It's almost SPRING! Lots to catch up on.

Colonial Boston in 1770 (in F3) :)

Hello Families!

Thanks so much for such a great start to 2012! The Colonial Boston Feast was awesome before break and it would not have happened if it it weren't for your help!

I wanted to let you know about some things that are coming up:

First off, we'll be starting the FLASH unit (Family Life and Sexual Health) on Monday, March 12. You can read a copy of my letter to families here.

Second, I wanted to let you know about a rescheduled event happening tomorrow night: At 6:30 in F-Pod, Mike Donlin will be coming to discuss cyber safety and awareness. This is a very timely and important topic for fifth graders. Hope to see you there.

Last, I wanted to give all parents a heads up that I will be taking family leave starting at the end of May. I am thrilled to announce that my partner is pregnant and our son is due in early June. The class will be left with a great guest teacher. All major testing will be completed at this point. I will try my very best to be here for the fifth grade graduation on the last day of school. :)

All the best!

Ms. V
