Welcome to Summer

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far.  Just a few reminders to take with you over summer.  Please keep reading.  I have started a summer reading blog on Edomdo for kids to share what they have been reading this summer.  Please keep practicing math facts especially if you did not have them mastered by the end of the year.  This skill is so important in all areas of math. 

If you are interested in any tutoring over the summer, please let me know.  I would love to help you out and keep your child on the right path this summer.

***Birthday Treats***

Our classroom is soy and peanut-free this year. If you plan to send birthday treats, I would like to suggest non-food items. I will have a list of possible food items if you are interested that can be brought safely into the classroom. Thanks for your cooperation in keeping our class safe.
