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
Dates to keep in mind:
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!
