Miss Murphy's First Grade Class


May 27, 2019

Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe we are down to our final few days of First Grade!! It seems like your little one was just entering my classroom and now it's the end of the year...where did the year go?? I want to thank each one of you for all of the support and help you have provided throughout the year.

This Friday is the last day of school and the children will attend school from 8:35-12:25. Our class party will be from 10:45-11:45 on the grass in front of the MPR. Please contact Rima Switzer if you have any questions regarding the party. She sent out a Sign Up Genius last week. Also, please make sure your child brings his/her backpack to school every day - especially on Friday as lots of stuff will be coming home! Report cards will be sent home on Friday and in addition, look for a special writing book the children will bring home on Wednesday. I saved a piece of their monthly writing and complied all of their writings throughout the school year into a book as a special First grade keepsake for you and your child to enjoy :)

A big thank you to Stephanie Reed for being our Room Mom this year and for all of the "behind the scene" work she did for our class and for me. I also want to thank Rima Switzer for being our Party Coordinator and planning all of our parties this year. Thank you, ladies!  To all of the parents who volunteered in the classroom, library, on the playground and even did "at home" projects, I couldn't have done it without your help...THANK YOU!

Over the course of the year, the children and I had lots of laughs and shared so many memorable moments together. I am amazed at their academic and social growth since last August. Good-byes are never easy, but I also know my job in now done and it is time to stand back and watch my kiddos continue to SOAR as through the grades they go! It has been a pleasure being your child's teacher this year!

Here's to a fabulous final week in 1st Grade and a wonderful summer :)
