First Grade Newsletter

Whispering Pines Elementary

March 2023

We are 3/4 of the way there. Spring break is right around the corner.

When we return from break, we will have 10 weeks left of first grade. It is important that we all work together to ensure each student is reaching their full potential and making the growth they need to be ready for second grade.

On March 22nd, we will be going on a field trip to Main Street Theatre. Make sure to send in your child's permission slip. Unfortunately due to space, no parent volunteers will be able to join us.

Look for all the information that will be coming home about Super Kids Day. We will need donations of Mr. Pibb and you may also purchase a Super Kids Day t-shirt.

As always, make sure to check in with your child's teacher about any items or supplies they might need to finish out the school year.
