We had a very exciting week! Two of our fifth-grade students went to orientation at the middle schools they will attend next year. They came back from the visit very excited about middle school! Wednesday was our Blue Out, with everyone wearing an Autism Awareness shirt during community time. One of our students was a big help during community time, explaining what it was like to have autism. She did a wonderful job, and the entire day was certainly filled with a lot of support from the staff and students!
If you pay a dollar on the last two Fridays of this month, students can wear their Autism Awareness shirts and the money will be collected to buy Autism Awareness books for the Library.
Whitney Rockafellow, the originally scheduled ASD teacher, was able to join us on Wednesday as well, and the kids were excited to meet her! As you may remember from the note that was sent home, she and I will teach Monday, the 17th, together, and that will be my last day.
I am very grateful to have spent time with the kids here at Lakewood, and I will miss them so much!
Thursday afternoon ended the week with a musical performance by our fourth-graders. It was very fun and exciting for everyone, and a great way to end the day!
