2/3 HA Multiage
May 16, 2016
It is with mixed feelings that I write this last newsletter of the 2015-16 school year. While I am happy to see summer here, I am also quite saddened to see tenof my kiddos moving on.
I think we had a pretty great year. We learned so much about so many things…weather, Pioneers, states of matter, economics, the periodic table of elements, biomes, government, vocabulary, and tons of math skills, to name just a few. Students completed two projects – Pioneer Reports and Animal Investigation Projects – which were amazing! We also learned how to be a team and support one another. Students were kind, helpful, honest, and supportive of each other every day; and boy did we laugh and have fun! The Multiager game show was a big hit, as usual. AR achievements were fabulous this year, too. Everyone did an outstanding job. Our top three achievers this year were Gavin with over 447 points, Isabella with over 448 points, and Sarah with over 800 points (808.7 to be exact)! Way to go!!
I'm looking forward to seeing Quionn, Lacie, Isabella, Aiden H., Greg, Joshua, Ash, Katy, Aly, Emma, Aiden W., and Aubree grow even more next year. They will be the leaders and role models in our class, showing the new crop of multiagers "how it is."
And you have no idea just how much I will miss Sarah, Tyler D., Gray, Shayne, Gavin, Tyler M., Clay, Zeke, Hannah, and Seth. You are such great kids and I am so confident in you and your abilities. I know that your future is so, so bright. I will miss hearing your stories, your laughter, and your questions and answers each and every day. I wish you all the best and hope you will visit me often and tell me all about YOU.
We do still have a full, 5-day week of school with lots going on…

Class Movie – I will finish up this year’s class movie as soon as I’ve added in our last day photos. I will send a link to you via email with directions on how download the movie from Dropbox. Hope you enjoy our memories!!!
With that, I will sign off for the last time this year. Remind your kids to read and practice their multiplication facts this summer….not all the time, just once in a while.
I wish you all the happiest, safest, and "fun-est" of summers. Enjoy!!!
Love to you all,
