Younger Kids News
It is bittersweet to be writing this final Monday Note to all of you. As our interactions with our students begin to change to our memories of this school year we know that they will be fond ones. The final week of school is an important time for us to give closure to our fabulous year with a mix of academic presentations and fun events.
We are always amazed, when looking back, at how and where our students began the year and how and where they end it. The culmination of their academic growth will be presented to you in several ways this week.
- First on the agenda is the Spring Program happening this evening at Griffin Concert Hall. We hope that you all can attend. There is more information for you about this evening included in the school-wide email that Tina sent over the weekend.
- Tomorrow morning, Tuesday, we will have our Author’s Celebration from 8:00 – 9:00 in your child’s classroom. Please come for breakfast treats and amazing student work!
- On Thursday, final Report Cards will be sent out to you detailing the areas of growth we have seen in your child.
As mentioned, however, this week is not just about reviewing the growth of our students, it is also about fun! Wednesday is going to be jammed packed with special treats for our students. During the morning, the Younger Kids will be gathering for one last level-wide community event as we watch the hit movie Coco together. In the afternoon on Wednesday we will meet up on the playground with everyone in the school to enjoy all the fun of Field Day! Wednesday is sure to be a blast for our kids!
Another task that will be worked on throughout the week will be cleaning up the classroom. We will be sending things home throughout the week with our kids so this is a great week to ensure that your child has a backpack or bag here at school.
On Friday, our year will conclude with a half day and a celebration for our Fifth Grade students. We will be gathering in the commons to send them off with a bang and then will enjoy a special treat out on the playground for our last recess of the year. The day will end before lunch time at 11:30 and there is not aftercare on this day.
Once again, we want to thank you all for being a huge part of a terrific year at a school that we think is a pretty magical place. We hope that your summers are safe and full of fun and that we see your faces in and around Rivendell once again in the fall.
Have a super Summer!
