Just a reminder to bring in a gift for the quintuplets tomorrow. Your baby shower gift should contain the letters Qu or Wh. All gifts will be returned to you after our little baby shower! The kids have been so cute taking care of our quintuplets! They use tissues as blankets and try to be so quiet as they work. I love their imaginations!
Our friend Matt has moved to a new school. We will miss him so much but he promised to keep in touch by becoming our pen pal! Please remove his name from the Valentine list.
We will put these to good use at our 100th day party and our Valentine party. Please let me know if there is something that you are able to donate.

Tomorrow (January 29) we will have a 1:30 early dismissal. Please contact Mrs. Aument in the office if your student will have a transportation change. Report cards will be sent home on this day too. Please sign the report card cover and return it to school along with the comment sheet. The report card is yours to keep at home.
We will be having a baby shower for our QUintuplets on Monday, February 1st. Please look around your house for a baby shower gift that begins with the letters QU or WH. This gift will be returned to you after the shower. The kids have been so precious taking care of our QUints this week!
Our 100th day of school has been moved to Monday, February 8. If you would like to help run a station from 1:00-3:15 please email me at email@example.com. Thanks so much! Children are welcome to dress like they are 100 years old! Need some ideas? Girls could wear dresses, pearls, shawls, glasses, etc…. Boys can wear suspenders, ties, hats, or even a robe and slippers!
I’m looking forward to seeing my first grade friends tomorrow and hearing about everyone’s snow adventures! Penn Manor will be operating on a 2 hour delay for Wednesday, January 27th.
Due to the missed days of school this week Penn Manor will now be in session on the following snow make up dates:
February 12 & March 23
We will need to push our 100th day celebration to Monday, February 8. We’ll combine with Mr. Heiney’s class for some 100 day station fun. If you are able to assist at our stations please email me at Wendy.firstname.lastname@example.org. Arrival time for helpers is 1:00 PM. We’ll rotate to stations from 1:15-3:15. In order to eliminate any confusion we will celebrate the 100th day on February 8, even if we have additional missed days of school between now and then.
We will spend some time on Friday, February 12 celebrating Valentine’s Day. Exchanging valentines is an optional activity. If you choose to send Valentines to school please include a Valentine for all 19 of our classmates. If you choose to enclose a treat with the Valentines please keep in mind that we are a peanut free classroom. Thanks so much! Here is the 1-T Valentine list:
We have worked hard in first grade for almost 100 days and we are ready to celebrate! The 100th day of school will fall on Thursday, February 4th. If we have a missed day of school between now and then due to “the big storm” then we will push our celebration back accordingly. The kids are welcome to dress like a 100 year old! They may wear ties, dresses, shawls, suspenders, bring a cane, make their hair gray using powder etc… I’d also like them to bring in a collection of 100 items that fit into a ziplock bag. You may choose anything you have around the house (dry noodles, m&m’s, buttons, bows, straws, socks etc…). This collection will be returned.
We will combine with Mr. Heiney’s class on the afternoon of February 4th for some 100 day stations. We are in need of some parent volunteers who can help supervise a small group of students at these stations. Volunteers would need to arrive at Eshleman by 1:00 PM for instructions. Our station time will span from 1:15-3:15. The only qualification you need is to be ready for some fun! Please email me if you are able to help. (Wendy.Lutz-Terry@pennmanor.net)
Have you seen your child’s addition math facts in the red take home folder? I tried really hard to get them home for you to practice but I did find a set of flash cards on the floor. Please review these facts at home for a few minutes each night. Not only will the kids need to be able to say the answer to each question but they will need to write the answers too. Learning these facts are a lot of work so I really appreciate the time you take to help at home! When your student passes a level a new set of flash cards will be sent home. We’ll start with addition and then move to subtraction.
We will be having some cycle day changes coming up the next few weeks. Please make note of these on your calendar. You can also view the changes on the school lunch menu. The cycle days are listed along with the menu for each day.
Thursday, January 14 – Cycle day 3
Thursday, January 14 – Eshleman rollerskating party at The Castle, 5:30-8:00. Free admission, small charge for skates. Please plan to attend as a family.
Friday, January 15 – Cycle day 1. This is a make up cycle day 1 from earlier in the year when elementary students had off and secondary students had a cycle day 1. This is a 1:30 early dismissal day, so we will not have book exchange at our normal 2:30 time slot.
Monday, January 18 – No School
Tuesday, January 19 – Cycle day 4
Wednesday, January 20 – Cycle day 5, we have gym
I hope your 2016 is off to a great start! Kids, great job working on First In Math! Remember that little challenge Mr. Heiney’s class gave us in 2015? We only need a little over 400 stickers to catch them! We can do this! Just today Madison earned over 100 stickers! Log in to First In Math and earn another 100 stickers for our class!
When we return to school on Monday, January 4, we will have book exchange. I’ll also be sending home a new list of spelling words.
How far have you gotten on your winter packet? Did anyone complete their BINGO board? I can’t wait to see everyone in a few short days!
