Classroom Notes

Greetings!

We have arrived. We are officially heading into the last week of the school year. And what a year it
has been! Yesterday, we made a list of all the projects, activities, and trips that have taken place this year. It was an impressive list! We listed first grade buddies, poetry in the garden, creating eco-critters, creative dramatics, field trips around the city, Reed science, art night, and more! We had another busy and productive week that included illustrating our book of poetry, the Spring Music Concert, and the play we wrote as a class and are practicing together. My final (farewell) letter of the year will be posted next Thursday, but for now, I want to pass along some “last week of school” information.

Team 20 Theater:  Last week we wrote a play together. It is the story of a class who goes on a field trip to a museum and encounters a series of unusual exhibits including one that leads to some unexpected consequences. I won’t give away the ending. There will be two performances of “Page 72” for other Lewis classes, including our first grade buddies. Performance one will be on Wednesday, June 14th, at 9:30 and performance two will be that same day at 11:00. If you find yourself with some free time and want to take in a good show, please stop by! A splendid time is guaranteed for all! If you can’t make it in, please know that our play will be live-streamed through our Twitter feed, and video can be later found on our classroom blog.

In the afternoon on Wednesday, June 14th, we will dismantle most of the decorations in the room. A grocery sack would be very useful on Tuesday since room 20 is filled with a variety of kid-generated items. (Extra sacks are welcomed!) 

A reminder about the Family Breakfast on Friday, June 9th, from 8:15 to 9:00 in room 22. Please come by when you can. You can stay for the whole event or just come by for a bit. A list of breakfast items to bring and share for this buffet style breakfast was included with last week’s Classroom Notes. I am looking forward to this celebration and hope to see you there!

And as we head into the last week, I want to thank all of you for the support you have given to the kids of Team 20 and to me. Education is a cooperative venture between home and school. I am fortunate to work with such an outstanding group of families!
