In Pursuit of Knowledge
June 2016, Final Edition
Farewell to Our Fourth Graders
I must mention our participation in the WordMasters Challenge, a national vocabulary and critical thinking competition. We had five students receive "Honorable Mention" for finishing among the top 10% of all competitors at our grade level and two students receive "High Honors" for finishing among the top 2%. Special recognition also goes to Ohana Miura for achieving the high score for our class!
Congratulations to the following students on your AWESOME accomplishment:
HIGH HONORSHenry Harris
HONORABLE MENTION:Freddy Cycholl
Parents, it is my hope our participation in this competition allowed your students to add many new words to their working vocabularies and make strides in their ability to think critically and analytically.
I will miss this working with this great group of students. Please keep me informed of their progress as I know great adventures are in the future for them all!
The Pursuit Continues...

I'm pleased to report that planning is already underway for next school year! I'm working to reshape the Pursuit program to better meet the needs of your students with our new schedule. Be on the look-out for information coming home in August!
I hope that everyone has a great summer and I'll be looking forward to meeting again in September!
