As we round the corner into the final full week here at Lower Devo, we pause to reflect on all of the growth, challenges, and successes we have experienced together this year as a learning community. We encourage you to take some time with your own student(s) and share in their reflections of their own time at Lower Devo this year. Some prompts that can help your conversation start flowing: What are some of your accomplishments/best memories? What were some unexpected opportunities that shifted your learning/friendships? What did you put the most of your time/effort into this year? How does what happened this year help you plan for next year?
We are excited to celebrate all our hard work together on Tuesday, June 14th during our Field Day games. K-2 along with Grade 6 will participate in games from 8:30 - 10:00a and Grades 3-5 will gather from 12:00 - 1:30p. Our day of celebration will conclude with Grade 6 Games from 1:40 - 2:30p. Students in each grade level should plan to wear the following colors on Tuesday:
Kindergarten: Light Blue
Grade 1: Red
Grade 2: Green
Grade 3: Orange
Grade 4: Purple
Grade 5: Dark Blue
Grade 6: Black and Yellow
This coming week will be emotional for us all. Together we will say goodbye to classmates who will leave for other schools and places both near and across the globe to continue their learning. We will walk out the front steps on Monday June 20th for the last time for the next two years. The end of the school year transition can be an overwhelming and stressful time for many us without the added experience of moving and preparing for a full renovation and reconstruction of our school building. As each student and staff member prepares to say goodbye to Devo in their own way, we must remember to be patient and kind with each other, recognizing that for many members of our community Monday will mark much more than just the last day of school. We are so proud of all the work, effort, and dedication to community and learning that each of our students and teachers have shown this year. We know that all of us will carry the Devo spirit with us into the summer and to Lower Devo, Upper Devo, or other school communities in September.
We wish you all a peaceful, relaxing, happy summer filled with joyful moments and chances to show the world just how awesome each of you are!

It has been a spectacular first year at Upper Devotion. Thanks to all the students, faculty and staff for being part of such a thriving and exciting learning community. Next year we will twice as large with grades 5-8!
Grades 5 and 6 will receive a placement letter during the fist week of July, 2016. Grades 7 and 8 students will learn who their advisor is on the first day of school. In addition, all students and families will receive information about Upper Devotion, including buses in August.
Rest, relax, recharge and have a blast!
