This is a secret (from the children)
Our class has been earning pom poms to by synergizing together to fill our proactive pom pom jar. When we reach our goal we always have a reward. We have earned a LEGO Party, Stuffed Animal Day, Extra Recess, Chalk Party, to name a few. For our last one I would like to do something a little different. Mrs. Campbell has given us permission to walk the 2 blocks to the park on Lincoln Avenue. It is filled with lots of wonderful toys for the children to play on. I have not shared this with the children because we can only do it if I have enough parent help to go with us for safety reasons. I will need at least 5 parents (more is even better). Please contact me if you are interested. If I get enough parent chaperones I will then share what our activity is with the children.
We will be going on Wednesday, May 16th
from 1:00 – 2:45 pm.

I will be sending text messages and emails to all students that still have books out. They will not be invited to the party Please send all books Monday and pay all existing fines so your student will be able to attend the party on Wednesday.

Congratulations to Amelia Lundell!
She was chosen as our 7 Habit leader for the month. Amelia knows balance feels best! She loves to try new things. She wrestles, snow skis, plays soccer, and loves to read. She loves swimming, riding her bike, practicing her spelling words and this summer she is learning to water ski.
She is a great example to our class.
We got a very exciting visit this week. Our school was chosen to have a special reward because our students have been so good at completing our computer learning program called WATERFORD. Rusty the raccoon is the mascot of the program. He actually got to come to our classroom to celebrate our students. We danced with him and each of us gave him a high five.
Thank you for the precious gift of sharing your children with me this year! This year has been an adventure I will never forget! I have loved it and loved seeing what great heights your tiny humans have achieved. We can do hard things! They have become readers, writers, mathematicians, and know what it means to be proactive! Have a fabulous summer with your kiddo! I have grown to love them so much and hope they come give me lots of hugs next year.
Still love my job!
