The Week of June 10th
a progressive learning environment
Dear Junior Kindergarten Families,
I cannot believe we are headed into the last week of school! We have been so busy with building clever Rube Goldberg inventions, creating stories in Writer's Workshops, and exploring the work of David Wiesner in Author's Study, it was difficult to remember that the end of the year has come. In this last week of Junior Kindergarten, students will have many opportunities to reflect upon how they have grown as students, friends, and community members. Traveling back in time to the very beginning of the year, students will finally open their Time Capsules and discover just how much they have changed. We will remember our favorite moments of JK as well as consider our hopes for the summer and next school year. This week we will also gather and place their impressive work into a portfolio so that it may be transported home safely. And finally, we will end the week with a celebratory JK Garden Party in which students will contribute to the garden mural, enjoy a few treats, and give appreciation for the amazing year we have had.
Thank you all so much for your support throughout the year, this is a class I will never forget.
Have an fantastic summer!
With love, Sophie
