May 14th-21st

I can't believe this is our last full week of school!! The year has flown by. I wanted to take the time to thank each one of you for sharing your amazing children with me this year. It has truly been a pleasure and a blessing to work with all of you and to help your children grow in wisdom and faith. I am so proud of their hard work and all that they have accomplished this year!


We have not yet received confirmation regarding our field trip.  As soon as we know if Midway Golf will be open the 17th, we will let you know!  Thanks to the parents who volunteered to drive!  **Please return field trip permission slips by Monday just in case! 

Our story for next week is from Unit 6, Week 4 "Dot and Jabber."  We are assessing suffixes next week, and will be doing end of year writing assessments.  We are also studying open and closed syllables in spelling.

***The first grade teachers have decided that we will not be sending math homework or book bags for these last two weeks of school.  Please try to squeeze in some reading time in between all the sports and fun outdoor activities.

Our LAST Math Mania test is ADDING  9.  Please practice throughout the week. I will also be introducing two digit addition, which is where those memorized facts will really help!


This week, the students will be expected to do a written retelling of a Bible story.  We have been reading and reviewing several in class.  **Please make sure your child has chosen which story he/she wants to retell before Monday! 


Please make sure to return your purple Important Papers folder EVERY day!   Please take the time to go through papers with your children and help make corrections if necessary, then TAKE THE PAPERS OUT of this folder and keep them at home.  

Please send a healthy snack for the afternoon each day

Wear tennis shoes on Mondays and Fridays each week.

Return library books on Monday each week if you have not already returned them.

PLEASE make sure that all clothing items, backpacks and lunch boxes are clearly labeled with your child's name!
