I hope that you all are enjoying your summer!   I just wanted to remind you of the Summer Reading Challenge.  When we return to school there will be a raffle of two Kindles and an ice cream party for the top 25 readers!  15-20 minutes/ 4 days a week will help prevent the summer learning slide!

Enjoy yourselves and I hope that your days are filled with all of your favorite summer activities!



Dear Families,

Thank you for sharing your precious gems with me this school year.  We made many memories together and I hold each of your children close to my heart! It was a very emotional day for me on Friday. I’m SO PROUD of each and every one of my students.  They have grown so much!

Happy Father’s Day to all of the dads!!  I hope that your child remembered to give you their typed letter today. 🙂

Please encourage your child to go on MobyMax 20 min.  4 times a week to keep up and improve their skills in reading and math.  Just that little bit of time will help prevent a “summer slide” in scores.

Have a wonderful summer and please keep in touch.  Students are welcome to be pen pals with me on Google Classroom or they can write me an email.  🙂

I hope that your summer is filled with all of your favorite things to do!  My favorite things are: time with family and friends; campfires; catching lightning bugs; fireworks; BBQs; sleeping in and going to the pool!  Maybe we will see eachother at Ten Eyck one day!  Happy Summer!

STEM Engineering Challenge

Today we worked with Mrs. Kearney’s class to design towers with popsicle sticks and unifix cubes.  The challenge was to work as a team in building a free-standing tower.  We discussed equal and unequal forces, balance and gravity.
