As a result of the weather forecast for tomorrow, Mr. Joe and I decided to hold our field day at the basin at the school rather than away at the park. This will give us easier access to water to stay hydrated in the heat as well as a quick getaway in case of rain. Feel free to bring any water balloons for our games directly to the school and the children will take everything we need to the grass first thing tomorrow morning. We look forward to some outdoor fun!

As the year is coming to a close, we are so pleased to see how much everyone has grown. This is especially apparent as we look at the photos that Ms. Kathy and I have taken all year long. I have made hardbound class yearbooks as an end of year project for nearly a decade, but this time we are particularly amazed at how quickly the yearbook has come together, thanks to our amazing 6th grade editors. We are so excited as we watch our latest group ready to leave the Montessori nest into middle school, making big plans and taking charge of larger works on their own, but we are also excited knowing that this year's 4th and 5th graders will be our future classroom models and leaders and they are definitely up for the challenge.
We are almost finished putting in the final photos, art, and writing samples for the class yearbook and hope to have it ready to publish tomorrow night. This was a challenge because my hard drive failed on my personal computer and I lost hundreds of photos of the class. If you have any photos you would like added to our gallery, please feel free to email them to us. I will share the link to our class photos shortly that we will also put in a photo gallery for graduation.
Please note, yearbooks will be printed in black and white. We hope to send you the color PDFs of our yearbook tomorrow so that if you wish to have a color copy to bind at school, you will have the opportunity to print it on your own in color. If enough people are up for printing their child's book in color, I could probably get a discount on the printing with enough willing to contribute to the cost. The yearbook will have approximately 37 letter size pages printed on both sides. We have the combs and cardstock for the binding that the children will use in class to make their own uniquely designed cover.
Please be on the lookout for a new invitation for the End-of-Year Festivities that was developed and created by our amazing 6th graders. The changes will also be noted on our class blog. We thank you so much for making this a wonderful year. We feel very privileged for the opportunity to work with your amazing children every day. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
