Greetings Van Buren Families!

It’s hard to believe that we’re nearing the last couple of weeks of the school year! As a reminder, the schedule for the last week of school includes full days of school Monday, June 18th through Wednesday, June 20th. Thursday, June 21st and Friday, June 22nd are both half-days of school with dismissal at 12:15 pm.

Mrs. Aukema, our physical education teacher, and volunteers from our PTA have been hard at work planning next week’s Olympics. This event is scheduled to take place next Tuesday, June 12th with a rain date of Wednesday, June 13th. We continue to look for volunteers for the event, so if you’re interested and available in volunteering, you can sign up on our PTA’s Shutterfly page, at . Many thanks to Mrs. Aukema and our PTA and those of you who have contributed to this event!

We are also very excited about our Community Playground Build, scheduled to take place July 12-15. What is a community build? It means we need your help! For this event, we are not only seeking volunteers to help put their hands together to build the playground, but the idea of a community build is also important to our school community and building positive relationships with one another. We continuously reinforce the importance of teamwork with our students, and this build provides an opportunity for them to see our families come together and work hand-in-hand. If you’re interested and available to sign up, please sign-up at at . You can also join the app for playground updates at .

As always, below you will find important dates to remember. However, please remember to keep an eye out for any grade-level specific or classroom specific events. In addition, I have included an attachment to complete if your child will
not be returning to Van Buren in the fall.
Enjoy the summer-like weather!

Mrs. Danielle Nahorney
