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! A few days ago, 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, the Little Free Library, field trips around the city, our salmon study, art night, and more! We had another busy and productive week that included next steps with our poetry project, field day, the Spring Book Drive, and the play we wrote as a class and are practicing together. My final (farewell) letter of the year will be posted next week on Friday, but for now, I want to pass along some “last week of school” information.

Team 20 Theater:  We wrote a play together as a team. It is the story of a news report and features a return of some favorite characters from prior plays, including FedExians (FedEx aliens), and a plot featuring more than a few surprising twists and turns. I won’t give away the ending. 

There will be two performances of “Team 20 News and the News Story Shenanigans” for other Lewis classes, including our first grade buddies. Performance one will be on Wednesday, June 6th, at 9:40 and performance two will be Thursday, June 7th, at 9:40. 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 Thursday, June 7th, we will dismantle most of the decorations in the room. A grocery sack would be very useful on Thursday since room 20 is filled with a variety of kid-generated items. (Extra sacks are welcomed!) 

A reminder about the Fourth Grade Family Breakfast on Friday, June 8th, 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! 

Thanks,
Mark
