Aloha and Summer Reading!

Posted on May 22, 2017

by Ms. Holzman on May 22, 2017

Hope you enjoyed our spring conferences as much as I did. As we close this school year, I'd like to thank you for sharing your child with me on a daily basis; I truly enjoy my job!

My "week of lunch" was truly spectacular! I enjoyed it more than I can tell you. I felt so spoiled by the lavish salads, treats and drinks!

As we discussed in most of our conferences last week, here is a list of great books to read over the summer. Feel free to print out the list below. If you can remember, jot down their favorite books. Then have your child see me at the beginning of next year to let me know which books they really enjoyed!

If they read one that is NOT on the list, and feel it should be, please write the name and author so I can add it to the list next year!

Have a wonderful, relaxing and safe summer...
