It is a bit hard to believe that we are at the end of the year. I am still trying to catch up with many details after being out due to illness for a big part of May. There is certainly a lot going on in Third Grade. Many thanks to Nicole Rhodes for ably covering during my absence.
Our play about the Civil War is on for 1:30 on June 15, Grandparents Day. We are hoping many grandparents will come back that afternoon for the play. We hope you will join us as well. Expect songs, dance and a solid dose of history about this traumatic, defining event in our nations history.
Our annual local history Tour Around Town field trip will be the morning of June 18. We will also do our post-poned spring hike that week on the morning of June 19. Permission slips come home today.
We have completed all of the state mandated and building based end of year assessments. Typically you will receive MCAS results in the fall.
Our last significant academic task is completion of the biographies about notable people from Massachusetts history. These will come home this week to be “typed.” We will share them in class next week.
Last, thank you again to the parents who chaperoned on the Boston trip. It was a good day.
