Dear Parents, May 22,2020
As we approach the end of our school year, we want to let you know how much your children have grown this school year. Many are reading and computing nicely and are ready to tackle the first grade curriculum with success. The challenges of Long Distance Learning ( and Teaching) have offered the students ( and teachers) opportunities to grow in a new learning environment. Working in a school community such as St. Philip Neri makes us realize how grateful and blessed we are as teachers; without the parent collaboration and your partnership we could not be successful in the education of your children. Thank you.
Our last SuperKid will be Joshua. Thank you Joshua for being so patient. Instead of sharing next week, Joshua will share during the last week of school.
The Guesstimation Jar goes to Liam H. who will also share the last week of school.
Miss Mari, our author of EIEIART visited our Zoom class on Friday and spoke to the students about being a writer and lover of Art. The Kindergartners asked her some very insightful questions and shared their favorite artists. What a wonderful opportunity for the students.We will share the slideshow of their Art soon!
