    Well, it's that time of year again.  The TV commercials are telling us it's Back To School time.  I don't know about you, but I'm not quite ready yet.

    I wanted to inform you that you'll be in my classroom, Room 226.  I'm looking forward to meeting you on Monday, August 29.  Sixth grade is a really great year, and I can't wait to help make it the best for you.  The first couple of days we'll be doing a lot of "getting to know you" activities and we'll also be decorating our classroom with some of your artwork.  If you haven't gotten a chance to check the sixth grade supply list, take a look at it.  The list asks for six pocket folders, but I never need you to have that many.  I only ask that you bring in a pocket folder to use as your "take home" folder.  It can be any color or design.  We have lots of extra supplies at school, so if you forget anything, we've got you covered.

    This summer I enjoyed some family time at the beach in North Carolina.   I got a chance to read lots of great books, and I also spent a lot of time walking my German Shepherd, Jovie. She loves taking walks in the mornings and then jumping in her baby pool when the afternoons get hot.

    I hope you have had a fantastic summer break.  I hope you had a chance to go somewhere fun.  I wonder what good books you might have read.  I don't know if you have a dog, a cat, or a hermit crab, but I'm curious to find out.  I’m anxious to meet you and hear about your summer activities and adventures. 

    I think it’s still safe to say that sixth grade will probably be your favorite year at Groveland. 

    Enjoy the last weeks of summer and I'll see you soon,
