Wrapping up the Year

TimeJune 02, 2013

from:Bidell, Barbara

to:All Students

Monday marks the last academic day of the school year, and there is no rest for the weary. Students will be presenting their slide shows that day moving through the 20th century. We are doing through through pop culture; students are taking each word of the verses of Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire," and writing at least two sentences on each term. The verses we have gone through have been magnificent so far. 

As I mentioned, Monday will be our last day of academics. Students will be participating in Field Day on Tuesday morning and will be watching a play in the afternoon. Wednesday, students will get their yearbooks and will be signing those throughout the morning. Wednesday is a half-day.

I want to thank everyone who has been checking in with the blog. I truly appreciate your interest. I think the students have done a remarkable job with the various service delivery methods. Students have created innovative projects, have been involved in plays, and have even been willing to take on the persona of a U.S. President. 

I've had a wonderful time teaching your sons and daughters. I do appreciate all the effort that they have put into their education.

I hope everyone has a terrific and much deserved summer break. I look forward to seeing you next year.
