June, 2015 Relax, Have Fun, But Don’t Forget!
Somehow, it always happens—the long, long months of winter that we just know
are never going to end have left us. We have sunshine, warmth, and green grass.
It’s hard to believe, but spring, and soon summer will be here! The classrooms and
halls at school will empty and we send the children out into the sunshine and back to
their homes and our community to play and relax and grow. Enjoy this summer with
your child. Pick an activity or a location you have never experienced and do it
together! Celebrate the break in routine and have fun.
Your children worked hard this year. Don’t let them forget everything they
have accomplished. Keep them sharp--Have them read just 30 minutes a day. Your
kids can send postcards to friends and relatives when you visit new locations. Give
them math puzzles to figure out as you travel to your summer location. Just like
exercise is good for our bodies, brain exercise keeps our minds sharp and ready for
My wish for each of you this summer is health, happiness, and fun. Here is a great summer poem written by a child that sums it all up.
Hello, Summer! -- (A Last Day of School Poem)
You can find me at the beach...
Or in the park or at the pool
Or any place that isn’t school.
Hello days packed full of sports
And days when I’m just lazybones
While eating melty ice cream cones.
Goodbye, homework --
There’s so, so much I wanna do.
I know the school year flew on past…
But please, please summer -- last and last.
