    We had a busy but productive 1st three days of 1st grade, and got started on developing our classroom routines.  I am looking forward to an awesome year of learning and growing.

    Here are some notes to get us started as we enter the new month of September.

    • If you have not returned your data, bio, dismissal and field trip forms please do so asap.  Thank you.
    • Remember that all Tuesdays are "Early Release" and that your child will be released from school on Tuesday at 1:45pm.  
    • Picture Day is this Thursday, September 6th.  Practice those smiles!!!!!!!
    • Please remember to send sneakers on Wednesdays and Fridays as we have PE.  
    • Our Learning Center day is Thursday, but children may return and get books any day as we have time set aside for this each day.

    Hope you have a great Labor Day holiday!

    Hope all you Room 6 families have had a great summer of fun, relaxation, and lots of reading!  I had a very busy summer, spending 3 weeks with my grandson Leo, and family visiting Italy!  It was an amazing experience.  I can't wait to share it with you, and hear all about what you did during your summer adventures!  

    Thanks to all the families that were able to stop by and say hello during Monday's Open Visitation.  It was great to reconnect.  

    Now I am looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow morning at 7:45 for our first day of 1st grade!

    It was awesome to meet all of next year's 1st graders last week!  Remember your summer homework, to say hello to each other whenever you see each other during the summer.  Relax, enjoy, and have a great summer!
