As we come to the close of another year, there is so much happening at Haviland Avenue School! Friday, June 1 is “Moving Up Day”. This is an annual event to help promote smooth transitions for all of our students. Every grade has the opportunity to move up and meet the teachers of the next grade, visit the classrooms and learn all the exciting things in store for them in the new school year. Second Grade Students have a special treat as they take the bus to visit Mansion Avenue School, and their new Principal, Mrs. Smeltzer.  June 1, is also the last Spirit Day of the year.

Mrs. Graham has set up the week of June 4th as Career Days at Haviland. We look forward to welcoming guest speakers who will share information about the important work they do every day and how our students can begin to prepare now for future careers.

Remember that the last four days of school—June 14-19 are all 12:20 Dismissal Days.

We are happy to announce that our school library will be open on Tuesdays from July 3 to July 31, 11:30PM-2:30PM.  Mrs. Terlingo will be on hand to help students, accompanied by an adult, in selecting their books. So there is no excuse for not doing your “summer reading”! We hope our newest kindergartners will take advantage of this opportunity to visit their new school and become familiar with it over the summer.

I hope you will use your summer break to have fun, relax, travel with your family, enjoy a few good books, and be ready for a new and exciting learning experience in September.

Finally—As of July 1, I will be officially retired from the Audubon School district. Please know that working with you to educate your children has been the joy of my life for the past 16 years. I leave behind a legacy of which I am proud. Together with the outstanding and dedicated Haviland staff—we have made miracles happen every day. Please continue to always EXPECT MIRACLES. Thanks for the memories!
