Today we had a Mary Celebration in the gym and we got to eat cake after. We are looking forward to the Meet the Teacher tonight. Students had library and will be reading their book for their book report that is due the end of September. This is a home assignment so please help your child. Read 20 - 30 minutes.
Parents, just a reminder that there is a book report due at the end of the month. The book report sheet was sent home in the plastic reading folder. Scholastic book orders were sent home last night. Please return them by September 20, 2013. Please read with your child for 20-30 minutes. The school BBQ and Mary celebration are tomorrow.
Students are bringing home some important updates from the school today. You should have also received a picture form last night from your child. If you haven't already signed up for Remind 101 please do that with the passcode given in the class newsletter. Have a great weekend.
Children need to find three items to put into the treasure chest bag that they made today. These items should be special to them. We had a class celebration today and we learned about rocks. Read 20 - 30 minutes.
Today we spent the day collecting data about our classmates and then we made some bar graphs. Students performed a Reader's Theatre and went to their first gym class. Parent's please read the newsletter that was sent home yesterday and sign and return the last page. I would appreciate it if you join remind 101 so that we have better communication throughout the year.
What a wonderful day! Students got to meet their classmates and they reviewed the procedures in the classroom as well as the school. We didn't have time to complete the bag activity that was placed in the newsletter. We will do this tomorrow. Students read the book, " Have you filled a bucket today?" They were taught the importance of loving each other and accepting everyone into their circle of friends. I am so excited. What a fabulous group of students and parents!
