Grade 1 News

Dear Parents,

Here are some reminders for the FINAL week of 1st grade!

All students will be bringing home a large packet of worksheets from their Math class on Friday.  These are the lessons that we did not complete in class.  These worksheets are not for “homework” over the summer, but just to have for extra practice for next year.  

Field Day
1st grade will be having Field Day on Tuesday May 22 from 1:30-3:15.  Please be sure to have your child bring sunscreen that he/she can apply themselves.  Teachers will not be able to apply sunscreen to your student due to health safety.  
Also, please be sure to have your student bring a water bottle that day.  We will keep our fingers crossed that the weather stays nice!  Hot lunch will be served to elementary students on Field Day as normal.

Classroom Cleaning
Students will be cleaning out their desks on Wednesday.  Please have your child bring a large bag or pillowcase to school to bring all their supplies home.  

Last Day of School
We can’t believe that our last week of 1st grade is already approaching!  The last day of school is Thursday May 24.  This day is a regular schedule day from 8:05-3:35.  All of us have had an amazing time teaching and watching your children grow and learn this year!  Thank you for your help and support!

Red Ribbon Helicopter
Yesterday the U.S. Army joined us to celebrate Red Ribbon Week.  The students were able to view the helicopter landing on the turf from the windows inside the building.  Once it safely landed, students were able to go outside and view the Army helicopter up close and meet the officers.

Have a great weekend and Happy Summer!
