Sent August 26th 2018

Good afternoon!  It's hard to believe that we're already finishing up our first month of first grade.  Time sure does fly. This week we will have Spelling words with the digraphs /th/ and /sh/.  I was very pleased with the handwriting improvement that I saw on last week's test.   We are going to continue our work with story elements--characters, setting, and plot.  We will also start summarizing our reading too. In STEM we are going to be building and naming numbers up to 1,...

It is really hard to believe that there are only 2 days of first grade left.  This year has flown by! Your students have made tremendous growth and are ready for 2nd grade.  Please encourage them to keep reading daily (fill out the reading log for an ice cream treat when we return in August) and to practice their math facts. Tomorrow (Tuesday) from 9-9:30am we will have an Awards program for first grade students in the gym.  You are all invited to attend; however, if you can't attend, I will send h...

Field DAY and Field TRIP

Sent May 22nd 2018

Today I'm sending home a reminder about Field Day and the Field Trip.   For Field Day on WEDNESDAY--students must wear tennis shoes.  If they don't they will not be able to participate due to safety concerns.  I would also suggest putting some sunscreen on them or sending some that I can have them put on.  If you have a water bottle, that would be something that they can have outside with them. For the Field TRIP on FRIDAY--students will be both inside and outside so please have your ...

Our Field Day is on Wednesday, May 23rd.  We are needing several more volunteers.  Field Day is a lot of fun.  The students work through a variety of stations on the playground and have a lot of fun doing so.  If you can help out, please do so.  I am attaching 2 documents from Mr. Beattie about Field Day.  Even if you can't get off work to help, please read through the reminders with your child.  We want everyone to have a safe and fun time.   Thanks for your help! ...

Tomorrow our class will have lunch catered by the Olive Garden.  This is our reward for raising the most money in the school for Pennies for Patients.  I gave the students some hints about the lunch today but some have not figured it out yet.  Just wanted to let you know.
