to making the best of our afternoon, despite the weather, and having a great time at fun stations in place of our traditional Field Day last Friday. 

Well here we are! Our last couple of days! We have had so much fun this year in preschool. I can't believe how fast the year came to an end! We have learned so many fun things. This group is by far my best rhymers! They are always trying to rhyme words! That will help them become great readers and writers. Thank you all for a great year and for sharing your child with me. I am going to miss them this summer! For my 12 moving on to Kindergarten, I know you will do well! You are all stars. Have the BEST SUMMER! - Miss Stacie

I can't believe the 2021-2022 school year is wrapping up this week. I know each set of students brings new adventures, but these four students will always hold a huge spot in my heart. Your children are the students that made me a teacher, and I will cherish this school year forever. We have laughed, loved, and learned so much! I hope you all have a wonderful summer! For the next few days, we will be focusing on reviewing and reading. - Mrs. Stewart

Can you believe this is the last week of the school year? This week we will be doing some fun review activities and wrapping up our year. Teaching this group of kids has been a great time, and I love them all. Please remember to continue practicing math facts throughout the summer as well as continuing your reading. I plan to send home a practice packet for the summer so the kids can continue to practice what we’ve been working on in class. I hope everyone has a great summer! - Mrs. Hird

As we round up the end of this year, our class will still be working on math facts this week. I have some fun activities planned as well. My wish for each student at the end of this year is that they all enjoy their time off this summer and be ready to come back excited and ready to learn next year! It's been a joy to have each and every one of them in my class this year! Have a great summer! – Mrs. Cooper

Our class will be completing some simple Science experiments tomorrow, so if you are able to donate a couple items for this it would be appreciated! 5th and 6th graders have met the requirements for my "100 Book Challenge" that I gave them at the beginning of the school year. The final total was 101 books and I am super proud of my students for their efforts! Today we are celebrating with games, donuts, a movie, and popcorn. I am giving students a list from Scholastic for a "Summer Reading Challenge". Please try to visit your local library and keep reading this summer. See you next year! - Mrs. Foster
