Conferences this year

Parent/Teacher Conferences will be a little different this year! We are conducting student-led conferences. These conferences allow your child to be an important part by having them share their accomplishments and helping to create goals for the year. Teachers will be sending out directions on Wednesday, September 30th for parents to sign up electronically for a conference date between Monday, October 5th and Wednesday, October 21st. We can’t wait to celebrate your child’s learning with you!

Fall Fundraiser

Our Fall Fundraiser has started! A blue information sheet came home with your child earlier this week. This is a no-sell fundraiser in which all proceeds go directly to TCE. The fundraiser will continue thru October 31st. Every child who raises $10 or more will bring home a prize and every family who donates $50 or more will be entered in a raffle to win an iPod Touch! Thank you for all of your support!

Grandparents Day 2015

We had a wonderful time with the grandparents today! It was so fun to meet YOUR parents! The grandparents also helped the kids complete a timeline of the kids' lives, and the students interviewed the grandparents to see what first grade was like those many years ago. Grandparents met classmates, read with their grandchildren, took selfies to add to the child's iPad homescreen, and even got to learn some math games! Check out the pictures below.


If you aren't following us on Twitter, you should! I tweet pictures of what we are doing in the classroom each day. If you need help setting up an account, I would love to help! Just ask! Our classroom handle to follow is @MrsGibsonTCE.
