A Note From Mrs. Waters

The week ended hard with the sad news that Robert (Crew) Carroll, a grade 5 teacher, passed away. I have spent much of the weekend being a support to his wife, Anne (a first grade teacher) .

With only 2 more weeks of school left, there will not be homework for the rest of the year. I still encourage students to read every night. There is also a great math app, called Math Doodles, which will be helpful for students to practice over the summer.

Next weeks ABC countdown:

Sunday: Quiet Day

Monday: Reading in the 1st Grade Hallway

Tuesday: Stuffed Animal (students may bring one small stuffed animal to school)

Wednesday: T-Shirt (bring an old t-shirt to school for friends to sign)

Thursday: Upon a Day (students dress up as a fairy tale character)
