News from Claudio and LB

As I write this I am looking forward to our last few weeks, full of fun trips and our special end-of-the-year events, like our overnight at school and our graduation potluck, when the 2nd graders each give a little graduation speech and the class sings for their families. We are visiting three commercial caves. When I taught with Michele Mattoon we used to do our cave unit every other year (for 18 years!). Now it’s been a while and I’m ready to enjoy the caves again and especially to see our kids’ reactions to that beautiful and mysterious world.

This is also a time to feel a little sad about saying good-bye to our second graders, most of whom we’ve been with day after day for a long time! It’s always a big adjustment.
We want to remind you all that it’s super important that your child continue to read over the summer, especially if their skills are tender, because they can easily lose ground if they stop regular practice. The public library has a summer reading program with lots of incentives. Check them out in person or on their website.

Wishing you all a lovely summer,
