Good morning. Happy Friday! It is with a very sad heart that I have to say good-bye to you all today. I have so enjoyed being your first grade teacher this year. You have worked so hard and learned so many new things. Even through the school closure these past 11 weeks a lot of you continued to do your remote learning lessons every single day. I am so proud of you for being so dedicated to your school work and to learning. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to talk with you several times each week. And thanks to your families for supporting you during your remote learning. I know it wasn't an easy thing to take on, but you all worked so hard with your children, and for that I am very grateful. Without you this would not have been possible.
I hope I get to see you at the 'parade' around Orrington today. I can't wait to wave to you and say good-bye to you in person, and wish you a wonderful summer. Until then...
June 5th will be our last formal day of school. As promised, we will be doing a bus/car parade. We will be leaving Center Drive at 10:00. Our route will be as follows: Turn left onto Center Drive to the River Road. Turn left onto River Road to Swett's Pond Road.On Swett's Pond, turn left onto Johnson Mill Road, then right onto Center Drive. Turn left onto Long Hill, then right onto Brewer Lake. Go out and around the loop on Brewer Lake and return to Lake Road and to Bob's Kozy Korner. Turn right onto Snow's Corner, then left onto Kent's Drive. Turn left onto Snow's Corner, then right onto River Road, driving down McKinley and Roosevelt Avenues. Turn left onto River Road back to Center Drive. Turn left at Bouchard Drive, then return to school. Our hope, of course, is if your road isn’t within this route you will find a place to bring some chairs along the route and wait for us. WE WANT TO SEE AS MANY KIDS AS POSSIBLE!
