Dearest KDG Families,
I am sitting here drinking my coffee from my special new mug and thinking of how lucky I am to be the first elementary classroom teacher of your precious darlings. I wanted to say an overdue THANK YOU again for all of the beautiful flowers, classroom supplies, gift cards, cards, perfume, presents and goodies your families SPOILED me with during teacher appreciation week. I am overcome with gratitude and love. Each day I am so thankful for my job and my role in your child’s educational and life journey. Even after 15 years, each day is a new and exciting learning experience for me and I am so grateful and lucky to spend it with all of you and your little ones. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the support and hard work you have put in to make your child’s kindergarten year a success! I am so sad that the end of the year is approaching and the thought of sending them along is truly bittersweet for me. However, I am so very proud of all that we have worked on, grown from and academically accomplished this year! Together, we have made a great team and taken them oh so far.
The last couple of weeks, I have begun the end of the year assessments for Language Arts and Math. You will notice that reading packs have slowed down on new books and will stop soon, so it is very important that students KEEP READING from personal libraries, neighborhood library trips and raz-kids! I will not put my new class in until September, so your child will remain in my class account ALL summer yay!!! Last week was our last week to check out new books in the library, so this Tuesday we will simply turn in our books. Please make sure they are in your child’s backpack Monday night so they are ready to go Tuesday morning!
Here are some end of the year reminders and important dates to remember:
