End of the Year!

Hi Parents and Students,

I honestly can’t believe the last day of school is tomorrow!  This school year has flown by and we’ve shared a lot of memories together.  I want to wish everyone a happy, healthy, and safe summer.  I will truly miss this class and I’m confident they will do amazing things in 5th grade and in life.

Thank you to all my parents for the support, help, and donations this year.  It is so greatly appreciated by the students and I.

THANK YOU for making my first year at Haigh one I will never forget.  I love it here and it’s thanks to my wonderful students and parents!!!  🙂

Picnic and Talent Show

Hi Parents!

I wanted to share some pictures from this week’s fun.  We had an awesome time at our Picnic Monday, special thanks to the parents who came, had fun, provided games and /or snacks 🙂 Also, today the 4th grade had a talent show in the gym.  We had some students sing songs, tell riddles/jokes, and perform an anti-bullying rap followed by dancing.  They all did so great, I’m very proud of them,

Enjoy the pics!

Monday is the Picnic!

Happy Friday!

Monday is our end of year picnic at Levagood!  Just some reminders for the day…

It’s supposed to be 90 degrees, so please make sure your child is dressed for the weather and has plenty of water to last them the day.

Please make sure your child has a bagged lunch.

They can feel free to bring outdoor games, sports, bubbles, chalk, etc.  Pretty much anything besides a baseball bat and hard ball 😉

If you are providing a snack for the class, there are 21 students. Any donations are greatly appreciated.  I will have popsicles for the children to enjoy when we get back to school.

Thanks in advance for a great school year!

Field Trip Tomorrow!

Happy Monday Parents!

The kids are having a blast at Field Day!  It’s a chilly one out there, and will most likely be the same tomorrow.  Please make sure your child has a brown bagged lunch to bring on the trip, and is dressed comfortably and warm 🙂

U of M is expecting us at 11, so we will depart school around 10:30 am.  Thank you to my parent chaperones, please note the change in departure time ( was previously 9:15). Also a reminder that if you’re coming, you have volunteered to drive you and your child separately.  We appreciate it and thank you!

A note is coming home today regarding our end of year picnic scheduled for next Monday, June 12th.  Please make sure to send the permission slip portion of it back so your child is able to attend.  If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask 🙂

Have a great week!

9 more days until summer!!!

PBIS-All School Picnic

PBIS Celebrations


Dear Families,


On Wednesday, May 31st we will be having a PBIS celebration to recognize your child’s positive behavior. This month’s celebration theme is All School Picnic! We will be having our picnic outside, so let’s hope the weather stays pleasant!


Your child may bring a towel or blanket to sit on during the picnic, and we strongly encourage students bring a brown bag lunch since we will be eating outside. However, lunch will still be available for purchase in the cafeteria.


Thank you,

Enjoy a few pictures from the parade!  Our class decorated visors with sayings of their choice and worked together in groups to make signs out of recycled cardboard boxes. They had a great time 🙂

Poetry Slam moved to Wednesday!!

Hi parents,


Sorry for the late notice, but the Poetry Slam will be moved to next Wednesday, the 24th.  We originally chose this Friday to be a relief from testing this week, but we are starting the ELA M-Step tomorrow.  It’s taking the 3rd grade a really long time, and with field day next week we cannot test on Wednesday.  So, we will spend Wednesday morning presenting our poems before we join in on the field day activities.

The students will ONLY have to present to our class, not the entire 4th grade.  I know some students are really happy about this 🙂

A Field Day notice is being sent home today as well.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate.

Mrs. Izbicki
