YOU ARE THE BEST!!!
Today was a fun day! It's so nice to be able to have time to see the kids just be kids! They had such a good time at Altitude today! Thanks to all of the parents who helped with the party! From the paper products to the pizza, to carpooling kids, to the event itself, THANK YOU!!! You have been the most generous group of parents!! You all have done so much for me already that the sweet card and cash and the gifts today was very unexpected!! I am so grateful! The cash will definately go towards my classroom wishlist!
I really do love all of your kids and I am so proud of each and every one of them.
I care about them and think about them like they are my own! Thank you for allowing me to be their school mom this year!
You all have been so supportive and I will always be here for you as well!
Crowson and I are getting their summer packs ready. Each student will get a ziplock bag on Wednesday with their memory book, summer learning pack, report card and ITBS scores.
If your child will not be at school, these packs will be in the office with Ms. Lynn on Wednesday.
Please encourage your child to complete the summer packs. We do not want them to loose any learning we did this year! Students can return the completed pack to me on the first day of 2nd grade for their name to be put into a drawing for a prize. I want it to be a prize that they want to work towards. The kids voted for their ideal prize from the following options: 1) a Kindle Fire tablet 2) an iPod shuffle 3) a science kit 4) other.
The kids really felt strong about what they did NOT want! So, to encourage everyone to complete the pack, I am going to let the winner pick what they want by giving them a $50 gift card! I will let one of my new first graders pull a name from the entries!! You work your magic by knowing what it is that they want and will work for!
The pack has to be completed in their best work!
Good luck and have a wonderful summer!!
