Welcome to Mrs. Butterworth's Class!
It is with a heavy heart that I write my last Weekly update of the 2014-15 school year. I hope you have found this page helpful in keeping you informed about your scholar's learnings in Room 20.
Each student brought with them knowledge, kindness, willingness to learn, responsibility, respect, understanding and perseverance this year. It was not always an easy task to be in a combination class, but we all leaned on each other as we challenged ourselves each day in different ways.
To the 5th graders I say, " Best of luck as you move onto new experiences in middle school. I know you will not be far away and look forward to seeing your smiling faces when you return on special visits and say, "Everyone looks so little!" or "I remember doing that!" I know you will continue to make great choices and make a difference in yourselves and your world!!"
To my 4th graders I say, " You are leaving this room with so much more responsibility! You have shown that you are respectful and can be looked up to as you become the SLAM representatives next year. You are role models for all to emulate. I am proud of the achievements you have made in all areas and look forward to watching you in your new roles next year. Some of you will go on to other classes, where you will continue to shine! Continue to put your best foot forward and learn from all of those around you. Make yourself smarter today then you were yesterday!
This last week will be a blur as we end with many fun activities and prepare for a well needed vacation. On Friday I will be hosting an ice cream sundae bar with all the toppings to congratulate all of the students on a YEAR WELL DONE! If you know you will not be here on the last day, please let me know so that I can send home the report card earlier. This week students will be bringing home items from their desks. If you sign off that you took a quick look at their various journals they can earn additional anchor tickets that they can use at our Malcom Mall. I hope they remember to ask you!
