Last day!!!

Happy last day!!!! We had a great day! I cannot believe it's over!
After having my daughter this year, I am constantly reminded just how precious every moment is that you can spend with you child. In your case, your precious little 2nd grader is moving up to 3rd grade and becoming a "big kid" within our school; I hope that you are able to soak up every moment with your "little kid" this summer before you all move up into the 3rd grade world of daily planners, lockers, and book reports!!

As I prepare to take a 2 year leave of absence from teaching, I am reminded of all the students and parents who I have met in my career. I have truly loved each and every student I have ever taught. I have received so much love and joy from my students over the years and will look back at my time at Poupard with very find memories. I consider all my students and their families as a part if my extended family. Thank you so much for your warmth, kindness, and for sharing your little babies with me!

If you ever need to contact me you can do so on my personal email account (as my school email will be shut down) which is:
I'd love updates about your student :)

Have a wonderful summer!!

Tomorrow is our picnic! So far we have plates, napkins, juice, chips, and Rice Krispies. If you could send sine fruit (grapes, apples slices, ect) that would be super. We also REALLY need helpers to come set up and monitor the stations!! It's not hard work, I swear :) we just need parents willing to come play with the kids! Come if you can! We're starting at 12:30!

Half days wed and thurs! Report cards and summer bridge books go home Thursday!!

Happy Friday!! Today was an awesome day- we had kickball outside, worked on our end of the year math evaluation, did some writing, cleaned out our desks, and just spent a little extra time enjoying each other! I can't believe how mature these kids have gotten!! I can see it in everything they do- from the jokes they make to the way they help around the classroom. They are no longer primary students!! Only 4 days until they are officially in the intermediate grades! Wow

Our picnic is Tuesday. So far we have: juice boxes, chips, cookies, Plates, wipes/napkins, and water bottles. We could use more side dishes to go with our pizza (fruit, crackers, something!!) thanks to those who have signed up to help already!! I need someone to help fill up water balloons!! If you can come around 11 that would be wonderful!

Have a great weekend! Don't forget to look through the backpack. Lots of papers in there. I kept the orange folders to turn in for the end of the year so you'll have to do some digging to find those papers, im sure! :)

Thank you so much to all our parent volunteers who went with us to greenfield village yesterday-- the kids had a great time and learned so much :) I lived hearing all their stories today about what they saw and everything you did!

Today at school we had our awards assembly. Many students received a citizenship award, a couple got an attendance award, and everyone got a promotion to 3rd grade award!! :) the kids did a little chant/skit at the awards and were very proud of themselves :)

Our class won the box top contest!!!!!!!!!!!! We will be having an ice cream party to celebrate on Monday :)

Please remember to send in your picnic sheet on Friday!
