Many Thanks for a Great Year

Dear Families,

We cannot believe we are writing our last blog post for the year. We just want to take a few minutes and thank you again for your continuous support throughout the year. Our kids made great strides this year and are ready for third grade! This week we will be sending home work from the year. On Thursday/Friday notebooks and folders will be sent home.

On Tuesday, June 27 we will have our End of Year Celebration from 9:30-10:30. If you plan on taking your child home after, please remember to fill out a dismissal change with the office.

Some summer suggestions for reading/writing:

  • Read Daily
  • Write in a writer’s notebook/ journal at least 3x a week.
  • Wonderopolis
  • ABCya

Some summer suggestions for math:

  • Ixl.com
  • Visit MoMath in Manhattan
  • Download the bedtime math app
  • Explore the math that comes up naturally in your everyday lives when you are travelling, shopping, and cooking

As a fun end of year activity we will be making slime on Friday. Each child will make their own slime and take it home in a baggie. Please send your child with a bottle of liquid Elmer’s glue (4oz. white or clear glue). If your child would like to add in sparkles (glitter) they may bring that also.

Again, thank you for a wonderful year. It has been a privilege to be part of your children’s lives, and we look forward to hearing about their continued growth next year. Have a great summer with your families.

Ms. Mathis and Ms. Anne
