June 5 Reminders

***I can’t believe this school year is already over!  It feels like just yesterday I made 21 new friends as they walked through my classroom door back in August.  We have made so many memories over the course of the school year, and I will forever cherish my time with this class.  Thank you to all of the parents and families for your constant support and generosity this year!  I could not have done my job without amazing people like you supporting our classroom along the way!  If you ever need anything in the future, please don’t hesitate to contact me!  I hope you all have a fantastic summer!  I look forward to seeing the (now) 4th graders when they return to school in August!
