Welcome to November! The cooler weather is upon us, along with the mid-point of the second nine weeks!
Please see the dates listed below regarding important events happening during the upcoming weeks...
- November 4: Holiday Pictures- Students may wear holiday attire if they are having pictures taken, but they must bring sneakers for P.E.
- November 12: Our field trip! Students bringing a lunch from home need to have it in a Ziploc bag labeled with their name. Chaperones are also responsible for bringing their own lunches. Please have students wear a BLUE uniform shirt.
- November 18: Heritage Dolls are due! This is such a fun project for first graders and their families to work on together. It is a way for them to learn about their heritage and share what they learn with the class! The dolls were sent home on Tuesday, November 4th with all directions and requirements. As stated in the school handbook, any school project assigned more than two weeks in advance are not accepted if turned in late. I cannot wait to see the dolls as they start to come in!
- November 21: Last day before fall break- Students and teachers are on break the week of November 24-28. We will see you on December 1st!
I would like to encourage parents to make sure that students are practicing tying their shoes at home. This is actually a first grade standard for P.E. and students will be tested on this skill later in the year. Many students are already able to do this, but some are still working on it. Thank you for your support with this!
As always, please continue to read baggy books, complete reading notebooks, and work on library books at home! Your children are doing a great job with this new challenge! Also, please continue to support your children with the reading comprehension homework on Tuesday nights. I ask that you please let your student try to do this on his/her own before you check and help. This gives them an opportunity to learn and grow!
Please let me know if you have ANY questions as our year goes on. I am always available via email (see link below). You and I are a team, and I appreciate you giving me the opportunity to work with you and your child. I am looking forward to a great year with you! We are going to have so much fun!
