Great First Day!

We had an awesome first day! We read about First Day Jitters and how we all felt the first day. We also practiced car/bus rider procedures, lunch room procedures and how to be a champ in line. We also learned about quiet critters, tickets and many other classroom procedures as well. I am so excited about our second day of school!

New Year!

Hello everyone, I am so excited about this new school year! I am looking forward to meeting you all on Thursday, August 18th at 4:00-5:00 for Meet the Teacher. Even though the summer seems to go by so fast, and I enjoyed every minute of it, I am ready to start the new school year. I know we are going to have an awesome year!!

Spelling and Homework

There will not be any more spelling test or math homework. Your child will still need to read at least 20 minutes a night and have their reading log signed as well as their fluency poem.
Thank you for helping your child with their homework durning the school year.

Class Picture Day

Class Picture Day is Wednesday, May 4th. I am sending home an envelope today for those of you that would like to order a class picture. Please send the money in the envelope to school with your child. The cost is $10.00 and that includes (1) 8×10 Class Photo and (1) 5×7 Fun Shot. The money is due by Friday, May 13th. Cash only, no checks.

Field Trip to Penick Park

*We will present our recycling projects in our classroom at 8:30. The students have worked so hard on them. They can’t wait to share them with you.
*We will leave on the bus at 9:00 to head to Penick Park.
*You may join us at the park, but you must drive your own car.
*Have your child wear tennis shoes and a White Oak shirt, if you have one.
*We will be outside all day, so apply sunscreen to your child before coming to school if you would like.
*Please send your child’s lunch in a disposable sack with their name on it. If you send a bottle of gatorade, label it as well.
*You may sign your child out at the end of the day. Please make sure to have that documented with their teacher.
*We will leave Penick Park to come back to the school at 2:00.

School Supplies

We have only 6 more weeks of school! Time is flying by! With that being said, we are running low on supplies. We are out of tissue boxes and glue sticks. If there is anyway you could send some to school with your child, that would be very helpful.

Thank you for all your help!

Spelling and other Info for this week

We will NOT have a spelling test this week, it will be next week. I have already given them their words so that they will have plenty of time to study them. They still have a math and reading homework page that they need to complete by Friday.

Earth Day is Friday, April 22 and we have planned a very fun day in honor of Earth Day. Please join us in our classroom at 8:30 while the students showcase their Recycling Projects that we have been working on the last few weeks. After that we will be going on a field trip to Penick Park. We will load the buses and leave the school around 9:00 in order to make it to the park by 9:15. (I had the students write in their planner’s the time and day but I told them Thursday instead of Friday.) Yes it is on Friday, not Thursday. We need parents to provide bait for fishing at the pond. (Corn, minnows, and worms.) There is a note going home today with all the information about the field trip and also a sheet attached asking that you check off whether your child has permission to go and whether or not they will need a sack lunch provided or if they will be bringing their own. If they bring their own lunch please make sure it is in a sack that can be thrown away, no lunch boxes.

No School Monday, April 25th (Weather make up day)
