June 12, 2015 Friday Parent Letter
June 12, 2015
Happy Friday! It was an extraordinary week at GeneseeSTEMAcademy! Our week ended with a phenomenal social studies lesson for all students as they traveled to various destinations around the world! The GSTEMA international travelers went to Trinidad, Korea, Australia, Italy, China, Egypt, South Africa, France, and Mexico. They learned about special characteristics unique to that country, experienced a little taste of food from their culture and enjoyed music, dancing, and crafts with lots of laughter! What a glorious day to celebrate diversity. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to our first class staff that planned and implemented this wonderful hands-on integrated learning adventure. We were blessed to have several parents and guests join the day, your support and participation is greatly appreciated!
Next week we celebrate our 6th grade and Kindergarten students’ successful completion of their grade level standards and transition to the next phase of their educational journey. We are very proud of their success! Please, make sure you return the invitation indicating the number of your guest; we want to make sure we have enough chairs and cake for everyone to enjoy.
Students’ final report card will be mailed home. Please, make sure we have your correct summer mailing address on file. See Mrs. Harvey to make any corrections.
School Dismissal is a very busy time. Please, make sure you drive all the way back and not park on the side near our entrance. We want to keep traffic flowing and avoid any accidents. We appreciate your support.
We have three field trips scheduled; please make sure we have their permission slips and $5.00 admission money for Potter Park Zoo (K-3rd grade). If you have any questions about the trips please contact our office. Students who are suspended starting June 4th will not be permitted to attend any end of year field trips or participate in Field Day. Students will be assigned to a study room with work for the entire day or you can elect to keep them at home.
