Farewell 3rd – Hello Summer!

Dear Families,

It’s with sad hearts that we end this year, in this way, without our bittersweet end of year festivities altogether! We’ll always remember our students who worked hard and with great enthusiasm! They were terrifically caring and supportive of one another! We wish all a safe and rewarding summer!

We have summer birthdays to celebrate! Happy birthday to …

  • Hunter May 25 😸
  • Aidan May 29 🐊
  • Olivier June 12 🦖
  • Kaylee June 28🦄
  • Hollins July 18 🐴
  • Eben July 19 🐅

Business

Seesaw – I will be archiving our class this week. You will be sent a link so that you may print off your child’s journal. You can choose to print it in full color or black and white, and add it to your child’s box/file of 3rd grade artifacts.

Office 365 – You may also choose to print out your child’s work. However, your child will have the same account throughout their Cobb schooling, so there is no hurry (unless you change school systems).

Surprise

Occasionally, we will have surprise Zoom meetings this summer. They will be held on random Wednesdays at 10 a.m., so check your emails to see if one is scheduled. These are purely optional and just for fun!
