Wow! I can't believe that today was the last day of school. This year flew by! I am very proud of all of the students. Roomers and zoomers worked hard and were always so flexible. Sometimes technology was our friend and sometimes it was not, but we kept a growth mindset and tackled all of our obstacles. Remember that everyone makes mistakes. That's why we have erasers on our pencils. I hope you have a terrific summer filled with fun..... and some reading, writing and math practice, too!

On Saturday, we celebrated my nephew's 7th birthday. He will be starting second grade in September like many of you! We had a nice day with our family. It started to rain at night time. The thunder was loud and the lightning lit up the sky, but we were safe and dry inside. Do you like summer thunderstorms?

My niece, Charlotte, was baptized this weekend. She wore a beautiful gown made from her grandmother's wedding dress. We all enjoyed the day with our family. Here is a picture of my family - my parents, my brothers and their wives, my nephews and my niece. I am on the right and Nicholas is next to me. Have you celebrated any special occasions this summer?

We celebrated my nephew’s birthday this weekend. Andrew will turn 6 next week. He had a Star Wars themed birthday party and even though it was very hot this weekend, we enjoyed celebrating in the backyard. Spending time with family is one of my favorite things to do on the weekends!

Nicholas made the high school soccer team and he has been very busy practicing and getting ready for the season. The team practices six days a week! Today was their first scrimmage. They won 5-0 against Saint Joseph’s in Metuchen. I enjoyed watching Nicholas in action.

I can’t believe the end of August is here! I have been setting up the classroom, which is Room 303 in the second grade hallway. The student desks are ready and so are the bulletin boards. I have some more to do, but I can’t wait until September 9th when the empty room will be filled with students. It is going to be a great year!
