Dear KDG Families,
The time has come to celebrate our learning, hard work and summer! Next week there will be no new material assigned to students. As stated last week, I will simply be doing report cards and still accepting any work that comes my way!
However, to show my gratitude and love for the wonderful year we had together, I would like to make up for a project I usually do while in school! Every year since I began teaching 15 years ago, I have given my students a “reading license.” We have always had a little reading license ceremony and families have always come to help celebrate our hard work and huge accomplishment. Learning our letters/sounds, writing names and stories and reading books is no small feat. This is something I always look forward to and feel sad that we will not have one this year. So, I will come to you 🙂
Have you heard of local photographers coming to homes and taking “Porch Pictures?” I would LOVE to come to you next week and shoot a mini family photo(s) and drop off a little something from me as well as their “reading license.” No pressure! If you don’t want your pictures taken you do NOT need to sign up. I will simply just drop off your child’s license and gift on the porch during my travels next week.
I know you are all SO busy and working so please take a look at the sign up spreadsheet below and choose a date/time (just simple write your child’s name in a slot) if your child/children or whole family is available for a mini porch photo shoot! I can spend up to 30min. at each location and have left myself 10 minutes to travel to the next home. If your schedule does not fit into these dates/time frames please reach out to me via text 1(313)580-8622 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make different arrangements 🙂 You are all very special and I am really looking forward to it! Thank you again for all the beautiful cards, flowers and gifts you left for me last week and for how you have supported our classroom/remote classroom this year. I will love and cherish my memories with your little ones always.
Have a wonderful weekend and final week!
Mrs. Ross 🙂
