See You Later Alligator

Dear First Grade Families,
     It's finally here-summer! I cannot believe our year in first grade is already over. One last thank you to all the boys and girls for their continuous hard work this school year. Thank you also to the parents for your support and encouragement from home, as well as, all our faithful blog followers.  We loved all the times you visited our classroom as guests, mystery readers, or helpers.
     Today, I give you back the same child you sent to school last fall a few inches taller, a few months wiser, more responsible and more mature. Although this growth would have happened anyway, it has been my pleasure to watch them develop every day. Having spent this school year together we have grown close and we will always share a little piece of each other.
     We have lived, loved, laughed, and learned together this year. I wish it could continue but I must send them on. Remember, I will always be interested in your child's future, wherever they go, whatever they do. Their joys and sorrows I will always be happy to share. Enjoy your summer and don't forget to read!
Love always,
Miss Klipfel
         Hello 1st graders                                                        Goodbye my good friends


  1. Dear Miss Klipfel,

    We love you! Your passion for teaching is such a gift to all of these kids! All of the things our son has learned in first grade have really been amazing. You keep things fun and exciting for each and every one of them. And we feel so fortunate that our other son will have the honor of being in your classroom next year. If you could hear Liam telling Carter about each and every detail of all the fun adventures to come.....You have made such a positive impression, and we are soooo grateful to you!

    Also, our entire family has loved keeping up on the details of first grade through your blog, another gift! Enjoy your summer! See you in the fall!

    The Stepanick Family :)

    1. You are so sweet! Thank you very much for your kind words and all the Stepanick support from near and far. See you again in September. :)
