Fun day at the park!

The first graders (and first grade teachers!) had a BLAST at the park today.  From whiffle ball and kickball, to frisbee and soccer, sliding, swinging, digging, creating…. they did it all!  We had a fun picnic-style lunch, played a little more, created a chalk art masterpiece, blew bubbles, had freeze pops, and even a fun round of first grade BINGO!  Everyone went home exhausted!  Ask your first grader their favorite part of the day!

Park Day Friday!

Some important things to make our day at the park a success:

*wear sunscreen (apply it at home)
*wear sneakers
*dress for the temperature – it’s looking like shorts weather right now.  HAMBRIGHT LEADER shirts would be perfect for the day!
*bring a bagged lunch and drink (no glass bottles please), students who ordered from the cafeteria will get their lunch in the morning
*bring a water bottle, try freezing it
*bring a beach towel to sit on if you want
*bring appropriate sports and outdoor play equipment such as balls, wiffle ball and bat, jump ropes and frisbees (It helps to have everything labeled with your name.) Plastic grocery bags are helpful for transporting the equipment.
*wear hats and sunglasses if you want
*be ready for a fun days outdoors
*NO electronics of any kind!

Published Poetry

Today the first graders in 1-S had a fun celebration, sharing their published works of poetry with fifth graders.  Mrs. Hockley’s students showed leadership skills when listening to our work.  They also shared some cool acrostic poems and shape poems with us.  The students all learned a little something.  It was so nice to see older students being leaders with us!  Way to go 1-S and 5-H!

also….how cute do they look in their pajamas?! 🙂

Pajama Day….again!

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 from the PTO!  This will take place Thursday, May 7.  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 synergize first grade families!!!

Race for Education!

The first graders (and teachers!) had a great picnic lunch on Friday!  Way to synergize and bring in lots of labels!  🙂  Also included….the fabulous new Leader Shirts that EVERY STUDENT received on Friday.  Wear them with pride and remember to use the 7 habits every day!
