See You In The Fall

Dear First Grade families,
 It has been a privilege to be your children's first grade teacher.  I so appreciate all of your support and involvement throughout the year.  Each of the children have brought something unique and positive to our learning community.  I am looking forward to our 2nd grade adventure. How lucky am I to be their teacher for a 2nd year!

Take care

Last Days of First Grade

We had a wonderful time choosing books from Mrs. Lee's summer book sale in the gallery. What a great way to inspire reading! On the last day, we enjoyed a great assembly followed by a summer themed DEAM lead by Ms. McCue and the 5th graders.

3rd grade buddies

We enjoyed a morning of playing games, recess and snack with our 3rd grade buddies.  Time with our buddies has been such a special part of our 1st grade year.

Summer Reading at the Hamilton-Wenham Library

Today, the children met with Lorraine Derr, the children's librarian from the Hamilton-Wenham library. She shared the plans for the summer reading program at the library and discussed many of the new book selections available.  The children will bring home a brochure with all of the program information on Tuesday. Be on the look out for this year's mascot, super hero dinosaur.

The DeCordova Sculpture Garden

Today was the perfect day to explore the sculpture garden. The children were excited to see so many different sculptures. My thanks to all of you who joined us.  With that many adults, the children's experience is very personal.  I recommend a family trip to this gem.

5th grade Musical

The 5th graders gave a fabulous performance of The Emperor's New Clothing on Wednesday morning.

Pass The Paint

On Tuesday afternoon, the class had their last first grade art class. They spent the time playing Pass The Paint and each person created a unique piece of art.
