The children had a great time today in school celebrating Halloween.

We also watched ” Spookley the Square Pumpkin”, we will use the story to do some bully prevention activities next week.
Thank you for all of the goody bags. Please check your child’s candy bag and book bag ( that’s where the overflow is) for candy and goodies.

Be creative, and use your imagination, it’s not a turkey it’s a Superkid! Have fun with it!!! We will be writing in school about how their Superkids Turkey survived Thanksgiving!

Welcome to First Grade and the 2020-2021 school year. I hope you are all well and enjoying this beautiful Sunday afternoon. It was such a great pleasure getting to know your children on Friday as well as meeting some of you. No doubt this will be a challenging year, it will be quite different from anything we have ever experienced but we will get though it by working together!
In order for this school year to be a success, I will need your help with the following:
- Supplies must come in tomorrow please. At the very least your child will need; notebooks, folders, pencils, erasers, crayons, glue, scissors, earphones, a soft pencil case and a clear plastic shoe box to store supplies in. Check the supply list on the class page.
- Your child’s name should be on everything including clothing.
- Please pack a healthy snack, this should be something your child can open independently. You may consider wrapping it in tin foil or a zip lock bag. No chips or sugary snacks, and please no nuts.
- Please return the contact information cards, Return to School Acknowledgement and iPad loan and Acceptable Use policy forms.
- Check and return the Go Home Folder every day.
- Check the class web page daily, I suggest three times per day 9:00 am, 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm. Homework will be posted starting tomorrow.
- Your child’s email address will be going home this week.
- Children will be given an IPad to use in school and take home as long as we have all of the proper forms returned to school.
- Beginning this week our schedule will be 7:45 am – 1:30 pm .
