First Grade News

26 more days until 2nd grade!

Field Trip

We had such a great time on our field trip! Thank you to our parent volunteers and everyone for helping prepare the students for the trip. Here are some pictures from our trip.

Compliment Party

We have earned another compliment party! They chose to have another Electronic Day. We will do this on Friday, April 25. If you have games (electronic or board games) that you wouldn't mind to send for them to play that day, we would appreciate it! Last time was a lot of fun. Kids played on their personal tablets or games and I was able to get a few of the school's iPads. Here are some pictures of our party...you can see why they would want to do this again! :)

Survivor Day...May 14

On May 14th the kids will get the chance to celebrate all their learning accomplishments. We will have activities for the students that have completed and turned in 4 reading calendars which include water play activities! Also, ALL of our students have met their math goal of 30 problems in 3 minutes!!! So each student will get to participate in a Glow Dance Party that day!


More information will be going home about this day soon. Please be sure to turn in any calendars from previous months that might have gotten left at home! They will count all the way up until May 15th!

Guesses for Goodies

Student council is having their last service project of the year to raise money for Wayside Waifs. If your child would like to bring in $1 they get two guesses for how many gumballs are in a jar. If they guess the right amount (or the closest) they will get to keep the candy!
