Good afternoon parents,
We are really getting into the swing of things now! This week, we practiced building our reading stamina, we started math, we learned how to use the iPads, and so much more! Next week, we will celebrate our first *STAR STUDENT* (Asher!!), we will get our first classroom jobs, and we will learn how to go book shopping in our classroom library! After that, we are pretty much done with the "housekeeping" things!
A few reminders:
Enjoy the long weekend! Happy Rosh Hashanah!
What a busy day we've had today and what a busy week we have ahead! Here are a few reminders:
Have a wonderful week! As usual, feel free to email me with any questions, comments, or concerns. Thanks!
I am so sorry but I made a mistake- I thought that we had Gym on Day 2 this year, but we have it on Day 4! I apologize for the confusion! That means that Gym is on FRIDAY this week.
Please complete the First Grade Parent Questionnaire if you haven't done so already, thanks!
We had such a fun day today! We learned about our new lockers, read some really cool books (First Day Jitters, The Teacher from the Black Lagoon, and First Grade Stinks), made new friends, practiced walking in the hallway, and so much more! Don't forget, tomorrow we have GYM!
Thank you SO MUCH for sending so much of the school supplies on the first day! It makes it so much more manageable for me. I also really appreciate the extra supplies that were sent in. Thank you so much!
The kids have simple homework tonight- you can send it in tomorrow, Thursday, or even Friday is fine. Please see the brown paper bag with the note attached in their Take Home folders. Please don't send in any food or anything super delicate or expensive. These ORANGE TAKE HOME FOLDERS need to be returned to school daily and checked/emptied, by you, daily. Thanks!
Parents, you have homework, too! PLEASE write down two emergency phone numbers on your child's backpack tag. This is VERY important. These are numbers that we will use in case of an emergency at the end of the day or if no one shows up to pick up your child.
Well, I think that's all for now! I hope everyone gets a good night's sleep and will return to school tomorrow well-rested and ready for another fun day! Check out my photos page to see some First Day of School pictures!
I hope everyone is ready for the first day of school on Tuesday! I can't believe it's already here.
We will certainly have a lot to cover next week so I thought I'd post a brief message with some first day/week of school information to keep everyone in the loop.
Well, I think that just about covers it! Again, please let me know via email if you have any pressing concerns before the first day on Tuesday. I hope everyone enjoys their Labor Day weekend!
