End of the year note for parents 6/5/13

End of the year third grade math packet

Summer Reading Packet 2013

6/4/2013

Dear Parents,

I wanted to send you a personal note of thank you. I have received so many kind words, gifts, and help from so many of you this year. I have been genuinely proud to have taught your children this year.  If there is anything I can do to assist in the future, please contact me. I do check my email from time to time over the summer.

Your child has an RAZ Kids account and Moby Max account. Please take advantage of these. RAZ Kids is a wonderful resource for reading practice. Moby Max is fantastic for math but is also adding more subject areas. I would suggest that you please have your child log into the math portion as often as possible for extra practice. I will be checking up on it from home as well in case their account needs any updates.

Also, I did let the students know that I accepted a new position in the West Geauga Local Schools for next year. I will be changing positions and will be the Technology Integration Specialist. With this new position, I will have the chance to work at all four buildings with our amazing staff to help with their efforts to integrate technology for student learning. After having this class, it was a very hard decision but it’s a challenge that I am very excited about. It will also give me an opportunity to see them well beyond their time at Westwood. I wanted them to hear it from me so that they weren’t shocked next year. I also felt it would be helpful for them to have a chance to ask me questions.

In closing, I truly wanted to thank you for raising such wonderful children. I truly valued my time with them. This year went so fast for me. I hope they had the same experience.

Have a great summer,

Mr. Whelan
