Classroom News for the Week of June 4th

Dear Families of Room 12, 

It seems like the end of the year has arrived so quickly. Thank you all for another great year at Mount Washington. I have enjoyed spending the day with your children more than you know. They are, without exception, kind, hardworking, and inquisitive people. I look forward to seeing and hearing about all they will do and accomplish. Thank you too, for your support and classroom donations. You've helped make the year a smooth one.

If there is any way I can be useful to your family in the future, please don't hesitate to ask. I hope you all have a wonderful summer!

Sincerely, 

Ms. Convey

Please check your child's Homework Log nightly and sign or initial after the work has been completed. Remind your child that completed homework and the HW log are due in class daily.

Birthday Celebrations: If you would like to send treats to celebrate your child's birthday, please email me a day or 2 in advance so that I can make time in our schedule for it. Treats must be something small and easy to pass out. Donuts, cookies, muffins, and mini cupcakes all work great. We currently have 30 students in our class. Your child will distribute them at the end of the day as his/her classmates are leaving the room.

Donations: If you would like to make a donation to our class (this allows me to turn in receipts for purchases I have made for the students), you can write a check to "Mt. Washington El." In the subject line write, "Donation to Room 12". Any amount is appreciated! Thank you!
