IMPORTANT CALENDAR CHANGES

CHANGE IN OUR SCHOOL CALENDAR:

Remember our last days of school are now June 8th for the Fours and June 9th for the Threes.

BUT...

We will NOT have our end of the year fun day on the above listed dates. In the past we have usually had our end of the year party on the last day of the 3's and the 4's. This year I would like to hold the end of the year activities on our original last days.
Confused yet? :-)

The arrangements are as follows:

The Three's end of the year party will be Thursday, June 4.
The Three's last day of school will be Tuesday, June 9.


The Four's end of the year party will be Friday, June 5.
The Four's last day of school will be Monday, June 8.
I was so excited last week when I received an email from Colette's mom! She sent me their new address in South Carolina. 
Here it is: Colette Phan
                 1557 Calaveras Circle
                  Mt. Pleasant, S.C.
                                        29466

I love this...

from Eliot Wigginton:
We teach, and at the same time allow ourselves to be taught by those we teach. We talk, and at the same time, listen. We experience the world anew through another's eyes. And therein lies the secret of renewal. It comes, in part, from allowing students some of the same positive energy we try to put out into our lives. We refuel each other.
