Last Week of School! Updated 6/8/2020

Good morning Wildcats! It's the last week of school finally and we only have four days left of this school year. You have all worked so hard and each and everyone of you should be proud of all that you have learned. Here are some announcements about the last few days of school.
  1. Please turn in your End of Year Project through Google Classroom or email me pictures of student work. 
    • I am amazed by the creativity I have seen in so many projects that have already been turned in. Great job team! 
  2. Final Zoom Hangout Schedule for this year:
    • Tuesday, 6/9 @ 2:00 - 2:30 PM will be a fun hangout
    • Tuesday, 6/9 @ 6:30 - 7:00 PM will be a chance for students to present their End of Year Projects to their classmates and talk about them. Basically sharing their projects like they would share any other item. 
    • Wednesday, 6/10 @ 2:00 PM will be a last hangout where students can share and say hi. 
  3. Summer Send-Off Parade 6/10/2020 @ 6:00 PM
    • When: Wednesday June 10th from 6:00 - 7:00 PM. We will be asking families with 8th graders to come by around 6:00 PM and all other families to come around 6:20 PM. This will allow the 8th graders to be dropped off at the gym and then go to their graduation rehearsal on the field.
    • Where: Janesville school parking lots (office and gym). Families will be able to drive by to say goodbye to all of the staff here at Janesville school. Staff will only be able to see the passenger side of the car during the parade. Details about the parade route and other information can be found here: Parade Flyer and Parade Route Info.
    • What: We will be making signs and showing our school spirit by wearing our spirit wear and we will also have other fun and festive decorations to show our students how much we adore and miss them, as well as how proud we all are of them and their perseverance and growth this year.
    • Families can decorate your cars with streamers, window paint, balloons, pool noodles, banners and so much more. There are some great ideas on Pinterest! Also, students and families can wear their spirit wear or school colors red, blue and white to show your amazing Wildcat Spirit. 
    • Lastly, families: Please remain in your cars during the parade. If students need to pick up anything from school or drop anything off, please message me and we can schedule a time to meet this week. 
  4. Thursday's Graduation Ceremonies
    • Kindergarten Graduation will be at 9:00 AM
    • 8th Grade Graduation will be 7:00 PM
      • Please contact me or the office if you have any questions about these events. 😊
  5. Chromebook Returns
    • If you checked out a Chromebook for distance learning, please begin returning these devices to the office this week from Monday through Friday from 9:-- AM to 2:00 PM. All devices must be returned by Friday June 12th. The sooner you can return your device, that way not everyone is returning devices on Friday.
  6. Missing and Overdue Library Books
    • Please return any missing library books by Friday June 12th to the office.
  7. Report Cards
    • Report cards will be mailed on Wednesday, June 10th
    • Once you receive your student's report card and you have questions, please call me at my home office

Weekly Lesson plan
First Grade

Below you'll find an outline for this week with events. I can't believe we have made it to this final week in first grade! I hope everyone is able to take some time to celebrate all of our students' successes and growth from this past year. The class of Room 113 is definitely special, incredibly bright, and full of compassion and kindness. I cannot wait to see all of the places they will go and amazing things they will accomplish. Congratulations team! You did it! 👏👏👏

pencilOur Last Week of School 6/8 - 6/11Top of Page

 Monday  Tuesday  Wednesday  Thursday  Friday
Important info:
  1. Distance learning has concluded and Chromebook's can now be returned to the office during office hours.

  1. Zoom hangout @ 2 PM
    • Students can socialize and see their friends. Just a regular hangout.
  2. Zoom hangout @ 6:30 PM
    • This zoom will hopefully be special in that many of our classmates will be able to attend and share their End of Year Projects. It is not a formal presentation, but I can tell that students worked incredibly hard and I wanted to give them an opportunity to share their success with their friends. 
    • If you are able to attend, please do so. The more the merrier!
  1. Last Zoom Hangout @ 2 PM
    • Originally, Tuesday night was going to be our last zoom. But a student requested one more so that she could share something special that she won't have until Wednesday. So there will be one more hangout for students to see each other before the end of the year.

What an amazing year! We did it team. We have learned and grown so much together. Thank you everyone for making 2019-20 a year I'll never forget and I hope you don't either. Have a great summer everyone!!! You've earned it! 😃👍👏
