This is it. The last week of school. It's been an honor to teach your children this year. I've watched them grow so much these past several months. They're some of the kindest, most accepting, creative, loving, empathetic students I've ever known. They truly give me hope for the future. I'm going to miss this class so much. I know they're going to do an amazing job next year. 


Welcome to the last full week of school!
Our fourth nine-weeks projects are due this Tuesday. On Wednesday, we'll have our field trip and Thursday is the talent show. 
It'll be a busy week, that's for sure!


i-Ready testing begins Monday and ends next week. I will continue to give students plenty of time to work on their projects in class. However, they will need to complete their family tree and the interview at home.


Testing continues this week.
I will introduce our fourth nine-weeks project on Monday. Students will have time to work on it at school, but portions of it will need to be completed at home.

Happy last week before spring break!
I hope you all join us Monday evening for our story-packed Literacy Night featuring Michael Shoulders, author of so many amazing picture books!
