Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the kind words and gifts you sent in for our last days in school. It truly was a blessing for me to work with each of your children and have your support from home! On behalf of Mrs. Neff and Mrs. Graver, they thank all of you for your kind words and gifts as well.
Today as of 1:00 I am now on summer vacation, but let’s face it, teachers don’t really take off all summer. We continue to plan, worry, and try to help our students. So here are some things you can do this summer when the “I’m bored” hits your household.
Work on the packets that were made for your child. There are reading, writing, and letter activities for them to complete.
