Waving Goodbye to 2015
Thank you for a fabulous finale!
The year 2015 ended with a flourish of fantastic opportunities to learn and grow, both academically and as a classroom community. I am very proud of this group of fifth graders. They show compassion for each other, as well as, a determined work ethic toward their studies. The GRIT skits that they wrote and performed for 1st and 3rd grade went off without a hitch, and they created positive character trait Secret Scherr posters for a classmate using Office 365. Thank you for supporting them at home! Please enjoy the following pictures and snippets. I've also included a sneak peak of what will be next in 2016 :)
