Fantastic Rainbow Fish Newsletter
October 28, 2013
This week’s newsletter is full of important information about events happening this week and next week. In the spirit of Halloween (and to make it twice as fun to learn about all of the exciting happenings your child is participating in), we are submitting a 'special edition' newsletter! We hope you enjoy the fun colors and pictures, and please do not hesitate to ask if you need any further clarification.
Your partners in education,
Jane Hray and Karen Hedgecock
Pink Socks/Shirt Day!
- Please send your child to school in regular uniform attire Thursday morning. Costumes should be brought to school in a bag. We will change into costumes after music - around 1:30/1:45.
- We ask that costume accessories such as wigs, face paint, blood/gore, and weapons, etc. stay at home.
- The Lower School Costume Parade will begin at 2:30pm. Please bring your cameras!
Conference Day - Friday, Nov. 1st (no school for students)
If your child needs full-day care, please contact Valerie Moore (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a spot in Afternoon Express.
Reminders about Conference Times will be sent early this week. Additionally, you can view the schedule on our class webpage.
Baby Johnson Gender Reveal Party
To celebrate, we will have "Baby Johnson Day" on Tuesday, November 5th. Our day will be filled with integrated activities based around Baby Johnson. In math, we will make gender predictions, graph data results, and analyze trends. We will write friendly letters to welcome Baby Johnson into the Heathwood community during our writing lesson. Finally, the entire first grade will gather together for a Baby Gender Reveal Party and celebrate Baby Johnson together. It is sure to be a fun, memorable day for the Rainbow Fish and Talented Turtles.
Congratulations to the Johnson family!
Pictures from last week
We had fun applying our knowledge of short vowel sounds through word hunts last week!
We hope you enjoyed hunting for short vowel sounds together for homework, too!
Thank you to Ms. Sobel for being our Friday Friend last week!
