Continuing a tradition I started last year, I asked 4th grade students to use the school FlipCams and record a "farewell" message to Hillside School and their teachers. This video will be shown at their end-of-year 4th grade assembly, where teachers and some parents gather. They were asked to say a short goodbye, using such sentence starters as "I will always remember when..." or "Thank you, _____ for...." or "In 4th grade I learned..." They could also just speak from their own heart.
The finished video will soon be available on the Mt. Laurel Family Portal (password protected), so check back around the end of the school year (June 21)!
