I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weather we are having! I want to thank you for a wonderful Teacher Appreciation week. Thank you for the big basket of goodies. You are so kind and thoughtful to think of me.
This next week is Student Appreciation week. Everyday students will have the option of dressing up, as well as receiving a small gift. Next week is also Career Day. Students will have the opportunity to choose 2-3 speakers that are in different career fields. This week we will also be completing our End of the Year writing assessment and reading assessment. Students will also have a chance to turn in their missing or incomplete work. Students will receive their grade cards and iReady reading scores on the last day of school. I hope you all have a great week!
