Last Two Weeks of School!!

WOW!!  It is the final days of the year!!  I want to thank all of you for an amazing Teacher Appreciation Week!!  I really did feel the love and appreciation from the children and from the parents!! Thank you SO much!!  In the next two weeks, we will be doing some fun writing activities, finishing up unit 12 in math (we are working with 2-digit numbers with re-grouping and with 3-digit numbers), studying rocks, and if we have some time, we will be doing some fun art activities.  The last two weeks are always packed with fun things, but don't worry, we will be doing some of our regular learning activities too!!  Some of you had some questions about the media release form that I sent home about a week ago, I would like to explain what that is for.  I am involved in a state program for gifted education that is call "High Ability" and I have been doing some lessons in our classroom.   When I do some of the lessons, they like to have us video tape them and then go over the lesson with other teachers to figure out how the lesson went and how I can improve.  There are several teachers at Coral Cliffs involved in this program and it is an amazing opportunity for our class and for our school.  I also thought that it would be a good idea because I do take pictures of your children throughout the year at the various school activities and doing fun things at school to put on the blog.  By signing the paper, it gives me permission to use the video and the pictures of your children for school purposes and for the blog.  I promise that I will use these pictures in a professional manner and ONLY for school use.  I hope that this all makes sense.  If you have any more questions or concerns, please feel free to email me.  Thanks again for everything.  This year has been amazing and everything that I could wish for.  HAVE A FANTASTIC AND SAFE SUMMER!!

Swine Flu

I'm sure that you have been listening to the news and I'm sure that a lot of rumors have started.  We had a school meeting today about our pandemic plan and about the swine flu.  The district has a plan in place and will use it if necessary.  School will still be held until otherwise notified!!  Please make sure that your kids are washing their hands and that if they DO get sick, please keep them home!!  If school does get canceled due to this virus, the news will be alerted and we will also be using our phone system to contact you.  I will also keep you updated on our class blog.  Whenever I get some information, I will share it with you.  Please do not panic, everything is ok and school will continue on like normal.  If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at OR call the school.  Once again, I would like to emphasize to NOT PANIC.  I just wanted to let you know that we are ready for anything, and I wanted you to understand what would happen in case of an outbreak. Thanks so much for checking the blog and staying informed on our activities at school.  Thanks for all that you do and for your help and support.
