A special thank you to a GREAT group of children and a fantastic school year.  I'm always amazed how much THEY can teach ME.:-) Once a Koala, always a Koala!

Memory books

Please make sure to check out the First Grade Memory Books headed your way.  Over the last few weeks your child has reflected on the past year and spent time writing and illustrating those memories. I hope you enjoy looking over their work.

Check out these Genius Hour projects!

Stratham Hill Park

We are looking forward to our end of the year celebration at Stratham Hill Park this Thursday morning.  Thank you for those of you who volunteered to chaperone at the park. I will be having some of you facilitate games and others as supervision throughout our play areas. Please check in with me when you arrive.

If you are not chaperoning and would like to stop by to join the fun, please drop in between 9:20 and 11:00.  

The first graders and teachers are planning on having a snack at school first thing and will leave SMS around 9:00.  We will hike our way to the park and are planning on arriving around 9:20.  Parents please meet us near the playground area at 9:20.  

Please dress appropriately for the weather.  Sneakers and water bottles are a must! Please apply sun block and bug spray at home before school.
