Because the Hambright community raised an AMAZING $1,000.00 for the Seaside Heights Elementary School, the students are permitted to wear pajamas at school on Friday, December 21!!! Please see that your child does wear sneakers, as we will be going outside for recess. If time permits, we may be able to wear slippers IN the building during part of the day. But sneakers must be worn during lunch and recess times. Thank you for all of your support in helping out another school in desperate need of assistance.
If you have any questions about Friday’s pajama day, please let me know! Thank you!
(Just a reminder….We will have a 1:30 early dismissal that day as well!)
On Wednesday, Mr. Crowther taught us an exciting lesson! We discussed the StoryTown selections, “Miss Jill” and “Big Rigs.” From there, Mr. Crowther shared some details about the rigs, flat-bed trucks, and cargo. Students were paired up and loaded their trucks with boxes (of tvs, milk crates, microwaves?….ok, they were wooden blocks). Groups sent the trucks down a big ramp, and recorded their number of blocks using tallies (with hopefully little spillage!). Students then used a flat-bed truck to transport big pipes down the ramp, using only a few legos to hold them in place. Thanks Mr. Crowther! It was an awesome afternoon, we didn’t want the fun learning to end!
The students in 1-S completed the second unit of writing “Small Moments” this week. What a special treat to share our work with the sixth graders! They were very gracious to give up some of their time Friday afternoon to come listen to our published stories. Thanks sixth grade! And WONDERFUL JOB first grade writers!
