Remember that Monday, June 11th is our End of the Year Celebration from 2:30-3:15.

The students will each take a turn sharing a writing piece with you and then end with some songs.

All of the students have worked really hard this year and would like to show you how they have grown.

Please do NOT bring any food.  Mr. Awada does not allow food in the classrooms.

This is just an event to share with parents how much their child has learned!

Free Summer Packet online to download!

Dear Parents,

Thank you for a wonderful school year! We covered a lot of topics this year, and made important gains in our grade-level skills.

As summer vacation approaches, I want to share this free workbook with you to make sure that your child doesn’t succumb to the dreaded “summer slide” phenomenon. On average, students lose over two months of grade-level math and reading skills during the summer break. This puts them at a disadvantage when the next school year begins.

Hope you and your child enjoy the free workbook.

Have a great summer!
