Wow, can you believe June is here!!!  The children have been very busy reviewing all the basic skills they have learned this year in preparation for first grade.  Please continue to review popcorn words, read the word families booklets and stories that were sent home weekly for HW.  Please continue to write in your journal over the summer.  Let me know how your sunflowers are growing.  Tell me where you have gone and what you have been doing over the summer. Don't forget to bring your journal on the first day back to school with all your journal entries.

********************************************************************

On Tuesday, June 12th, graduation will start at 9:00 A.M. and will

last about one hour.  There will be refreshment after the ceremony. 

Please be sure your child wears their dress-up cloths and girls shouldn't

wear high pony tails in their hair because it will interfere with their

caps. The children will also be wearing graduation gowns as well.

**********************************************

I would like to thank Mrs. Cordeira and Mrs. Davanzo, our class mother’s

for all that they  have done for the children and me.  They worked very

hard on all our celebrations and graduation set up.  Thank you also to all

our parent volunteers and chaperones who accompanied us on class

trips.  Your help was very much appreciated.
