I can’t believe the year is almost over! It is a bitter-sweet moment when the school year is wrapping up. It was a pleasure working with you and your child. I am proud of the hard work your child has achieved this year. Remember, every year will get harder. It is important to show your child the importance of school and the reasons why. It is never too early to start talking about future goals. If you would like to send me a message with some pros and cons for this year that would be great! As an educator, I like to reflect on my teaching and communication. Any feedback will allow me to grow as a teacher and person 🙂
Just a few reminders for the upcoming weeks:
-NWEA testing is complete.
-This will be the last week for spelling test and the test will be Friday, May 31st.
– Science study guide will go home Tuesday and the test will be Thursday May 30th.
-Homework from now until the last day of school is reading for 20 minutes and working on math facts. IXL is a great resource to use as well.
-The following week: June 3, 4 and 5 will be off. School resumes June 6. It is important that your child attends school until the very last day. We will continue teaching until the last day.
-Field day is June 10th and if it rains, the make-up will be June 12th. We NEED parent volunteers. If you would like to volunteer let me know or call Ms. Sandi at 313-827-6750. For field day, students don’t need lunches because the school will provide lunch. Make sure students are dressed according to weather. Students need to bring a bag with a change of clothes and towel, in case they get too wet from the water activities.
-The last day of school will be Friday, June 14th which is a half day. Dismissal is at 11:45. If you are traveling earlier than June 14th, please let me or the office know.
-3rd grade team decided to send summer packets so students can maintain their learning stamina. Students will bring a folder filled with many scholastic magazines to read and answer comprehension questions. In addition, we sent a math packet with a calendar of daily activities. Students will receive a plastic sleeve and erasable marker so they can practice their fluency on multiplication and division. Since the students made so much growth, we didn’t want them to regress (back slide) with their multiplication facts. As you know, this is a lifetime skill that needs to be mastered! Taking your child to the library to check out books is another activity.
If you have any questions and would like to contact me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for being a great support for your child’s learning and enjoy the summer break 🙂
