Dear Parents,

Well, one more year down!  Your children are officially 7th graders!!  It was a fun day today -- signing of yearbooks, opening of time capsules, gobbling of candy, singing Happy Birthday many, many times . . .  Hopefully, students will look back on this year with fondness.  I know that I will.  You have amazing children, and I will miss them a lot!! 
As I told the kids, my doors is always open to them (and to you) if you need me!  I appreciate ALL of the support you have given to me throughout the school year!!  I couldn't have done it without you.
As far as what your child can do during the summer — you know what I am going to say — READ!  Rest, relax, have fun, be a kid, and READ.  Hopefully, all students can carve out 30 minutes a day to do some reading.
A special thank you to Mrs. Andersen (Owen’s mom) and Mrs. Schneider (Raiff’s mom) for coming into our classrooms as our Project Cornerstone volunteers.  We really appreciated their time and the valuable lessons that they taught throughout the year. 
Another special thank you to Mrs. Mantelli  (Diego's mom) for baby-sitting our classroom plants this summer.  Diego will be helping his mom which I really appreciate.  And, a special thank you to Nisitha (and her mom) for helping me keep the classroom plants alive during the school year!  :)  
I hope you all have a relaxing and restful summer.  Enjoy your children!  Time goes by way too fast.  Before you know it, it will be August and back to school!!
Best wishes,
Miss Perris

Happy Monday,
 
Unfortunately, I still have many 0's in my grade book (particularly in social studies).  Students were all aware that today was the last day to get in any missing work, but most did not take advantage of it.  Additionally, there are several students who did not reach their AR goal (even with the inclusion of the Jaguar quiz).  Overall grades still look good, which is probably what most students look at when deciding whether or not to complete work.

Happy Friday,
 
Today was a fun day at the park.  I think everyone had a good time.  Thank you to all of our parents for helping to make this happen.  As with most things related to school, we couldn’t have done it without you.
 
As far as next week, we will be having minimum days.  This means that students will be getting out of school at 2:07 pm.  The last day of school is Wednesday, 6/13.  
 
There is still some missing work in both social studies and Language Arts (Perris) AND there are still many students who have not reached their AR goal.  Hopefully, these students will be taking an AR test on Monday (last day to take a test).  I will accept late work on Monday as well, but that has to be the cut-off, since grades are due on Tuesday afternoon.
 
It seems we are missing one of our Jaguar books (hard cover).  I would appreciate it if you could have your child look for it at home.
 
And, I would like to have all of my classroom library books back on Monday.
 
Don’t forget that Ancient Societies “Art” Day is on Tuesday morning, and then, Sport-A-Thon in the afternoon.
 
Have a great weekend.

Happy Baskin-Robbins Thursday,
 
Students did a fantastic job last night at the annual Notes and Floats concert!!  It was really a treat to watch them all perform!
 
As far as tomorrow’s picnic, they have moved the school election to Monday, so as soon as students watch the morning announcements, we will be ready to take off to the park.  School starts at 8:40 am for those parents who will be walking with us to the park or driving to the park.  We will need to put all of the goodies into the cars of the parents who are driving.
 
Don’t forget to pack a lunch!!  And, remember to bring a water bottle!!
 
Students need to wear closed-toe shoes — no flip-flops or sandals!
 
As far as next week, we will be having minimum days.  This means that students will be getting out of school at 2:07 pm.  The last day of school is Wednesday.
 
We look forward to seeing many of you tomorrow.
 
Have a good night.
 
Oh, and please remind your child to look for books from our classroom library.  I would like them all back by Monday.
