    Hello families!

    We are in the final two and a half weeks of school! This has been a crazy year - not just for the students but for everyone. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and patience throughout the school year as we navigated a constantly changing environment and dealt with any number of issues, whether it was class sizes, learning models, technology issues, remote work, etc. I am proud of the students for their resiliency, their effort, and all they have accomplished, and have enjoyed being their teacher. I hope they leave our classroom with positive memories of 4th grade, and I hope you will encourage them to visit in the future.

    Students will be returning their school-issued laptops and any supplementary equipment (cords, case, charger) next week no later than Friday afternoon. Please make sure they are tracking down these items so we can make the turn-in process as smooth as possible. Also, any library books that still need to be returned should be brought to school this week if possible. If you are unable to return books by Friday, June 4th, please contact Mrs. Newman directly and let her know when you are able to do so. 

    Friday, June 4th is our Math MCAS. Please make sure that students get a good night’s rest, eat a good breakfast, and (if possible) they may want to bring two snacks to have some before starting the test and then again after all students are done.

    Monday, June 7th is an early release day for teacher professional development.

    Tuesday, June 8th is Field Day! Hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen are strongly advised. The raindate for Field Day would be Monday, June 14th. 

    Tuesday, June 15th is the last day of school, an early release day, and report cards will be available to view.

    That’s all from me! Please enjoy your summer, keep in touch, and may the Force be with you!
