Final Students of the Week

I like to look to Class Dojo when it comes to the final SOTW.  Here, I go with a podium finish:

Hannah earns the top spot for having the highest overall percentage all year long at 98% (three percent higher than the second-place student).

In the “silver medal” position is Haily, whose 469 total combined points was the highest in the class over the course of the year (and 10 points ahead of the second-most combined points).

Bringing up third is Erin who, in addition to having a stellar finish to the year academically, was the most improved student for combined points (194 to 247) and percentage (89% to 95%) between terms one and two.

Well done, ladies.  You should be very proud of yourselves for your achievements!

Weekly Digest

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Just three days to go!  Wow!  As we wrap up what’s left of the school year, students will begin bringing home no longer needed school materials.  This will lighten their load on the final day of school.  What the students choose to do with these materials is up to them but encourage them to recycle if they don’t plan on hanging onto them.

Thank you for your efforts in seeing our pot luck a huge success.  We had quite an array of foods to eat and it was enjoyed heartily.  All containers, crock pots, etc. were sent home yesterday so I’m assuming they made it home safely.

Today’s “year end” trip was a delight.  Ice cream, picnic, swimming – who would complain about that?  Thank you to Mrs. Newton for making the pool available to us (at no cost, I might add).

I’m hopeful that you’ve been kept in the loop with your child’s progress all term long (“Tests” section of the Reminder Binder, Class Dojo reports) so I don’t foresee any report card surprises for you.  Please keep in mind, however, that assessment is more than just tests and projects, so several other elements factor into the final grade.  As I mentioned in an earlier Digest, the grades are a reflection of your child’s performance during the term.  Therefore, if your child experienced difficulty with the material in reading this term and his/her grade dropped, it doesn’t mean that he/she has “slipped” in reading; rather, he/she was just more challenged by the material in term two compared to term one.  Report cards will come home on the last day of school.

Speaking of the last day, we’ll finish up with clean up and clean out.  Students will also find out who their teacher is for next year.  When we make class lists, we always keep the students’ best interests in mind, please know that.

Enjoy the last weekend before summer!

Student of the Week

For taking the initiative to organize our pot luck lunch, I’d like to acknowledge Reagan as the second-last SOTW award winner.  Although she had help in the planning stages, it was Reagan who first approached me about having a pot luck in the first place.  All great things begin with an idea first.  Looking forward to Thursday!
