This is it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Remember that we have  the Social Studies SOL test on Monday and the Science SOL  test on Tuesday.  Both will be given at 10:00.  Please try to have the kids here on time, rested, fed, and ready to do some quality work.  I hope you have reviewed at home.  We have here.

As they look to the summer:  please make use of the IXL program, reading eggs, and  the public library.  Also, you can access our school STAR program on your home computer where there are all kinds of games and things to help the children retain what they have learned.  This has been the nicest group of children I have worked with in my 22 elementary years.

I will be retiring at the end of the month and look forward to free time to do some things that interest me.  Enjoy your summer and I hope to see you in WalMart!
