PARTY DAY!! READ ME
First Grade Winter Party will be in your child's classroom December 19th at 1:45.
For security purposes on party days, we ask parents to inform the campus, in advance, if you are planning to attend a classroom party so that we can enter all visitor names into our secure database. If you have ever signed in through the computer in our front office, then you will need to RSVP utilizing the link below, and you will be able to check in quickly in the foyer to receive a name tag.
If you do not RSVP, or if we have not scanned your license in the front office this school year, then you will need to complete this process before you are allowed to attend the classroom parties. To avoid the party day afternoon traffic in the front office, you can stop by the front office to scan your license any school day from 7:30am-3:30pm. We look forward to your attendance and in celebrating our last 2014 school day together.
Please reply to this RSVP link by 12:00pm Thursday, December 18, to confirm attendance at your child’s party on Friday, December 19 at 1:45pm. Each adult attending will need to enter his/her name on the RSVP list. Each adult only needs to RSVP once - even if you have multiple parties to attend in the school. If you are not able to attend, you do NOT need to reply.
For information regarding volunteering, schedules, contact information and much much more check out our First Grade Website.

Last week we introduced the “Bridge to Ten” strategy. I am attaching the Orange Belt flash cards we are using in class.
I hope you enjoy helping your student prepare for this at home. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
