What's going on in Room 125?

Thank You for An Amazing Year!

I can not emphasize enough how thankful I am for this amazing first year we had together at Edison. I just want to repeat what I said to you at our party, in my notes home, and in individual conversations about how much your children and families mean to me. I am so proud of how much success everyone had this year!

Thank you to everyone who made it out to our room party and graduation yesterday. It was wonderful to celebrate with you.

The next couple of days will be fun and relaxed. We have more parties, talent shows, and are cleaning up the room.  Lots of work and name lables from around the room will be in their backpacks.

I am also sending home “Summer Practice Bags”. These have some materials to practice skills we have been working on at home over the summer. These include things like sight word cards, number cards, papers for practicing writing names, some reading material, and some have writing workbooks. Spending just a bit of time each day or week practicing school skills will help students retain them for next year.  Let me know if you have any questions about any of the materials.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all you do for your children each and every day.  Have an amazing summer, and keep in touch!

Please Save These Dates!

Good morning families!

I may be repeating myself with notes home, the class calendar, and these posts, but there are so many important dates that I want to make sure everybody knows!  Thank you for the great attendance as the end of the year rapidly approaches. Please keep it up so that everyone is sure to enjoy all of the end of the year festivities!

Please save these dates, and let me know if you have any questions/comments/concerns. I hope to see you at one or all of the following events, and especially hope that all of the students continue to come to school every day to join all of these celebrations!

Friday, May 18: Enrichment Day! (all day). We are spending the day with our Recess Buddies. Not only will this be a fun day, it is also very important to the Buddies. They have done so much for our kids this year, and really love them, so please make sure your child comes to school this Friday.  We will be bowling, having a picnic in the park, making yearbooks, and making a Recess Buddy video!

Monday, May 21: Recess Buddy Party! (11-1) Again, this is an important day to celebrate the first year of the Recess Buddy program. Parents are invited and pizza and cupcakes will be provided. If you have not already done so, please let me know if you will be attending this event TODAY so that we can be sure to have enough food.

Wednesday, May 23: Room 125 Party and Continuation. (1:30-3:30).  This is our own class party. It will be an opportunity to celebrate the year and say goodbye to our friends. We will be especially celebrating our two students who are “graduating” to a new school next year.  Everyone can bring a special treat for the event. Please let me know if you will be attending.

Another note: check your child’s homework folder for IEP progress reports. I will be sending these home in the next few days.  When reading these reports keep in mind that “N” mean “not introduced”, “P” means “progress”, “X” means “mastered”, “R” means “regression” and “O” means no progress or regression.  Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks for all you do!  I am looking forward to celebrating a wonderful year with all of you!  Do not hestitate to contact me about any of our festivities (or anything else). Have a wonderful Wednesday!

-Ms Wales

Important Dates and Parties!

Hello families!  I can not believe that the last day of school is only 2 weeks away. What an amazing year it has been!  As the last day of school quickly approaches, we have some exciting events coming our way.  Please join us for the following parties:

Monday, May 21

Please join us for our Recess Buddies Party! The first year of the Recess Buddies program has been a huge succes!  From 11-1 we will celebrate all of the Buddies with pizza, cake, awards, and games.  It would be wonderful for you all to be there.  It would be wonderful for you to meet your child’s amazing Buddies, and for them to get to talk to you as well! We will walk from Edison to Wolff Park at 11.

Wednesday, May 23

This will be our class party. We will celebrate the successes of the year, “continue” our students who are graduating to intermediate programs next year, and say goodbye to all of our friends and families for the summer.  Our party will be from 1:30-3:30 and we will meet at Edison in Room 125.

Please let me know if you are able to attend one or both or these two parties.  I sincerely hope that everyone can make it out for our celebrations!
