Last Week with Mrs. Farley

Wow! I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by! I have such mixed emotions about the end of the school year. I have put off writing this last blog as long as possible, just because I feel like it means I am saying “goodbye” to MY kids. But… I look forward to all they will accomplish in the years ahead and can’t wait for them to come into my room next year and give me a hug!

Another week down, y’all, the time is just flying by! I know the 4th graders did their best on both the Math and ELA SBAC tests over the last 2 weeks and I’m so proud of them.
