    Good Morning Parents !  Just a quick update.
    There are no books to pick up for  our classroom. I've checked everyones desk and all the children have their Readers. We are at the school planning and more info will be posted soon. We are in the process of setting up a private site where we can all communicate with each other as we naviagte through these challenging days.  That info will be  posted by the end of the day today.

     In an abundanche of caution, we have unfortunely made the decision to cancel our trip to Sweetbriar on April 21st. Your checks will be returned to you.

    Additionally, the First Grade liturgy which was scheduled for March 21st will be rescheduled. We do not have a new date as yet, we will advise as soon as  a new date has been scheduled. 

    During the week that we are closed, please have the children go on to read the next story in the reader, The Big Trip. The children should make flashcards for the new Words to Know and become fluent with them.  Additionally Spelling City Assignments have been updated for next weeks story, please work on these assignments throughout the week. Children should access the Fact Monster online resource to reinforce their Math Skills. 
    The following resources are also available for free access at this time and should be utilized for further Reading, as well as Science and Social Studies skills:

    It is important to view the school homepage and our class webpage daily, as new information will be posted frequently.

    Please be sure your child knows how they are getting home from school each day. If there is a change in your child's normal plan,  please send a note in their Red folder indicating how they will be arriving home.
    Each day we will have afternoon snack, please send a small healthy snack and water for your child each day. You may also send your child with a refillable water bottle that they will be able to keep at their desk.If your child is bringing lunch from home, please be sure to pack their lunch and snack separately. 

    Please be sure that anything you send to school is clearly labeled with your child's name, particularly their School sweatshirts and sweaters. The children often take them off during Gym or recess and if they are not labeled we have no way of knowing which is theirs. 

    Each Friday the children will brung home their pencil cases to sharpen their pencils for the upcoming week, please hekp them to sharpen them and return to school on Mondays. The children should always have 12 sharpened pencils in their case. Thank you !
