Dear Parents,   
         How lucky I am to have had such a wonderful group of children. I truly love each and every one of them for their uniqueness, smiles, discussions, points of view, heartaches, and what I have learned from them. I hope each of my students realizes how awesome they are, and that they can do anything they try to do. I hope they enter Fourth Grade with excitement, skills, and a love for learning and making new friends.
         I want to thank all of the parents who were able to help with anything and everything. I am very thankful for a great room mom and for all that she did to make this such a great year.

     We are almost complete with covering all of our third grade skills in reading, spelling, language, science, social studies, math, and writing. We still have a few skills left to learn and also prep for LEAP 2025 in May. Please continue to reinforce academic skills, including their homework, throughout the remainder of our school year at Magnolia Trace.

     My students have learned what a “Bucket Filler” is and how important it is to fill someone else’s bucket with many positive comments. Please fill their buckets forever and encourage them to do the same.
In the words of Christopher Robin to Pooh and to my students:
 “Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
