Thank you!

Dear Parents,

The school year has flown by and now we only have one more school day until summer vacation. I want to thank each of you for sharing your children with me this school year. I feel so blessed to have been a part of your children’s lives. 

Also, thank you so much for the outpouring of volunteerism and donations for our class this year.  I truly could not have had all the activities and have them run so smoothly if I hadn’t had such great support.

Have a safe, healthy, and happy summer!  I will miss you! agcthankyou8

What’s Coming Up- Week of October 31

halloweenHappy Halloween!

I know that this is a busy and exciting evening for families. My treat to you is to give students the night off from Math homework and Moby Max! Have a fun and stay safe tonight!

Thank you to all of the parents who donated items, helped out, or just came to our fall party on Friday. We appreciate you! 


  • Reading expectation 100 minutes per week.
  • Camp balance reminder sheet will be included with report card envelopes and given out during conference week.  The remaining camp balance will be due by November 18.
  • Moby Max – All fifth-grade students are expected to complete five minutes of math fact fluency practice at home each night (Monday through Thursday) using Moby Max. Success in fifth-grade math is highly dependent on fact fluency and number sense.pumpkin

Merry Christmas & A Very Blessed New Year

santa-snow-globeWe had a fantastic day.  Our breakfast was a HUGE success because of the overwhelming support of all of YOU!  We went caroling around the school, enjoyed playing board and card games, and enjoyed a visit from Mr. Bowen’s class to sing songs together.

When reflecting on the day I realize I hadn’t taken enough pictures. I didn’t capture so many of the little moments. I’m sitting here smiling thinking of the kids lining up to get whipped cream squirted into their mouths, them moving the tables back to position without using any words (a challenge, but they did awesome). I picture Mrs. Ripley and Mrs. Hoekstra giving kids hugs after we sang Silent Night to them, and then later in the afternoon the kids quoting the film along with the actors as we enjoyed watching. These little memories, and so many other moments I will cherish when I reflect on this day.

Thank you for spoiling me with your generosity. I am overwhelmed by the gifts your children shared with me these last couple of days. I especially thank you for sharing your children with me each and every school day.  I am blessed to have a job that gives me so much joy.

My wish for you and your families is to have a restful, happy, and healthy holiday season. 

Merry Christmas! ~ Kym Burdis
