Dear Students and Parents,

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a nice weekend!  I cannot believe it is the last few days of school! This is such a bitter sweet time for me.  I loved teaching your children this year.  I am sure I will be seeing them in the hallways and in the school yard.  I am so proud of all of their accomplishments and how hard they have worked!  I am going to miss them terribly!
We have a lot of fun and exciting things planned for the next couple of days!  
We are looking forward to seeing all of our VIPs for our annual Breakfast, Books and Bears! We are also looking forward to our special lunch day! 
-Your child should "DRESS UP!" (no flip flops)
-Girls- please do not wear pony tails.  We wear caps and it is difficult to get them to stay on their heads if their hair isn't down.
-Our class (when looking at the stage) sits on the LEFT side.
-Your child will be going home after the ceremony as this is their last day of school! 
Please practice your child's graduation lines with them each day.  It makes them feel much more comfortable on the stage when they know what they have to say!
Please do not forget to send in a water bottle with your child each day!

   **REMINDER!-When doing HW with your child, I am asking that you please be aware your child is using the writing lines correctly. I have noticed a lot of uppercase letters (we only use lowercase unless it is the first word of a sentence or a name!), backwards letters, and incorrect lines being used. Letters DO NOT FLOAT! We have been focusing a lot on lowercase letters and it is extremely important that they are able to recognize them as well as write them. Please also make sure that your child is not writing their letters from the "grass line" UP.  We have learned that letters all FALL matter what line they start on! 

**Some Information for You!**

-Please label your child's (1) HEALTHY MORNING SNACK with the letter "M" on it.    
-Please refrain from sending your child to school with peanut butter as we have a few children with severe allergies.
- Remind your child about the importance of staying safe in our classroom.  This means we keep our hands on our own bodies, we sit criss-cross applesauce, hands in our laps, and we raise our hand to leave our seats.  
- Remind them to ALWAYS ask for help.  
-Please practice writing their name (first and last) with only the first letters being uppercase letters.  
- When writing, please ONLY use pencil!  Unless the directions say to color, we ONLY write with pencil :) 
-Remember to have fun while learning!

This week in K-2:

We will be reviewing for the remainder of the year as well as introduce a few concepts they will be learning in 1st grade.  Please do not stop practicing number recognition and addition and subtraction with your child.  Reversals are normal, but the more they practice writing the numbers, the better they will be! They should also know that when writing numbers, they all touch the sky and grass lines!  As this math may be new to some of you, as well as the terminology, please do not hesitate to contact me if you find yourself, or your child confused in any way! I am here to help all of you!  

Stories of the Week: Summer Stories
Letter of the Week:
review (uppercase and lowercase)

Phonics Skill: we will continue reviewing all the phonics concepts we have learned all year!

**It is very important that you continue to practice phonics at home as well.**

    We will be talking about Summer Safety and Dolphins!   

  We will be learning about the Rosary! 

If you have any questions at any time, please do not hesitate to contact me!  E-mail is a great way to get in touch with me, but you can always call the main office and leave me a message.  I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Here's to a great year!
