204 End of the Year Notes

Dear 204 Families,

Many thanks for all you’ve done throughout the year to help support your child in his/her personal learning as well as the helpful and very generous donations of snacks, wet wipes, extra scholarship funds etc. that helped keep all of 204 going on a daily basis.

I hope you felt a glimpse into your child’s learning through the portfolio work they shared with you on Monday.  In the next few days
you’ll receive an end of the year progress report from me via snail mail as well.

The one thing I am sure I’ll never see is a school year when I accomplish all I wish I could with my students.  To that end here are a few “extra” learning opportunities connected to our MN history studies you may enjoy as a family this summer:

The Mill City Museum is featuring a short film (included with admission) entitled “Minneapolis in 19 Minutes Flat” – a short history of our City of Lakes.

Enjoy a pretty summer afternoon or evening stroll on the Nicollet Mall between 4th and 13th  to observe the manhole covers created as works of public art to celebrate nature in MN.

It’s the 100th anniversary of the Split Rock Lighthouse.  They have special events planned all summer.  Their calendar is available by checking through the MN Department of Natural Resources website.

The Hinckley Fire Museum would be an easy day trip.

The MN History Center in St. Paul is full of great exhibits.  I especially recommend the Ben Franklin Exhibit, The Greatest Generation exhibit, and the MN 150.

I wish you all a summer full of everyday “wonders” and the time to enjoy them together.

Remember: Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.

P.S.  There are still a few stray items of clothing and projects left here in the room.  I will be at school through Friday if you wish to stop by and pick something up.
