Service Saturday - May 2

courtyardIt’s almost that time again to mark your calendar for some outside gardening fun!  On Saturday, May 2nd students, staff, family and friends are joining forces in the courtyard for our 5th Annual Service Saturday.  We begin at 8:30 and will finish by noon.  This will be another SUPER OPPORTUNITY for all students, staff and families to work together and for 6th graders to collect a few service hours.  Here are some of the projects we will be working on:  weeding, planting seeds in the raised vegetable beds, planting seeds and seedlings in the flower gardens. Some of the tools that you could bring to help support these jobs are:  wheelbarrow, gloves, shovels, and rakes.  Everyone is invited, come with your parent, and bring a Providence classmate, friends, relatives, even your neighbor and join in the fun!  We hope to see you at Providence on Saturday the 2nd of May!

below.  We know that a good teacher-student match and a productive mix of children are ingredients for
success, and we carefully consider each child’s strengths and needs during this process.  DO NOT request specific teachers, for this does not take into account the many variables to be considered.  It is far more valuable to share particular academic or behavioral information.

This form is available on the Providence website and it can also be completed online.  Completion of this form is optional.  It must be returned to Mr. Kraft either through email (, a hard copy may be sent to the office by June 1 or via the online form submission.  Please know that input from forms turned in over the summer are difficult to honor since the grouping process may have already started.
