There are many fun and exciting end of the year activities planned throughout the week.
Monday we have "Step Up Day!" We will be visiting a second grade classroom. This may not be your student's class placement for next year. Instead, each first grade classroom visits a different second grade classroom. We will be visiting Mrs. Tolbert's room. Mrs. Tolbert will be speaking to students about what they can expect in second grade.
Tuesday is the Specialist Showcase! Thank you to all of those who sent in their RSVP! Students are so excited to show their families all their hardwork! Students will be taking you from different "Specialists" within the hour. Please be sure to stay with the class and not to go off on your own.
Friday is our last day. It is a half day. School begins at 8:45 am and ends at 12:30pm. If your student's dismissal routine is changing for the end of the day, please be sure to send a note in with your child. Also, many students come in backpack-less on the last day. This poses a problem as students will be bringing many different items home. Please be sure students have a backpack with them.
It is very hot in our classroom. Please send your child in with a labeled water bottle. Sugary drinks and juice are not encouraged during the high heat of our classroom. It often gives students stomachaches, thus I am requesting only water bottles be sent in to be left on desks. Juice boxes, capri suns, etc. will be saved for lunch.
Thank you for all of your support throughout the school year. I have truly loved being your student's teacher. I will miss each student next year as they travel to second grade! I am so proud of the progress that has been made academically and socially. :)
