Have a great summer!

I will update Seesaw today or tomorrow with our final videos and pictures, but it's truly been a year to remember! I can't believe it's already over! Here is one of my favorite end-of-the-school-year clips to send you off....

No homework for Tuesday, June 11th

Field Day is tomorrow so make sure to wear sunscreen and prepare for an active day in the sun!

** Today I sent home more folders and student work, along with all of the Bridges Math Workbooks and the Reader's and Writer's Journal. We did many of the activities online or in groups (or I printed out master copies), so the workbooks have plenty of activities and pages that can be done over the summer to stay sharp. This is especially true for math, and the Home Connection books are great to help students retain their math skills and make sure they are ready to go once 5th grade begins in August!

** I also sent home the 2018 Book Match List for any students looking for great books to read over the summer.
