Ms. Gebhard's 1st Grade Class

Make Yourself Proud!

Classroom Update

We have an end of year field trip planned for this coming up Friday, May 20th. Permission slips will be sent home tomorrow and need to be returned ASAP (Wednesday would be best). There is no cost, but you will need to indicate on the permission slip if you need a lunch from school or if you'll be packing one. We will be heading to Beaver Lake for a picnic and nature walk with a visit to Mrs. Johnson's house to learn about her bees.

Save the Date! Our classroom will be celebrating the end of our 1st grade year with our "Poetry Cafe" breakfast and poetry reading. It will be 8:30-9:30 on Thursday June 2nd. More details to come!
