Thank you and Happy Summer Break

Thank you to everyone who sent cards and gifts! I truly appreciate your kindness and generosity. I have really enjoyed working with your students this year. I really grow to love all my students each year! I will miss them a lot! I sent home math and handwriting to work on over the summer. It is important to do some kind of academics over the summer so that students keep using their brains and don’t get the summer slide (loss of skills) over break. Students will get a prize for any books they complete over the summer, if they bring them back to me next year. I hope everyone has a wonderful, fun and restful summer. ENJOY! See you next year! Mrs. Keebler

Field Day is Moving to Tomorrow

Field day is being moved to tomorrow due to rain and storms on Wednesday.

Your child needs to bring a towel and water bottle. (frozen bottles work great on hot days)

We will spend the morning outside doing station rotations and then in the afternoon the fire truck will be coming. The kids can get wet with the fire truck as it sprays us in the back parking lot.

**Due to bathroom space issues we will not be able to change after the fire truck. You can either take your child home after the event (around 230) OR we will play on the playground after until we dry off.  If you take your child home please check out with your teacher!!!!

This Week News

It is the last week of school! This week we will be wrapping things up, celebrating summer birthdays and closing up the classroom for the summer.

Monday – Bring your backpacks, we will be cleaning out our desks, I will be sending home any unfinished workbooks to complete over the summer. Doing academics over the summer will help your brain avoid the summer slide. Summer slide is when kid”s reading and math levels go down during the summer and they lose their progress they made during the school year. I will give a prize to anyone who returns a completed book in the fall.

Tuesday is not an early release. Dismissal at our regular time. Picnic day – Bring a beach towel and we will eat outside.

Wednesday – is field day in the morning

Thursday is summer birthday party (Mo, Youssef and Noah) and end of the year party – feel free to bring a treat or food to share with the class. Does anyone want to buy pizza for the class?

Friday – last day of school 1/2 day. Dismissal at 12:05 Enjoy your summer!

Natural Disaster Computer Projects

Here is the link to our Natural Disaster Computer Projects. Students had a lot of fun using a program called Adobe Express Create. They were able to take our research reports and turn them into a movie or animation. The best way to view these would be on a Dearborn Chromebook or computer that has Adobe. You probably won’t be able to view these on your phone. Enjoy!
