The last week of September (already)!

Our first month of school has flown by!  The kids have learned our routines and we are off and running with reading, Math, writing and Citizenship!

Monday, 9/24 –  We have applied engineering.  We’ll learn how to make 10 in Math.  We’re starting to learn about weather and the seasons in Content.  Please practice spelling words for a few minutes each night.

Tuesday, 9/25 –  We have Music.  Today is the middle of our 1st marking period.  Look for your child’s red reading folder to come home.  Students will begin sharing their reading group books with you for a few minutes each night.  Please send any apple donations to school this morning.  Please practice spelling words for a few minutes tonight.

Our class added all of the parts to Mrs. Potato Head (By working together to have great behavior) and we earned a class reward.  After many suggestions and a secret vote, first graders chose to wear their PJ’s to school.  All 1-T first graders are welcome to wear school appropriate PJ’s to school today!  REALLY!

Wednesday, 9/26 –  We’ll be learning about Johnny Appleseed.  We’re going to be making (and eating, of course) crock pot applesauce.  We’ll also be doing some apple painting.  Please send the kids to school wearing old clothing.  We have phys. ed. today, so please send the kids to school wearing sneakers.  Thank you for all of the donations for our fun day!  Please practice spelling words for a few minutes tonight.

Thursday, 9/27 –  We have a spelling test today. Our special is Art class.  We’ll be meeting with our 5th grade buddies to read some stories together.  First graders are welcome to bring a beach towel or a blanket to school to share with their buddy.  We’ll be going outside if the weather is nice.  

Students who are new to Eshleman this year will have a special luncheon with Mrs. Kaplan and Mrs. Swope.  It’s a fun way to check in on our new kiddos and help them to meet some new friends.  Invitations came home in the Froggy Folder this week.

If you would like to order any books from our Scholastic order, please order on line (or send in your check) by Noon today.  Thanks!

Friday, 9/28 – Teacher in-service.  No school for students.

Sunday, 9/30 – Elementary fun run at Manor Middle school.  Come on out and help Eshleman win the participation trophy!

Looking Ahead:  

Monday, October 8 – No School

10/19 is also an early dismissal day!

Notes:    

Eshleman picture day is on October 3.  Forms were sent home for students who would like to purchase pictures.  All students will have their pictures taken for our yearbook.

First Grade parent night is 10/18.  Please send back your orange RSVP form if you plan to attend.  This will be a great night for you to learn all about what goes on in first grade.  I hope to see you there!
