I’m sitting in our classroom this quiet Friday morning. Everything is boxed up and pushed to one side of the room, so the custodians can get in here and clean. The walls are all bare now. There’s no evidence of the memorable year we had together. It’s sad, but then I start remembering our special times and it puts a smile on my face!
I remember Pentopia, market day, butterflies to and from Mexico, an incredible eagle family (Ozzie, Harriet, E5 and E6), Ms. Schmidt, owl pellets, poster projects, your stories, your first big week of tests, Buddy, origami, field trips, your maps, celebrations, our king and queen, solar ovens and s’mores, 3rd grade Olympics, class meetings…and the list could go on and on. Thank YOU for all the memories, your hard work and excellent spirit!
A picture to remember you by is displayed on my shelf. Thank you for that, and the Target gift certificate where I’ll happily purchase things every grandparent should have.
When you look over your report card remember that a 2 means work harder-you’re almost there, and a 3 means keep doing what you’re doing. Keep up with reading and MobyMax this summer. Limit your screen time. Fill your summer with play, explorations, play, making things, play, running and jumping, play, magic tricks, play, experiments, play, doing nice things for others, play —you’re only a child once! Oh, and be good to your parents, they only want the best for you!
Onward and upward, fourth grade awaits you!
love to all, Mrs. Pennington
