This week we will be trying to stick with our normal schedule as much as possible but we have many fun activities planned. If your child will not be here until the end of school on Friday, please let me know. I want to be sure they have all of their supplies and I also have a little something for them before they leave for summer vacation.
On Thursday, we will be playing a game of wiffle ball at 8:30-9am with our 3rd grade buddies so please be sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather and wearing tennis shoes.
LAST DAY OF SCHOOL-
Friday is the last day of school and we are released at 11:45 am. Unless your child is a bus rider, PLEASE come to me to pick them up at our 1st grade door. The last day of school is crazy at Arrowhead because every grade surrounds the school and "high fives" the fifth graders as they are off to middle school. It's our way of letting them know we wish them well and allows the other grades to tell them congratulations. There are many parents all over the campus to watch the fun and take pictures and it tends to be extremely crowded.
THANK YOU for a wonderful year and allowing me to teach your child. This time of year is always bittersweet as I say good-bye for the summer and send them off to their second grade teacher. If they are bored or want to email me over the summer, I would love to hear from them. I check my email frequently throughout the summer.
I would also like to say thank you for all of your support at home with your child's reading, math and other supplemental support. When teachers and parents work together, it increases a child's success. After a long day at work, finding the time to help your child before bed can be a challenge but PLEASE know you are appreciated! I know your time is just as valuable as mine is with my children. THANK YOU for your support, kindness and a a wonderful year! I look forward to seeing your child next year (and every year after that). They will always hold a special place in my heart and they will always be "one of my kids".
Best wishes for a wonderful and safe summer,
