Cardiff School District

Inspiring a love of learning

June 12, 2017





Dear Parents,


Well, this is it, the last hurrah before summer vacation. This year has gone so quickly. The little kids who walked through the door last August have grown and learned in many ways. Thank you for sharing your child with me this year!


Thank you, also, for your support throughout the year—volunteering for field trips, science lab, Boo-by-the-Sea, Ice Cream Social; helping and encouraging your child with his/her homework and learning; and participating in school events. This is what makes Cardiff great!


I hope you enjoyed the ocean sing-a-long and parade. All the kids did such a great job and our class really enjoyed their duck butt hats!


The class has done some amazing work with mental math this year. While the lessons are getting quite challenging, the kids are persevering and solving the problems. I’m very proud and impressed with their work.


I hope your child has told you about our bridge design work and how they’ve learned to strengthen each bridge by studying what happened as each successive attempt began to fail.  Great problem solving and teamwork!


Please be sure that your child brings his/her backpack on Thursday and Friday to carry home all their things.


Dates to keep in mind:

·      Tues., 6/13, book exchange

·      Thurs., 6/15, class field day and end-of-year party, 10:15-12:15

·      Fri., 6/16, last day of school, 12:15 dismissal


Have a great week and enjoy your summer vacation. I hope you have set aside some fun family time. Please help your child explore math concepts through real-life situations, take time to look at the night sky, read and share a variety of books, and write for real reasons.  Thank you for a great year!
