Mrs. Myerson's Classroom News - Week of May 9th

A Note from Mrs. Myerson

This week is another review week, which is heavy with unit assessments. The students will be working VERY hard this week, and I know they are always up to the challenge. I continue to see positive progress from them and as we finish out the year, I am so proud of how far they have come!

This week our Cape May Zoo Field Trip permission slip will be coming home. We do need chaperones, and will pick on a first come, first serve basis. Please complete the permission slip and turn in as soon as possible!

Meet Mrs. Myerson!

I am a wife, and a "mommy" to my lab-pit, Chance. I love to read, dance, sing, be creative, organize, decorate, and spend time with my family and friends! I am an 8th year teacher in Vineland, and truly passionate about my job! Making learning fun for my students and sparking their curiosity is what I'm all about.
