Fleming Flyer 


Just a reminder, that the last day of school is Tuesday, June 20th with an early release at 11:30.
Please make sure that your student knows what they should be doing at the end of the school day, if it’s getting picked up, or walking home, etc. Thank you for your partnership support and volunteer involvement this school year. Your good help has contributed to a very successful year of learning at Fleming school.

Garden volunteers needed!
Please email Amy Downing at adowning@ccsuvt.org if you are willing to help out with the Peter Earle Sustainable Garden this summer.  We have four raised beds that have been planted by students full of tomatoes, basil, and lots of pumpkins!  They may need some weeding, watering, and love….  Can you help?  Let me know when you are available!

Lost, Then Found, but not Collected!
Please feel free to stop in the hallway by the Gym and check out the lost and found table for all things left behind this year. There is everything from sweatshirts, water bottles, shoes and even a bike helmet!
With only a couple of days left at school, please stop by to take a look and see if there was anything your child may have forgot to pick up, before it’s too late. After the last day of school, we will look into donating the items left behind.

Fleming Food Drive: “Yes We Can!”
Thank you to all the Fleming Students and Families that helped us to  collect non-perishable canned food to donate to our local food shelf. We have over 10 boxes of food that will be donated to our local food shelf.

News From the School Counselor:
The last day of school is approaching! On Tuesday, June 20, all 5th graders will start their day at ADL – please make sure your child is there by 7:45am. They will go to the ADL gym, and will have a brief meeting with the ADL staff. They will then go on a tour of the school, and we will return to Fleming by bus – leaving ADL at 9:15 am.
