Welcome to Summer!
Who could have guessed when the year started that it would end the way it did? It definitely was a unique year. I want to thank you for first, entrusting the care and education of your children to me, and secondly, for your help and support during distance learning. I think we made a pretty good team! Reflecting on this year, I think the thing I missed the most was the time I lost just enjoying your children. They were truly a class to remember. Our Morning Meetings were a time to get to know them on such a personal level. This class was full of ideas, insights, empathy, and energy for life. I will not be forgetting this wonderful group of students and look forward to seeing them on their way to fifth grade next year.
I know that you may have concerns about how next year will start. I think we all do. But let me reassure you by reminding you that the fifth grade team is a wonderful group of teachers who are well able to navigate the challenges that lie ahead. You can be confident that your child will have a wonderful learning experience with these teachers. I feel especially proud that I can tell the fifth grade teachers that their incoming students did a remarkable job during the distance learning period. They are ready for fifth grade!
So set aside any worries that you may have and enjoy vacation with your families. I wish you a happy, safe, and relaxing summer.
