Other News and Information

  • Laura will be putting an end-of-year checklist in teacher's mailboxes this week. Please make sure you've checked everything off and returned the form to Laura before you leave at the end of the week! This includes leaving your summer contact info on this form. Thank you for all of the extra details that you are paying attention to in order to leave classrooms, offices, and other spaces ready for summer cleaning!

  • Report card grades and comments are due by 4 pm on June 24. If you are finished before that time, please email MInh and Analisa to let us know. As always, we will be reviewing report cards before they are printed and mailed. If you finish your report cards after the last day of school, please make sure that we know how to get ahold of you in case there are any final edits that need to be made.

  • Don't forget that your shiny laptops need to be updated over the summer, and all other laptops need to be returned to Susan in the library this week. See the upcoming dates list for more details.

  • Here's what to expect on our last-day assembly:
    1. Welcome, get settled and flag salute
    2. song - You Can Count On Me
    3. End of year slide show
    4. Honoring our 5th graders - a few words, and the 5th graders' baby pic slide show
    5. Fifth Graders will then be called to the stage in order. Graham, LInda, Analisa, Minh, and Dan will be up there to greet them. We will not have all staff line up, BUT if you feel especially connected to this cohort, you may join us up front. After all 5th graders are sitting on the front of the stage, we'll call teachers to form a tunnel down the middle aisle, and we'll cheer our 5th graders out through the tunnel, through the gym, and out to recess.
    6. Analisa will dismiss everyone else to recess. Please hand out yearbooks and pens/pencils at that time.

Thank you, Cordata family! I am a better educator for having worked with all of you! Have a wonderful summer!
