Kids At Work Day in February

On Friday, February 21, 2020 students are invited to wear clothing that represents careers they may be interested in exploring as an adult. Our hope is that Kids at Work Day will start conversations at home and at school about different types of careers, why someone chooses a career, and what kind of training/schooling is needed to get started in a particular career.

100th day coming up in first grade!

The 100th day of school is a very exciting time in first grade. We will be celebrating on Thursday, January 30th!!

  1. We are going to be having first grade 100th day stations filled with activities themed around 100!  If you are interested, we are looking for parent volunteers WITH clearances to help run some stations.  Please contact me if interested and you are a approved volunteer.
  2. Students can also join us in dressing like they are “100” years old on this day!  Teachers may even look older that day too. Everyone’s participation makes this a really fun day!

A Fun Day in First Grade…

We have some 6th grade buddies visiting us all this week to help us with some fun writing activities. Today we wrote some elf stories with our buddies, check out the pictures below. We also had Mrs. Foster come in to teach us about Coding in first grade. Students all had the opportunity to practice on laptops with the Spark Jr. program. Learning is fun!
