What is going on?
I give you back your children, the same children you confidently entrusted to my care last fall. I give them back pounds heavier, inches taller, months wiser, more responsible, and more mature than they were then. Although they would of attained this growth in spite of me, it has been my happy privilege to watch their personality unfold day by day and marvel at this splendid miracle of development, each new success, each new expansion of itself. I give them back reluctantly for having spent nine months together in the narrow confines of a classroom, we have grown closer, have become a part of each other and we shall retain a little of each other.
Ten years from now if we met on the street, your children and I, a light will spring to our eyes, a smile to our lips, and we shall feel a bond of understanding once more, this bond we feel today. We lived, loved, played, studied, learned, and enriched our lives together this year. I wish it could go on forever, but give them back I must. Take care of them for they are precious.
Remember that I shall always be interested in your children whoever they become. Their joys and sorrows I’ll be happy to share. Please call me if there is anything further I can ever do for them.
This and that...
2nd grade would like to have Student Appreciation Week the last full week of school (May 20 - May 23) to honor the wonderful students that fill our rooms.
We thought it would be exciting if we could do several activities that would make our last week together fun and memorable!
Here’s our schedule to put on the fridge:
Monday, May 20: Hats off to a great year! Wear your favorite hat (or crazy hair) and bring a Board Game (non-electronic). *All games must have child’s name visible to ensure each game goes home with to person who brought it.
Tuesday, May 21: Escape to a world of reading!! Wear your pajamas! You can bring a blanket, a small pillow, and a stuffed animal to enjoy a day of reading in our room! Don’t forget tennis shoes for recess. *Bring your yearbooks or memory books today to collect signatures from all your friends!* (Don’t have a yearbook or memory book? We’ll make one in class)
Wednesday, May 22: Party Day! & Bubbles, Oh MY! Party at 8:45-9:10 in the morning and then bubble day in the afternoon! It doesn’t get better than that. Bring your bubbles and bubble toys – I’ll bring the bubble gum!!
Thursday, May 23: Let’s pop into summer! Fun Friday and a movie in the afternoon! I’ll provide the popcorn! (We will be going outside to watch 5th grade’s Flugtag in the morning so bring your sunglasses and a beach towel!)
