I want to express what a positive year I’ve had with your children, both in class and at a distance. I know it was disappointing for 5th graders not to be able to participate in the special End-of-Year events, but from what I can see they’ve handled it well. They’ve given me so many reasons to be proud. I’m amazed and thankful for their continued participation through the end of the school year, and I know they will make awesome middle schoolers.
Families may pick up student belongings in the bus loop on Monday and Tuesday, June 8 & 9, from 9-12 and 1-4.
You may also drop off any remaining school or teacher materials at this time. This includes Mrs. McGee’s reading group novels and classroom library books, safety patrols belts, scissors, calculators, etc. that may have been borrowed from a teacher. Please place these in a labeled plastic bag and drop them off when you collect your belongings. Thank you!
