help ensure growth and success.

    It truly does take us all working together

    to be sure everyone is the best they can

    be.

    As summer quickly approaches, it

    is time to review some of the summer op-

    portunities available for student continued

    learning.

     Summer Cub Club is an option which

    is very similar to the After School Cub

    Club. Select students were given invi-

    tations for this two-week session in

    July. Please get those registration

    forms back so your child can partici-

    pate in this program and continue to

    develop reading and math skills.

     The Augusta County Library, Church-

    ville Branch is offering a reading pro-

    gram during the summer. There are

    also similar programs at the Augusta

    County Library in Fishersville and the

    Staunton Public Library. Please keep

    your child reading throughout the

    summer.

     You may continue to access the BME

    Portaportal through the internet. This

    provides children with a wealth of

    practice activities in reading and math

    so that they can continue to practice

    skills. If you need more information

    about the login for this, please call the

    school and someone will be

    happy to get the information to

    you.

     There are books on the market

    such as Summer Bridges which

    give students a review of various

    subject areas through a set of

    activities to be completed briefly

    each day of the summer. These

    can be purchased online or from

    the school store behind Seven-

    Eleven in Fishersville.

     Simple routine activities that you

    can complete together during the

    summer can help students de-

    velop and extend their skills.

    Cooking with kids is a classic.

    Many math skills are developed

    as students measure and re-

    duce, or multiply the servings of

    the recipe. Reading directions

    and following them also enter in

    as kids cook. Carpentry projects

    or gardening projects can also be

    a fun way to practice skills.

    Again reading directions, follow-

    ing directions, measuring, etc.

    can be developed.

    So as this school year comes to a

    close, plan the summer doing fun

    activities with your child/ren and help

    them engage in learning opportuni-

    ties as well. It means so much when

    adults spend time with them, and

    what a better way to enjoy your

    summer days than spending time

    with your child!

    Third Grade News Happy Spring! It’s such a busy time of year as we get close to our SOL tests, and the third grade teachers would like you to be aware of a few things.

    -Cub Buck Auction- We will be having a cub buck auction at the end of the year in order to collect all loose cub bucks. Please send in any lightly used toys in order to help us with this. -Sunscreen: We will be outside more often as the weather gets nicer. Please make sure that your child comes to school with sunscreen and a hat, especially on special days like our kickball tourna- ment and field day. These dates will be in your child’s planner. -Newspapers: Mrs. McAllister is in need of newspapers for Science class. Please send in any old newspapers you may have at home with your child. -Tennis Shoes: Please make sure that your child has tennis shoes for gym and recess. If they are coming to school with other types of shoes, they are welcome to keep a pair here to use during re- cess and PE. -Books: Many of our classroom books have gone home, and haven’t returned. We love that your child is enjoying reading at home, but it is time for all books to come back. Please check in closets and under beds, as we need these books for next year’s students. -Ice Cream: We will be having an ice cream party to celebrate successful SOL testing. Please be on the lookout for more details in Friday folders. -Mints/Water- During SOL testing we’ve found that it’s helpful for students to have mints and water to keep their brains engaged. Please consider donating a bag of peppermints and a few bottles of water to your child’s class. - SOL Testing- Your child will get a chance to show what they’ve learned this year on their SOL tests. Please make sure that they have plenty of rest the night before, and have a hearty breakfast before they arrive. It’s also important that they arrive on time to school. We’re looking forward to seeing them shine! -Homework- There will be no more vocabulary homework going forward. Instead, we will be review- ing released Math SOL questions, and covering additional reading skills. Please continue to check their planners nightly. Thank you so much for your continued support as we wrap up the year!

    From the BME Cafeteria:

    This year has gone by super fast, and

    now it has come time where we will

    have to discontinue lunch charges as

    of FRIDAY, MAY 16th. That will give every- one plenty of time to get them paid up. This also means if your child has a charge, they will have to call home for the money or a packed lunch. Please make sure your charges are paid as we cannot leave them on the books at the close of the year. Thanks so much for another successful school year!

    This month we will be wrapping up our fitness testing which will

    include the running and flexibility tests. We’ll be preparing and per-

    forming our yearly mile run with the 4th and fifth grade classes.

    This run is to prepare for their aerobic fitness test this spring. It is a

    four lap run around the middle school track and it is timed in accor-

    dance with The Virginia State Standards and The Presidents Chal-

    lenge for Physical Fitness. The kids have been running in class

    with tag activities and aerobic type exercise stations. The following

    suggestions will be an additional help to your child’s performance:

    Please make sure they have a good but light breakfast:

    Nothing too sugary or heavy. Toast, a good cereal or

    oatmeal would be a good meal for them. Fruit juices

    are not suggested as they tend to be somewhat acidic

    and disturbing to the stomach.

    A good night’s rest. NO LESS than eight hours. This activity

    is somewhat strenuous and requires enough sleep to

    awaken refreshed.

    Medicines, inhalers, and other meds need to be taken care

    of or ON HAND during the activity.

    Sufficient footwear: Running shoes are recommended

    with sufficient traction for outside or inside in case of

    inclement weather.

    Training at home: A day on the weekend at a local high

    scho
