June News

I can’t believe that our school year is in its final month! It has been such a busy time that it really has not seemed that we have been working together for nine months already! This is a brief message to give everyone a quick glance at our June activities.
I would like to thank all the parents for sharing your children with me this year. They are a wonderful group of children! I have enjoyed teaching AND learning with them this year; it has been an incredible journey. They have blossomed into readers, researchers, and responsible Forestview citizens. It has been a joy and privilege to be their Grade One teacher.

I want to encourage all of you to continue to read, write, and mathematize over the summer months! We have come so far this year, and it is important to keep our skills sharp during the summer hiatus. I will be sending home a summer newsletter on the last day of school with some suggestions for helping your child “keep sharp” over the summer.

I also wanted to remind parents that with the warm and sunny weather, it is important to send a hat to school for your child to wear outdoors during the fitness breaks. Your child should have his/her sunscreen applied before school.

Dates to Remember
