So much going on....

We have been very busy ending the school year. Jim Arnosky has come and gone, but his books and songs will forever be in the minds of those students and teachers who had the opportunity to experience his presentation on May 23. I am so happy we were able to have such an accomplished author, illustrator, musician, wildlife watcher and just all around great person come and visit our school.

Highcroft will also convert to a single track, year round school this coming year. All huskies will run on track 4. I have to say I am very pleased with this decision. I can actually track out like other teachers and students and enjoy time with my family. All work and no play makes one grumpy.

The library blog will continue next school year. But most importantly, the library will continue to focus on helping students find good fit books and experience read alouds which supports the curriculum.

Enjoy your next few weeks. See you on July 28 during Meet the Teacher time. Remember August 1 is the first day of school for grades 1-5. (Kindergarten is staggered throughout the week.)

Happy Reading,

Mrs. Wetherell
