Good morning. Down the stretch they come! Please join us in encouraging your student(s) to finish the school year strong. This time of year can be especially challenging due to all of the testing they have to endure; and they’ve been challenged enough this year. We are doing our best to have a “normal” end of the year but with COVID restrictions, it has been tough coming up with field trip ideas.

All remote learners are invited (and encouraged!) to join in on any class field trip and participate in Field Day on June 21. Just let me know and I can relay it to the grade level team.

Within the next two weeks, I hope to send out the registration form for our Summer Academies. It will be important to note that we plan on having “mask wearing” optional for all summer programs. That, of course, could change by the time they begin in July.

Our million word reader list is expanding! Benson Chen still leads the way with over 4 million words but we now have three 3-million word readers (David Hanson, Addy Guyer & Alyssa McKenna)! And six 2-million word readers (Georgia Eckhardt, Maria Tilley, Lilly Sanborn, Rachel Beck, Jade Nicolas & Kaylee Gard). Our million word readers have reached 20 (Ben Wolpin, Jasmine Stewart, Susanna Tilley, Elijah Moneysmith, Kyle Gandini, Penelope Clark, Addison Stroud, Ella Poire, Tucker Crawford, Daniel Chen, Devon Onos, Lamija Pintol, Isabella Dalzell, Lucas Wheeler, Abigail Panker, Anna Coapland, Easton St. Cyr, Sophia Comeau, Daniel Kitto & Sydney Boudreau). Nice work, all of you!

The PTA is having a T-Shirt Design Contest for their Hike-A-Thon Fundraiser. The winner gets a shirt, a picture in the paper and a $100 Amazon gift card! Students can send their designs to me or to gilforddistrictpta@gmail.com I have attached a flyer for more information.

Lastly, at this time of year we start to look to see if we have any students who have not missed a single day of school (remote learners included) all year long. There are currently 20 students who have not missed a day of school all year! In a “normal” year this would be a high number but with COVID this makes it even more impressive. And there are 13 who have only missed 1 day of school. Amazing! Kind of like our staff: Amazing!!

On that note, I hope you have an amazing weekend.

Take care,
