Mrs. Long's Class
May 25, 2017
Scott County School District 2 is trying to better understand what our parents want for their child’s education and how we can continue to provide a brighter future for your student.
If you have not already, please fill out this quick survey.
We appreciate your time and input!
Let the count down begin:
This will be the last newsletter for this school year. We have officially started the count down to summer... With only 3 days left of school, each day will go by quickly! I have enjoyed working with your child this year and watching them grow. As exhausting as it can be at times, there is no better job than being a teacher. I am honored that you trusted me to take care of your precious children 180 days out of the year. I can't help but feel as though I play a small part in their future. I am so proud of the progress they have made this school year. I will miss them dearly as they move on. I hope each of you have an enjoyable and safe summer!
We spent this week reviewing skills and wrapping up all of our testing!
Next week we have a FUN filled week! We will have our kindergarten graduation ceremony, spend time reminiscing about our favorite things in kindergarten, pack and clean up the classroom, and have our end of the year field trip to the movies!
All assessments have been completed! A final checklist was sent home this week. Report cards will be mailed after the last day of school. Please continue to work with your child over the summer. This will keep the skills they have learned fresh in their minds, and help to get them started off on the right foot in first grade!
Your child has been introduced to the program Reading Eggs. We will be using Reading Eggs regularly throughout the school year. A paper has been sent home with your child's login and password information. *(Login: first name, middle initial, last name. Password: is first name and lunch number) There is also is a program called Mathseeds. Mathseeds will give your child extra math skill practice. The login is the same! If you have internet access, you are encouraged to use these programs at home! Just go to www.readingeggs.com

Each regular Box Top clipping is worth 10 cents, and those can add up quickly when we all turn them in! Please put your labels in a baggie or an envelop, label them "Long" and send them in.... Thanks so much!!
