FROM THE CAFETERIA: We are approaching the end
of the school year and preparing to close our current year
lunch accounts. Please keep in mind there are 8 school
days remaining when purchasing meals. Be sure to subtract
days that your child will be bringing a lunch from home. It
is important your child has adequate money in their lunch
account as charging is no longer allowed. Students
staying in our district will have any remaining balance
carried over to next year. Fifth grade student balances will
automatically be transferred to the middle school. Please

questions concerning your child’s lunch account.

returned to the library as soon as possible for year-end
inventory. This includes Math text books that your student
may have checked out at the beginning of the year. Every
unreturned library book represents a financial loss to our
library. Please help us maintain our resources for the Sumas
Elementary School library by returning borrowed books or
paying for lost ones.

for the summer. The school supply list will be included
with your report card. Additional copies of the supply list
