What's New at Hemlock this week
Week of June 8
message from the principal - ms. bellovin
Can you believe that we have reached the last full week of school? What a different school year we had! The beginning was just like any other but since March 15, we have been doing school differently. I know that I have missed seeing you each and every day. You have the best smiles!!!
This week, Mr. Caparella has planned a Virtual Field Day! We weren't able to have our usual picnic so he prepared some fun things for you to do at home with your family. The teachers want to make sure you have lots of fun and plenty of time to play. They have decided to give you a little bit less work on Seesaw. But remember, you should still read every single day! Keep building those reading muscles. We always see at Hemlock after exercise: Brains and body are ready to work!
My morning announcements will be some virtual field day activities, too! I can't wait to show you what I came up with for you to play. It has been so much fun getting your videos and photos when you try my activities. Thank you!
Next week, we have a big event happening! Our last day of school is June 16. On June 15, at 9:00, we invite you for a drive by at Hemlock! All the teachers will be there to wave hello and wish you a great summer! Sort of like we usually do with the buses. But this time you will be in your cars. More details will be sent at the end of the week.
Have a lovely day.
All the best,

This week we will engage in a fun bubble blowing activity. Blowing bubbles is a fun way to practice deep breathing, self control, and in this exercise we also include self-love and gratitude statements. A recipe for bubble solution is also included.
