I can’t believe we only have a few more days to go!  I am soaking up every minute with your amazing children!  All work is due this Friday, May 20th.  I will accept work until the last day of school, however, I would love to do some fun activities on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

Monday we are having a game day.  Please allow your child to bring in their favorite game and a snack to share with the class.  We will also clean out desks and cubbies.

Tuesday and Wednesday the students will be dismissed at 12:30.

On Wednesday, the students who ride the bus will not be allowed to bring anything home.  No backpacks or lunch boxes.  If your child normally brings their lunch, pack it in all disposable packaging.

Thank you for all of your support this year!!!




Can you believe it’s time turn in our books for the summer?  All books are due to the Media Center tomorrow.  Thank you for your help!

The summer is a fantastic time to visit your local library!  Don’t forget to participate in the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge!

I am honored and humbled by all of the gracious teacher appreciation gifts.  You are all so sweet to think of me.  I am enjoying the beautiful bouquet of flowers and your notes warmed my heart!  I loved opening the beautiful gift basket from the class.  The true gift is being able to teach all your wonderful children each day.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  You are truly the best!

We had a wonderful career day!  Thank you to Dr. McNealey for coordinating all of the wonderful speakers.  We would like to send a very special thank you to Mr. Zych, Mr. Dikko, Mr. Najewski, and Officer Cole for inspiring our class!  We enjoyed learning about your occupations and appreciate your words of encouragement.

Mr. Dikko shared a wonderful website where the students have the ability to build virtual buildings.  You can access the website through the following link.



Dear Parents,

This Friday, the students will have a BYOD day for stellar behavior.  At the beginning of the third nine weeks, the students chose to have a BYOD day for individuals who have four checks or less on their Friday folder for the grading period.  I will be reminding the students who qualified for this reward.  Students who are not able to bring in a device, be allowed on the classroom computers.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Dear Parents,

We are going to have BYOD days on Tuesday and Thursday of this week.  We are starting our research on our animals.  The students will be accessing Mackinvia to use databases to find out more information on their animals.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you for your support!


Dear Parents,

The students have been working SO hard on the Milestone Assessments.  I am SUPER proud of them!!!  I will send Friday Folders home on Tuesday, April 19th.  Thank you for your understanding.  One more day of testing!!!
