Saying Goodbye

Miss Trostle, our beloved student teacher is leaving us next week. She will be officially graduating and hopefully finding a teaching position in a local school district. She has been with us since the beginning of the year, and, the students have built a strong connection with her. I will be having a goodbye/graduation party with her with the kids.

I will be putting together a basket of teaching supplies for her future classroom and I’m looking for any parents interested in donating items to contribute. Items such as sticky notes, expo markers, colored pens for corrections, stickers, stamps, ect. are things that I am looking for. I am also going to collect money to put together to an ACMOORE gift card for her.

If you are interested in sending items in, please do so by MONDAY MAY 2nd. I will put the basket together on Tuesday. Please send any items in, in  a bag so she doesn’t suspect anything.

Thank you in advance for your support and help. I’m hoping to make her send off special. 🙂

Looking Ahead into the next two weeks…..

Now that we are back to the grind, we have so much to look forward to for the month of May.
