The last day of school is finally here.  Graduation last night was awesome!  The kids looked great!

I just wanted to take a minute to let you all know how proud I am of all of you!  You are hard workers and great kids.  You will all go far in life.  I am going to miss each and everyone of you next year.  I hope some of you will stop by to say hi every once in a while.  I also want to thank all of the parents.  You guys have been a great support this year.  You have helped to make it all happen.  Thank you!  I hope everyone has a great summer!  Good luck next year in middle school!

Today we will be having field day, a lunch outside for the kids, yearbook signing, and finishing up anything they are working on.  Great job kids!  I will miss you!

2 days left!!!  It is graduation day!  Yeah!

The kids are excited about graduating and should be very proud of their accomplishments!  They worked hard this year and they deserve it.

Most of them seem to be having a fantastic time creating their music videos.  I hope a few of them finish today so that I can record them and they can be played on the news on Friday.

Awesome job 6th graders!  Congratulations!

3 days to go!!!

Don't forget that we get out of school early today at 2:25.

The kids really seemed to like the idea of creating the music videos that we talked about yesterday.  It is a stress free and fun way to end the year.  I am excited about this project and can't wait to see what is in store for me.

We have a short field day on Friday from 9:30-11:00.  We will be competing against the 5th graders.  It should be a lot of fun.  Also, starting at 11:00 we are going to have a picnic with all of the 6th graders outside.  We are requesting that not a whole bunch of parents come, it is just a time for the kids to talk, hang out, and sign yearbooks.  If they want to pack a lunch and bring a towel or blanket to sit on, that would be awesome.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

4 days left!!!  We are getting closer to being done.

Yesterday, we took our end of the year math test.  The kids did not do quite as well as I expected, but it is the end of the year and most of them are checked out to middle school already.

We have one more presentation in social studies in Mr. Cohen's class and that is it.

Today, we are going to be watching food wars this morning that the gsp kids are putting on.  It will be fun.  Also, we are going to be beginning a fun music video project that we will be working on for the next few days.  I think the kids will have a blast with this.

That's all for today!  2 more days until graduation!!!  Yeah kids!

Last 5 days of school!!!  Keep working hard!

Today is Monday and the big day for the end of the year math test.  I know everyone has all of the skills necessary to do well.  I can't wait to see how much they have improved throughout the year.

Tomorrow we are going to be starting a fun project in class.  I think the kids will like it.  It is not for a grade, just for fun!

Have a marvelous Monday!

7 more days to go...

Today we are taking our district social studies test and filling out our study guide for the math test.  It is going to be a busy day.  I hope everyone is focused out there.

Only a couple more social studies presentations and then we are done with those as well.  Can't wait to be done.  I know more about ancient cultures and civilizations than I could ever have imagined.  Excellent work kids!

Have a thunderous Thursday!!!
