Updates and announcements
Can you believe the year is almost over? Our students are coming up to a well-deserved summer break. It has been an honor teaching our students this year. At our end of the year party, students will get a more eloquent sending off letter from all of the 5th grade teachers.
Wednesday is the 5th grade Promotion. Students should be in the gym at 5:15 and the ceremony will start at 5:30.
Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday are half days.
Our end of the year party is Friday!
Just a reminder that I will not be at school on Thursday and Friday. I will be back in Montana for my brother’s graduation. I am so excited to bring them back to Arizona with me next week and celebrate my brother’s new adulthood, my birthday, and mourning the departure of my mid-twenties.
