Tomorrow is Physical Fun Day for first grade. We are all hoping the weather cooperates for us to hold this fun time tomorrow (Wednesday, May 28). Please see that your child is dressed properly for the weather. We will have Phys. Ed., so sneakers are of course required. Being outside, I appreciate you applying sunscreen to your child in the morning before sending your kiddo to school. We will be outside from 1:15-3:15.
Should the scattered thunderstorms occur, the rain date for Physical Fun Day is next Wednesday, June 4. Stay tuned!
Today your child received a packet of “work” beginning with page 31. This IS NOT homework! Our language arts series, Harcourt’s Story Town, contains 30 lessons. We will not finish all of the work, so I sent them home. Some students had fun working on the pages and “getting ahead” today! Feel free to use them this summer on a rainy day, a hot/humid day, an “I’m bored…I have nothing to do!” day… Whatever works! But I will not need to see any of them. ENJOY!
Please help your child to remember their library books….tomorrow (Friday, May 23) is our final Book Exchange lesson of the year. ALL student library books are to be returned for good. Mrs. Etzweiler and Mrs. Nadig must not only check in all books and complete inventory on them, but this year, must box up all of the books for moving to our NEW BUILDING! Thank you for remembering the books for the morning!
With the imminent rain the forecasters are predicting for tomorrow, the first grade teachers have decided to cancel our trip to Greider Park. However, please note that we will still have a “first grade picnic.” We encourage students to still dress as if we were going to the park. First graders will still eat lunch together, and have a packed lunch. If you signed up for a bagged lunch from the cafeteria, it will be provided for you. If you are packing lunch, please still send that in. We promise to have a fun day, with little to no “academic work” as planned for the trip! Also, because of the limited space, we appreciate your understanding that parent chaperones are not needed for this day. We are sorry to miss this day at the park, but are going to make the best of a rainy day! 🙂
Also, please remember the 1:30 early dismissal!
Mrs. Bittenbender, Mr. Heiney, and Miss Szentesy
The students did it again, they reached their Box Top goal. The PTO appreciates all the box tops that families clip. Students earned a PAJAMA DAY! This will take place Wednesday, May 14. Students are allowed to wear their pajamas to school. They may bring along slippers to wear indoors. (Kids will need regular shoes/sneakers for lunch and recess). If they prefer to wear school clothes on the bus, students may change into pajamas here at school.
Way to go!!!
