Dear Students and Families,
It is a bittersweet time of the year when we look forward to our summer vacation, but we have to say goodbye. This class has been full of the sweetest, most sociable and hard working 3rd graders I’ve ever met.
We’ve had lots of memorable moments to include calling for the Lirpaloof bird on April 1, building Pentopia (our classroom economy), biography shoeboxes, lunch bunch, learning about Japan, Brazil, Colombia, China, India and Egypt from classmates, dancing to GoNoodle, going to the Tellus Museum, edible soil, playing with Joey, and on and on. You children worked hard reading good books, writing wonderful stories and essays, conducting experiments, studying famous Americans, and learning more problem solving strategies in math. We loved our animal friends, especially eagles, bees, sharks, lots of fish, owls, hamsters, elephants and gorillas!
Thank you all so much for my year end gifts. My little beach/pool getaway bag is awaiting me as I write! You all have spoiled me terribly! And thank you for all your kindnesses after the loss of my mother. You’ve eased my path during this difficult time, and the children have kept me busily engaged and cared for.
Have a wonderful summer! Read a lot! Keep the promise to read all the Time for Kids. Continue to practice your multiplication facts. Work on MobyMax. Use your imagination —run, explore, build things, make a new friend, learn something new, create! The next school year will begin before we know it.
Lots of love,
