I am playing hooky today. Well... my college girl has been on fall break and goes back to school today. I didn't want to commit to two hours of commute driving and then another three hours on the road for college girl. :/ So... I am trying to just relax and realize that a sub can handle my students for a day. Ha. That is not really like me! But I spent a lot of hours working on being ready yesterday. That's my excuse for not getting my letters posted! But better late than never! You can read/join Michelle's Sunday Letters at Big Time Literacy!
We will miss you terribly. I know some students doubted me at the beginning of the year when I said we are a class family, but now you and they know for sure how hard it is to say goodbye to a family member. We wish you the best in your new school. All of us want good things for you, but the truth is, our class family has a hole in our collective class heart because you are not coming back to our class.
Your family at school
I know I am a distracted momma, and I apologize for that. I just want you know that I being your mother is my saving grace. I am so pleased with the wonderful people you are maturing into. Spending time with you yesterday for family photos was a proud moment for me.
Full of Pride,
I am proud of you, you've come a long way in 8 1/2 weeks. I love coming to school every day and seeing you. I can't wait to see what you learn in your next project. You are going to grow and stretch in the next nine weeks. There are so many standards to meet to be ready for the infamous state testing.
Contemplating ways to stretch your minds,
Your (young to teaching) Teacher
