I cannot believe that the end of the school year is approaching so quickly. It has been a great year that has been filled with much joy and happiness. We have covered a lot of material and have gotten the opportunity to participate in many fun experiences: solar eclipse, science day, Henry Doorly Zoo, NE State Capitol, Hour of Code, Dr. Seuss - Bring a Friend to Breakfast, School Carnival and so many more memorable moments.
As your child gets ready for this summer, they can rest assure that it will be a wonderful upcoming 2018-19 school year. They can look forward to meeting new friends, utilizing the computers and tablets in the classroom, and several exciting educational opportunities.
As your child moves to the next grade, there are some very important things that you can do this summer to help them with their education. Take the time to listen to your child read and make sure that they are reading each night for at least 15 minutes. Practice their math facts so that they will be ready for math. Encourage your child to write often. If you go on vacation this summer, then encourage your child to take a journal with them and write a little bit about their trip each day. This is a great way for a child to get their thoughts organized onto paper. Encourage good social skills, help them make good choices and order for themselves if you go out to eat. All of these things will help your child be prepared for the next school year.
It has been my pleasure working with your child this school year. Having your parental support was an essential part of the year. I would like to personally thank each and every one of the parents, grandparents, and other family members who have taken the time to volunteer in the classroom this year. Your dedication and support has not gone unnoticed.
Thanks again for a wonderful year. Have a fantastic summer.
