Schaffer's Snippets

September Newsletter


The boxes are unpacked and the name tags are out! I can't wait to meet all of the students tomorrow and have them see our "new" classroom. I know they will feel comfortable and at ease in our temporary home. We are soon to be off on our adventure of learning and working together to become independent readers, writers, and mathematicians.

We are known as 1Sc.

Our room is 302.

Lunch and Snack

We will have a snack every morning. Please send a small snack in a separate bag from lunch. Lunch bags get sent to the cafeteria in the morning and will not be accessible in the classroom at snack time. Please make sure to bring a snack for the half days.

First grade has lunch recess from 11:50-12:40. We play first; then eat in the cafeteria with the second grade students. Our first day of lunch is Thursday, September 3. Students can purchase lunch or bring lunch. The lunch menu and information about ordering meals is on the Tatem homepage.

Please don't forget to label all backpacks and lunchbags.
