Dear Parents,

This is the last post for the year. I've enjoyed being your child's English teacher this year. I encourage all students to keep up with English by reading over the summer...novels, newspapers, how-to books, or whatever interests your child.

I will add the final assignment scores to PowerSchool today. By tomorrow, the grade you see will be the one that appears on the final report card.

Have a wonderful summer and I look forward to seeing your child next year as an 8th Grader.

Lori Bertolucci
