News from Room 15

O2K Class

May 9-19, 2016

Dear Families,

It's hard to believe that the school year is coming to an end in two weeks! I want to thank all of you for a wonderful year and wish you a safe and happy summer. Our last unit of the year will be about summer. Some activity highlights will be sorting beach items, painting fish, talking about what we hope to do during summer, and patterning sun rays. We do have a few special activities coming up this week, so be sure to checkout the Duckling Dates and information below.

  • Discovery with Dads has a huge success! I hope all the "dads" that were able to join us had a great time.
  • Please RSVP for graduation on May 18th. Thank you!

Have a great week!

~ Ms. Jackie, Mrs. Joyce, Mrs. Patrice
