Week 42- June 4th-June 8th

Dear Parents,

We hope everyone had a nice weekend.This is our last week of school. It was a pleasure getting to know your child throughout the year. We had a blast in first grade!

We understand that summer is a time to relax and have fun but at the same time it is important that your child spend some time reviewing academic skills to better prepare them for the second grade. We are giving each child a math packet and asking everyone to spend at least 10 minutes reading every day. Keeping a summer journal, for example, would allow your child to practice his/her writing skills. Watching English movies/television shows will help your child with his/her English skills.Your child will be out of school for nearly 8 weeks, reviewing reading, writing and math skills will help him/her get off to a great start.
Here are a few reminders that we would like all parents to make note of:
