It's hard to believe that this is our last week of school! Please take a look at our COVID Keepsake Series book. Reading your work and that of the other first graders brought joy to my days. I hope you enjoy reading it. It is posted on the website or you can go straight there: https://read.bookcreator.com/NonihYEHuRQJIqb6aNLKqZrLxqu1/Ad2kVqMNTVehVU2hnkobkQ
We will zoom tomorrow, when I will raffle off Pasta! I will give Pasta to the winner of the raffle during our Summer Send Off on Friday. If you are not able to make the wave-by event, please let me know. As a reminder, we are still social distancing, and staying safe at home; No one should get out of the car on Friday. Instead, we will say hello and wave goodbye from a distance. I can't wait to see you! 😍
We are also zooming on Thursday, which will be our last zoom call of this year. The optional first grade spirit day is Graduation Hat Day. 😞
