Good afternoon kiddos,

Before we get too busy with the start of summer vacation, I want to take a moment to thank you.  All of you.  Every year I have this awesome opportunity to meet and teach children – something I have wanted to do ever since I was a little girl.  Every day that I come to work I am fortunate enough to teach you something, but more importantly I am fortunate enough to learn something from you.  This year you have taught me how to problem solve, to be more patient, to look at things from a perspective other than my own, and to find humor in things that may be otherwise frustrating (like all of my mistakis :)).  I have learned that I have strengths as a teacher and areas in which I can, and will, do better.  Most importantly, you have reminded me that I am doing the job that I was meant to do. It has been an honor to share these days with you.  When you are big, stinky 7th graders please stop by to say “hello.”

H. A.W. S. V!

Mrs. Rudd

Hello Kiddos,

Tonight is the “eve” of your summer vacation!  Yay!  There is no assigned homework, but I do have a couple of reminders.

  • If you did not purchase a yearbook you can get one tomorrow.  They are $35 cash.
  • Please send in the envelope you were given in class last week with 2 postage stamps so we can mail your report cards, placement information, and other end of year paperwork.

See you tomorrow!

Kiddos,

I had a nice last full day with you.  Thank you for your contributions to the fun!  If you were at the color battle… wasn’t that the best way to end the last full day of school ever?  I think we should do this every year!

There is no assigned homework tonight, so enjoy your Monday.  If you are getting make up work or test corrections to me please bring them in any time between now and Wednesday.

Homeroom kiddos – I still need 8 envelopes with stamps so I can mail your end of the year paperwork to you.  Please send them in ASAP, otherwise you will have to pick up your report cards and class placements from the office over the summer.

See you tomorrow!

Mrs. Rudd

Hello Olympians!

There is no assigned homework for any of the classes other than to get in any missing work or test corrections.  Since you cleaned out your locker today, it may be a good idea to clean out your backpack tonight so you aren’t carrying around a bunch of unnecessary items at school tomorrow.

Block 3 – Help our school!  If you have not donated for the color battle, please consider making a donation tonight.  If you have donated, thank you!  Any additional donations are appreciated and will earn you extra packets for the COLOR BATTLE on Monday!  Follow the link to make a donation or bring cash (or check) with you to school tomorrow. 🙂 https://anython.com/

Good afternoon!  Day 2 of the Olympics is in the books, and it was another fun afternoon with all of you as you competed in your events.  Just a reminder, devices are not allowed outside at the events. If you bring a device with you please leave it in your backpack so it does not get lost, wet, or broken.

Another important reminder about tomorrow.  Tomorrow is your last day with a locker. If your locker is very full, you may want to bring an extra bag with you.  You will be allowed to bring your back pack from class to class until Tuesday, May 23.  Tuesday the 23rd and Wednesday the 24th you only need to bring yourself and a pencil to school. 🙂

Homework tonight is:

  • Math 6 – H.A.N.T.A
  • Math 6/7 – p. 1061 #6, p. 1063, #26 and p. 1083, #6.  Tonight is your last night with assigned homework.  You may have make up work or test corrections, but those will be assigned on an individual basis.

See you tomorrow, Olympians!

Good afternoon,

Thank you for a wonderful day and a fun end to a busy week!  I had such a nice day with all of you today.

There is no assigned homework over the weekend, other than to have a nice weekend and to be kind to someone.

This next part is specifically for my 3rd block… This is Coach Rudd!  Let’s give Coach Stahler a run for her money!  If you have not donated yet, please consider making a donation for the first ever COLOR WAR! Every donation benefits our Durham Foundation, which directly benefits you, the students.  The added bonus is that we get to go head to head in a color battle!  What a fun way to raise money for such a wonderful school that serves the best students!  Follow the link to learn more, and share the link to earn more prizes and color packets.  https://anython.com/  I am $30 towards my goal, and plan to get closer to my goal this weekend.  Please help me make Durham the best place it can be for you! 🙂

Have a great weekend!
