Friday, May 24th: Last Day of School-10 am dismissal and No Extended Day
May 20, 2018
Dear 2B Families,
Our annual Second Grade Readers Café was a hit. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to join us. My students were so excited to share their poems and stories with you and to have you hear how much they have all improved as readers. I hope you all had as much fun as the kids and I did!
I still can't believe that it's our last week of school. I'm going to miss each one of my kiddos this summer, but I know their time with me has come to an end and now it's time for them to wow their third grade teachers. They've worked hard this school year in their academics, work ethic, responsibility and showing their kindness and love to one another. I couldn't ask for anything more.
Your child will be coming home with school supplies throughout the week. Their final supplies will be going home on Thursday. Please make sure that your child does not bring a back pack on Friday. They will be dismissed directly after our REAL awards assembly.
Our end of the year party is scheduled for this Thursday. We will kick off our party with a class pizza lunch. Please make sure to cancel your child's hot lunch order.
We invite you to join us for our end of the school year mass on Friday. Mass will begin at 8:30 and follow with our REAL awards. Dismissal will immediately follow at 10am. Please make note that there is no extended day on the final day of school. Friday's mass will take the place of Wednesday's regularly scheduled mass.
I want to take the time to thank you for your support this school year. At the beginning of each year, I challenge my students to become more independent, develop a strong work ethic, be kind and most of all have fun learning. There may have been some bumps in the road, but each one of my students has lived up to the challenge. I am so thankful that I was able to teach these 24 amazing boys and girls. They will always hold a place in my heart and I will cherish the memories that we've made together.
To my second graders, remember to practice your multiplication facts and read this summer. Begin your third grade year showing your third grade teachers what amazing hard working students you are. I'm proud of you all and wish you a safe and fun summer! I'll be thinking of you.
Dear Saint John XXIII families,
It is with bittersweet sentiment that I tell you that our nurse, Bianca Grandys has a wonderful employment opportunity outside of our school community. Unfortunately, that means that her time here will be ending soon as her last day will be May 11th.
We are currently working on staffing the nurse’s office the last two weeks of school.
We wish Bianca well on her next endeavor.
