It is hard to believe we are here, the last week of school. Your children, and therefore you, have taught me much this year. This chatty group of kids designed and built amazing arcade games, ventured out and learned about their community, practiced and performed a play, mastered subtraction with regrouping and multiplication, and learned to function as a group. I think we’ve all felt the tension that exists between maintaining a strong commitment to academic work, while also cultivating strong community ties. Whether we’ve dug deep to stay focused on the task, or dropped everything to console a friend, we are a classroom community.
This could never happen if it weren’t for your belief and trust in me. Allowing the year to unfold, believing in the system of school, and letting your children form their own relationships with the adults on campus takes a certain leap of faith. I understand that, and truly appreciate it. Believe me, your children have provided me with many moments of laughter! They are funny, smart, and see the world with a child’s innocence. They have taught me much, but it is almost time to let them go forth and teach others!
Some Last Week Reminders:
