The final Newsletter of the year!
This Folder is yours to keep!
Last Friday’s school assembly and “1st grade Luau” was a wonderful retirement send-off for me. Yes, I guess I have taught a lot of students over my 28 years at Grace. You parents “toasted me in style.” Thanks to Becky Morgan, Mary Williams, Jennifer Brayton, Charis Goodman, Allison Yumlu, and Ayanna Brown for hosting. I loved the Hawaiian theme!! What fun we had dancing, eating, and drinking. (Look in the Folder for my thank-you note.)
It has been an honor working with you and your child this last year of my teaching career. Hard to believe that it is coming to an end. Thanks for all your support and homework supervision over the past months. I can assure you, from the many family stories the children share, they believe you are the best parents ever! Thanks for the many hours of volunteer time that so many of you have put in. We are blessed by active parents in our Grace community.
Check your house for any Wonders’ textbooks and return by Thursday.
Children will take home their Math, Handwriting, Your Turn, Grammar, Spelling, and Science books this week. We don’t finish all the pages during the year, so children can work on them over the summer.
ENCLOSED in Folder:
Summer Reading: There will be an all school Summer Reading incentive for the students. This will keep them motivated and progressing with their skills; it will be a good reminder to keep up with reading over the summer. Look for information about that program this week. Children can continue Lexia over the summer too.
Clean-out, Lunch, Games, Awards: On Thursday, children can bring an extra bag to help carry home any items that don’t fit in the backpack. Later, (12:30pm) room parents will serve a pizza lunch; bring a lunch from home if preferred.
After lunch we’ll join with 2nd graders for games and then individual student awards. Regular dismissal is at 3:00pm. Parents are welcome to join us for any of the activities..
Closing Service: Friday morning; Parents are welcome. Dismissal at 10:00am.
