First, I would like to say thank you for all of the teacher appreciation last week! I was overwhelmed with your kindness. I love each thoughtful gesture, note, and gift.
Red folders came home today. You will see many graded papers as we wrap up this quarter and year. There will also be one final set of papers to go home. I ask that folders are returned by Thursday so that I can send home papers again on Friday.
Invitations for the fourth grade awards ceremony went home this afternoon. The invitation is in your child’s red folder. Please note that attendance and grades are not finalized until Friday, so these may be subject to change.
Yearbooks - I hope everyone is enjoying their yearbooks. Parents, if you have not had an opportunity, please skim through the inside of the book and see if you notice any sections missing. We have had a few instances where random sections were missing from a few books. I want to make sure your book is complete. I think this is isolated to a few books, but I want to be sure every is happy.
If you notice anything missing, let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org), and I will provide a new copy.
Here are the sections that should be there if you want to check:
