It doesn't feel quite as fulfilling this year to create a
webpage entitled "End of School Year" for some reason. But
we're here, and I just want to thank all of
you for your support this year. This
group of parents has been extremely positive and open, and I can't
thank you enough for how you've handled the last few months
especially. I know we're all juggling changed schedules and
kids at home and different communication.
Your kids have been a lot of fun. They sure do have some
personality, and I appreciate what each of them brought to the
class. Luckily, I still get to have them next year!
The schedule and class updates are found below. Just 2
class days. Please, please, please make sure you take a look
at Track and Field Day stuff. There are 5
"events", and have your child choose 3 to
participate in. I shared a Google Doc with you to update with
your event "scores". Please add those right to the
document. If you didn't receive the track and field document,
please let me know! I sent it earlier in the week, but I
can't remember which day because every day is a blur.
We will be in communication about when to drop off books
and supplies when the school year ends. Hopefully lockers are
already cleared out.

The last week of the 2019-2020 school year has arrived! Although
this year did not end the way we had hoped, it hopefully has helped
us to focus on what is truly important in life. As we head into a
Summer that may be very different than any other, I pray you
continue to focus on Jesus! Make time for Him daily through reading
His Word and through prayer. Make time for Him weekly by coming
together with the body of Christ for worship. Reflect His love and
light to the world, because we were Made to Reflect!
As always if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to
email or call me email@example.com or

English/Writing: We've enjoyed learning about
many amazing people -- heroes -- who saw something a problem and
were not afraid to ask, "How can we change this?"
Literature: We're continuing with Esperanza
Rising and will finish the novel together this coming week. During
our last week of school, we'll be getting together one more time to
identify the truths from the author's own life in the novel as well
as connect the social justice themes to our own lives. Look
for Google Hangout links in your Literature Google
