Note From Teachers
I cannot believe that the end of the school year is approaching so quickly. It has been a great year that has been filled with much joy and happiness. We have covered a lot of material and have gotten the opportunity to participate in many fun projects. We were lucky enough to go to the Dallas Children's Theater. Today’s technology allowed the students to go on virtual filed trips and reinforce learning through apps. We also started to develop the skills needed for 4th grade.
As your child gets ready for 4th grade this summer, they can rest assure that it will be a wonderful upcoming school year. They can look forward to meeting new friends, learning how to play the recorder, utilizing the computers in the classroom, and going on an exciting school field trip.
As your child moves from 3rd to 4th grade, there are some very important things that you can do this summer to help them succeed. Take the time to listen to your child read and make sure that they are reading each night for at least 20 minutes. Practice their math facts so that they will be ready for 4th-grade math. Encourage your child to write often. If you go on vacation this summer, then encourage your child to take a journal with them and write a little bit about their trip each day. This is a great way for a child to get their thoughts organized onto paper. Encourage good social skills and help them make good choices and order for themselves if you go out to eat. All of these things will help your child lead to big successes the next school year.
It has been my pleasure getting to know your child this school year. Having your parental support was an essential part of the year. I would like to personally thank each and every one of the parents, grandparents, and other family members who have taken the time to volunteer in the classroom this year. Your dedication and support has not gone unnoticed.
Thanks again for a wonderful year. Have a fantastic summer.
