Once again, we find ourselves at the end of the school year, wondering where it went. While the year seems to have flown by, I know that each day has been well spent. As I visit classrooms and participate in events such as Field Day and end of year classroom celebrations, I am keenly aware of how much each child has grown over the course of the year. I remember our Kindergarteners on the first day of school, so unsure of themselves and their new surroundings. Now I see how they have blossomed, and have become happy and confident in their surroundings. Our first graders, who were just learning to read, are now fluent and excited for the adventures that await them in each book they open. Our second grade students have become amazing mathematicians and their fluency with numbers astounds me. The third grade class has transformed themselves, leaving the primary grades and now firmly entrenched as elementary students. They have become amazing authors this year. Our fourth grade students are becoming young adults and more sophisticated learners, and it is exciting to see them demonstrate their learning with technology, which is complemented by their outstanding presentation skills. Finally, I see our fifth grade students, who are excited to finish their years at Errickson and ready to embark on a new journey into middle school. As I walked around the building recently and made note of how our students have grown, I realized how lucky I am to be a part of it all. I always say I have the best job ever!
I would also like to extend a special Errickson "GOOD LUCK" to our fifth grade students and to all of our children and parents who will be changing schools next year. I will miss you all. I hope that Errickson School will hold a special place in your heart. Although I will miss you, I am confident that each of our Errickson graduates will make us proud as they move on to middle school.
As the summer days approach, I encourage you to spend as much time with your children as possible. They are only young once and grow up all too quickly. On behalf of the entire staff, I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing, safe and healthy summer. I will see you in September!
