Ms. Gebhard's 1st Grade Class

Make Yourself Proud!

Classroom Update

This will be our last update of the year unless something else comes up! I can't believe there are only 10 more days of first grade! It's been a pleasure getting to know and teach each child in our class this year. Please let me know if anything comes up before the end of the year. Report cards will be sent home on the final day of school.

You received the invitation earlier this week, but here is the link to sign up to bring food for our end of year Poetry Cafe. Hope to see you on Thursday June 2nd, 8:30-9:30am to celebrate our learning in first grade!

If you haven't done so already, please turn in your field day permission slip ASAP!

All library books are DUE ASAP! Sheets have been sent home for missing books. Also, please check to see if you have any of my classroom library books at home that need to be returned. Thank you!!

Fundations Unit 13 and math homework is due this Friday, 5/27. I will continue to send books home to read, but there will be no additional homework.

The schedule is listed below for the remainder of the school year. I will update this as I know the times for special events.
