Can you believe we are already into our last month of school?  My, how time flies when you're having fun!  Your children have come so far and learned so much.  I am very proud of them and happy to have been their teacher this year. This school year has flown by and I have enjoyed every minute of it! Don't quit on them now though.  Continue to work with them through this last month and revel in their accomplishments!
