Friday June 26, 2020: You!
Dear Team 2,
This afternoon, I’ll be reading your last Check Out and Hand In responses. This part of distance learning always makes me happy, and it will be the perfect way to start my summer.
That’s right. Summer. It’s the last day of Grade 2! The next time you go to school, it will be as a Grade 3 student. What a year we had together.
We had 113 days of school in a classroom together, and we distanced ourselves from each other for 105 calendar days.
Seven children joined our class from other schools this year. One moved away to a new school. Many children moved houses but stayed at our school.
Several children have new babies at their house. Everyone lost some teeth, grew taller, stronger bodies, wore out shoes, grew a few sizes and had a few hair cuts.
When I look at our class picture from the start of the year, I see so many growing-up changes. But mostly, I see Team 2. I see the most special teaching year I’ve every had. I see learning and resilience and bravery. I see your parents, and the relationships I’ve been able to build with families this year. I see strength. I see awesome. I see YOU!
My dear class, it has been an honour and privilege to work with you and to call you my own for an entire year.
You can change the world.
Love, Miss Versteeg
