Final First Grade Newsletter of the Year! Oh...how time flies! I can't believe this will be our last week together as first graders. I am such a lucky teacher to have had the joy and privilege to teach this group of children this year. They are all such wonderful, kind young people and I will truly miss them next year. Lots of information for all the happenings going on this week, so be sure to mark down dates/times! Have a safe and fun summer.
Reminders for the week:
Monday: Field Day from 12-2:45. (weather permitting). I will have a cooler to keep your child's drink cool throughout their time out on the field. I will also have a blanket set up in the shade for them to rest on whenever necessary. PLEASE send in a WATER BOTTLE of any kind, LABELED WITH THEIR NAME, so they have something to keep hydrated. ALSO, PLEASE APPLY SUNSCREEN, prior to school and plan an outfit that will help keep them cool along with a pair of appropriate shoes for physical activity. Again, you are more than welcome to join us during this time. Mrs. Conlon is asking for parent volunteers to run one of the 25 stations that will be set up! THANK YOU!!
Ice Cream Social from 6-7:00 in the evening!
Tuesday: LIVING THINGS RESEARCH OPEN HOUSE from 2-2:45 in the cafeteria. Come anytime during this time block to come view their hard work!
Wednesday: TALENT SHOW is from 1:45 to the end of the day. Our very own Callie will be performing during the third act of the show and our very own Ally and Stella will be performing the 8th act in the show. Teachers will be performing the final act! If you would like, you are welcome to join us in the gym!
*****On Wednesday, your child will NOT NEED TO PACK A LUNCH OR ORDER A HOT LUNCH!!!! Our class won the Box Top Contest and will, therefore, be rewarded with a pizza lunch from the PTO. I will be providing drinks and sides (fruit cups and chips) and, as an added bonus, Callie will be celebrating her summer birthday on this day and sharing ice cream sundaes for dessert! So, unless your child wants something other than pizza, you do NOT need to pack them a lunch or order a hot lunch on this day. Thank you!!
Thursday: AWARDS ASSEMBLY at 8:45.
Friday: LAST DAY OF FIRST GRADE! Thank you so much to those of you who said you would be available to help out during our last morning together with face paint, scrapbooking, etc. If you volunteered to come in, you are welcome to join us at anytime after the start of school!
Wow! What a fun-filled, action packed week ahead of us to end our year together. Thank you, again, for the privilege and opportunity to teach your children. I hope you can look back over the year and feel your child has had a wonderful first grade experience.
