Dear Parents and Guardians,

I had to double check my address on my license because it feels like I am living in Seattle, Washington and not Alexandria, New Hampshire with all of this rain! We were fortunate that the rain stopped in time for our students to get out for lunch recess and for me to have Intramural Kickball. The field was wet and muddy but we had a good time.

Spring is a busy time of year for most of us. Spring sports like baseball, lacrosse, and flag football interrupt evening bedtimes. Families celebrate graduations, proms, weddings, and other events with parties, BBQs, and bonfires. Our schedules and daily routines seem to get all messed up and inconsistent.

However, research will tell us that children/students like consistency and routines. At our May Faculty Meeting, we reviewed the importance of teaching until the last day and how we need to keep our daily schedule as consistent as possible. We also discussed that change is difficult and stressful for many people. We want to help keep the momentum of learning going so we may continue to “grow their brains.”

We will sprinkle in some fun along the way through some academic field trips, YOU ROCK assembly, and field day. We ask that parents try to get their child to bed as close to their bedtime as possible and to keep reading nightly. Some families might have to get creative and read in the car or study math facts around the campfire.

Together, we can make the end of the year enjoyable, fun, educational, and memorable. Have a great weekend!
