Let the Holidays Begin!!

by stevebrown on June 8, 2018

It was a bittersweet goodbye this morning. We were all happy it was the beginning of the summer holidays, but it was also the last class meeting for the 4E Emojis. Being their last year at CDNIS, we all agreed it should be Corey and Penny’s last chance to host a morning meeting. We shared what we were going to miss about 4E (I said the view from the classroom, the Emojis and the joy of teaching on a daily basis), followed by the students handing out certificates of appreciation that made for one another. It was a nice final class meeting.

I’d like to thank all the parents for the generous gift. It was a pleasure teaching all the Emojis…I’d do it again next year, if I could!

Below is a superb video the students made for me. Much appreciated!!

Just a small housekeeping note from Ms Makky to unsubscribe from our blog at the end of the year. Instructions for how to unsubscribe to their child’s teacher blog can be found here.

Wishing everyone a relaxing and fun-filled summer holidays!
