Dear Parents,

Our first three days of school were awesome. Your children are amazing and a pleasure to have in class. We had PE, Art, and Music specials and everyone enjoyed the specials classes. We learned some new songs, morning greetings, and started math and morning routines. Children were happy to be back. First year assessments were given in reading and sight words. They will be finished next week. All students did math and had spelling preliminary assessing. Mentor buddies were assigned and ad hoc groups were established. Friday afternoon we did the first five science experiments which included the three states of matter, mixtures, and suspensions. The children were captivated. We have the best class! Thank you, again, for allowing me to teach your precious children. We are most grateful and look forward to a wonderful year!
