Mrs. Santiago's Campground

End Of The Year Newsletter

I cannot believe that it is already time to say goodbye to my 29 campers! I just want to say THANK YOU for allowing me to be your child's teacher. It has been an absolute pleasure. I am certain that each and every one of your children have an outstanding future ahead of them. I hope that they will come back and share all of their exciting adventures and successes that come their way. If there is ever anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to email me. I hope all of your families have a wonderful summer!

Bridge Building

Students were put in partners and were given 200 popsicle sticks, a bottle of glue, and were required to build a bridge at least 10-12 inches long. They were guided to have some sort of pattern, as we tested them with reading books on the bridges to see whose could last with the most weight! We had three groups who had 30 reading books on their bridge and didn't break!

Completing nightly homework is essential to the recall and continual progress for your child. As noted in the beginning of the year, your student's homework should not exceed a 40 minute maximum per evening, with the exception of studying for quizzes, tests or completing projects. All assigned homework is due the following school day.

Late Work: Late work is accepted. There is a one time, 20% deduction for each late assignment. As previously discussed with the students, turning in a late assignment is much more beneficial to the student's grade than turning in nothing at all. All late work should be promptly completed and turned in to the teacher.
