Happy Monday Firstie Families!,

This week SPRING begins! And in 1st grade we are so excited to keep blooming! This week we have a Family Homework Project in place of our weekly book report. We have been comparing the past and the present and looking at how things have changed over the years. Last week you interviewed a family member about how school has changed. This week you are to pick an object and create a timeline of how it has changed over the years. Please see the assignment page found in your homework packets. You can create the timeline on any paper of your choice. However, if you would like to complete the timeline on construction paper I would be happy to provide you with some. Let me know if you need some paper from me.

We had a very successful St. Patrick's Day fundraiser and pancake breakfast! Thank you to all the colunteers and donations! We couldn't do it without you!

Please click on the title of this post to view this week's newsletter. A paper copy can be found in your students green folder.

Thanks for all that you do!

March Fun & A Look Ahead

Hello Wonderful Families,

Happy Monday! I  hope you are adjusting to the time change. I know it through me off a bit. However, I am happy to report that our lovely Firsties seem to have adjusted well. 

New Assessment

We were able to complete a series of sight word testing using a new program called ESGI. The program allows me to test my students on topics like sight words and print the results immediatly into flash cards that I can send home to you. Most of the class recieved a set today to practice for our next assessment. Please  practice these words with them nightly as part of their homework.

Weekly Book Report

You will also notice in the weekly homework packet, that the weekly book report is a little different. We have been studying how things have changed over time, phones, transporation, homes, etc. The report this week is based upon this idea. Students have been asked, with the help of thier families, to interview a person over 50 years old and ask them how they have seen things change. Their is a list of questions on the back of the report sheet.


This week our P.E. day has been changed to Wednesday. Please plan accordingly when students get dressed tomorrow. Next week we will be back on Tuesday's. 

St. Patrick's Day

  • Dress - This Friday is St. Patrick's Day. Students are allowed to wear St. Patrick's Day themed free dress on this day.
  • Breakfast - Our hall way will also be celebrating by having a special breakfast. Each class is providing a different food to share with the hall. Our class is providing the pancakes for the breakfast. I will purchase the batter and ingredients, however we are in need of 3 parents who can come and help cook and serve food. If you are available please let me know.
  • Fundraiser - Thank you to all the families who donated to the St. Patrick's Day fundraiser. The will be delicious I am sure. If you are looking to help assemble and or sell the treats (maybe at recess or lunch) please let me know. 

Dinner Aution Item

The 1st grade class will be painting and decorating a wooden cooler cart to be auctioned off at this year's dinner auction. I will be sure to send pictures as we make progress. 

Next Field Trip

  • Farm - Our next field trip will be on Thursday, April 6th. The location has changed from the library to Underwood Family Farms. We will be picking strawberries and vegetables. This is one of my favorite field trips each year. The cost will be $15 per person. I will be sending out the permission slips in the next week or so. I just wanted to keep you updated so that you can plan ahead. 
  • Sea Center - The Sea Center trip is scheduled for May 4th. While the resceduling of this trip was disappointing, I am happy to share that all families who paid last time are already taken care of. We will need to resign permission slips, and check on drivers, but all else will stay the same. I will send out more information as the date gets closer. 

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the unending help and support you give to our school and your students.
