We are into our final week of the 2017-2018 school year, with only 3 days left to go. I know that everyone is looking forward to summer, but it is bittersweet to wrap up the year with this wonderful group of students. I am so fortunate to work in this supportive community. I will be thinking of this class fondly over the summer, and look forward to seeing each of you in August as third graders and third grade parents!


  • If you signed up to bring something for our grade level party, please send it with your child on Tuesday or Wednesday morning. (Party is Wednesday.)  Thank you so much for donating and making this party possible!

  • Here are a couple of things about the report cards coming home on Thursday to help you understand your student’s progress: Students are scored on a scale of 1-3. If your student scored a 1, I recommend reviewing frequently the skills that your child struggles with. Reading aloud will help build fluency for those who need to improve.


  • We do not have homework this week.


  • There are local summer reading programs enclosed in the homework folder. 


  • We need to have all library books turned in. Also, we still have some outstanding balances in the lunch room. I cannot send a report card home on Thursday if your student owes money on either account.

All medication and inhalers must be picked up from the school office by the last day of school, as none will be kept over summer vacation.  A medical authorization form is valid only for the school year during which it is submitted, therefore, if your child will need to take medication at school during the next school year, you will need to submit a new form from your child's doctor (Authorization to Administer Medication During School Hours) before the first day of school.


If you have read this final newsletter of the year, please have a fantastic summer!!!
