Mrs. Kelley's 1st Grade Class Newsletter

December 2015

Hello Families,

We are learning about the different traditions that are celebrated in cultures around the world! I can't wait to see the Traditions posters that our 1st graders will share this Monday! The weather looks pretty nice for this upcoming week. However, sometimes it is pretty chilly when we go to recess so please make sure your little one has a jacket or coat for these colder months. With the exception of rainy days, all children go outside for recess whether they have a coat or not so I don't want any of our kiddos to be too cold! Thank you!
