1st grade at WT Lewis
Honoring our Veterans and Military families
Family FUN this Friday evening at WT from 5-8pm
Make the last week COUNT BIG! Keep working to reach goals and show what you've learned this 9 weeks. Reports card grades will wrap up this Friday!
Grab a goal this week & focus to achieve it! Work extra hard, concentrate, practice more, don't give up, and celebrate your hard work when you meet that goal.
1/2 way done with 1st 9 weeks
Progress reports came home today! We are very excited and proud of the hard work our first graders are putting in. Each student working on his/her own goals in math, reading, spelling, science, social studies, and behavior choices. Thank you for your continued support at home with AR, reading logs, spelling words, and math homework. YOU make a difference in our students every day, every way!
First Grade AR Night
This Thursday from 3:30-6pm first graders will have the chance to take their very first AR test on their Chromebook with parent help. Parents and students can come anytime during that time frame. We want parents to see what the AR tests look like, how the questions are answered, and be able to celebrate with your child on the first test! Please be sure to bring your child's AR book with you or he/she cannot complete the test with you. After you take the AR test with your child, Mrs. Lockey will be waiting in the library for your child to return the book and show you how they check out another one for the next week. Students should be taking and passing at least one AR test a week moving forward this school year and more successful readers should be taking two a week. Please remember that each child has his/her own reading level with individual goals to improve over time. Help us celebrate the love of reading and promote the excitement of independent reading with AR. We can't wait to see you and your first grader reader Thursday!
I love reading BEARy much!
First grade will be kicking off AR by bringing a teddy bear & blanket to school for some extra reading fun on Thursday, Sept 5th. National Teddy Bear Day is Monday and we wanted to share some snuggle reading time with a buddy as we get ready for our very first AR tests with parents Thursday afternoon from 3:30-6pm.
DISNEY dress up day!
This Friday, Aug 23, is Disney character dress up day to jump start our Disney trip raffle. It's our BIGGEST fundraiser of the school year for WT Lewis and we want to celebrate it BIG! Students may dress up as any Disney character for school this Friday and share those SUPER cute pics on social media to start the raffle ticket buying frenzy! Thanks for always supporting our school.
Change to Wednesday RECESS schedule
We have made a quick change to our daily schedule on Wednesday only. Our recess has been moved to match the rest of the week and will be before lunch. It just helps our littles stay on routines better to know recess is followed by lunch daily.
Welcome to 1st grade!
Kindergarten is so last year! Welcome back to school at WT Lewis and we're very excited to meet our new first graders and their families. We are looking forward to an exciting year together filled with learning adventures. Enjoy exploring our new website and please let us know if you have any questions.
