May 18-20th

It is hard to believe this is our last week together. Click on the image of the choice board (below) for some fun activities to help us wrap up our year together.

This Week

Hello families! This week we will still be having our full class zoom on Wednesday at 9:30, but first graders will not be doing small groups this week because we know that all of you have different schedules for coming to pick up supplies in addition to many other things happening this week. 
When you come to school to pick up your child’s belongings, you will be directed to walk to the classroom and there will be a large bag outside of the classroom with your child’s name on it. I would suggest picking it up from the bottom with two hands (rather than by the top)— the bags are thin and easily torn by something sharp like the corner of a folder or a pencil. Be gentle with the bags as much as possible, I tried to pack everything up so that your child things will come home intact and in good condition.  It was bittersweet to pack them up, it was so fun to look at all the things they’ve done this year, but of course so sad to be packing it up to call it a wrap on the year… 

A few important things to know when you come to get your child’s belongings:

  • If you ordered school pictures, I placed them in one of your child’s plastic folders that they would be protected. Most of the time I placed them in your child’s green folder, but if the green folder had a bunch of pencils and stuff in it, you will find it in another folder or in the phonics binder. 

  • There is a plastic tub near the classroom door for you to return anything from the class such as books from our class library or anything else your child may have at home from the classroom. If your child has books in their book pouch, I don’t need the book pouch; just the books, please. 

  • I found quite a few Learning Commons books in desks and I have returned all of them. If you have additional books from the Learning Commons, (books with a barcode on them from Mount Bethel), there is a huge box outside of the Learning Commons to return them. 

I can’t wait for you to see your child’s work, especially work from the beginning of the year compared to now! There is a small gift for the students attached to the top of the bag.

Have a great week! 

Digital Learning May 11-15

It is hard to believe that this is our last full week of Digital Distance Learning! Everything you will need this week (choice board, printable activities) can be found in the document linked HERE: Choice Board May 11

In anticipation of one of the most beloved end of year activities, this week’s theme is… FIELD DAY! The choice board has some fun Field Day themed activities as options this week. Be on the lookout for additional communication regarding wrapping up our school year.

This week… sign ups and more!

Hello, everyone! 

I hope your week has started off well. It’s still a bit (ok, a lot!) crazy over here— the demolition/jackhammering phase is done (woo-hoo!), now moving on to the putting-it-all-back-together phase! Oh, and today we decided to take on an extra credit project— getting the garage door fixed! 🤦‍♀️It was already broken-ISH… but now it’s REALLY broken! Overall though, I am still feeling grateful that this “stuff” happened now when it’s much easier to be home, and I’m still trying to take advantage of the time with my now-Junior (I guess???) in high school. Today’s first parent-child activity was moving his weight-lifting bench from the garage to the shed. The shed is actually pretty sweet, with electricity and a window AC unit, however I’m suspicious that my son’s plan is to set it up with enough stuff to basically move out of the house! Hmmmm…. we’ll see.  For our next activity, we tried to get the garage door to close, then tried to fix it with lots of progress yet ultimately no success. But being asked to do ANYTHING with my 16-year-old child is like winning the jackpot, so I’ll TAKE IT! 😁💚💙🧡

Now on to more exciting things… be sure to catch tomorrow’s (Tuesday’s) MBTV as one of our OWN classmates will be hosting! Click here for that! →Mt B Digital Learning Page

Our class get-together will be Wednesday at 4pm. I will send a Zoom invite later this evening. Also, please sign up for a group time here by Wednesday morning→  Click here for the Group Sign Up  Hang in there! You’re doing a great job, and if you ever feel overwhelmed by any of this, please do not feel obligated to have your child finish assignments or stress over meetings— take a break and do what’s right for YOU and your family whenever you need it– everything will be ok! Thank you again for everything you are doing.

Hello families!
Sorry I am so late reaching out to you. Today just got away from me. I hope you’re having a wonderful day. I assume by now you’ve already seen the morning announcements and grand  proclamations, but just in case you missed it, here they are!

It was great to see you so many happy faces yesterday, and I am looking forward to pajama day tomorrow!
