Field Trip

Just a reminder that all field trip forms and money is due on Tuesday, May 8th! I have to fill out some additional paperwork to turn in well ahead of the actual trip (lunch requests and some other paperwork) so that we have what we need. PLEASE be sure to have your child's information to me no later than Tuesday! If I don't have a signed permission form on file, then I can not take your child with us.

Also, thank you all so much for your willingness to come along on the field trip! JCMES parents are AWESOME! I have so appreciated your support in your time, materials and in working to make your child's 1st grade year a great one. In case you missed the announcement on Class Dojo, we will be taking 5 parents from each class. We are taking Amanda Bolton (Elizabeth), Brooke Crawford (Grant), Jenni Hiser (Anaya), Al Ruliffson (Joey) and Xavier Thompson (Alex). Hopefully the weather will be sunny and not too hot! It is a field trip that has a LOT of walking. Students should plan to wear very comfortable walking shoes--PE shoes would be best!


Reading and Homework

Next week your child will not bring home a reading book or spelling words. We will be working on some writing, coding and some in class sight word activities.....and perhaps even a fun surprise or two. So, there will be no homework next week.

Monday, May 7

On Monday, May 7 we will have our final book cart for the school year. Students may purchase up to 4 books at 25¢ each.

Social Studies


We are working on understanding wants and needs, goods and services, AND producers and consumers. Any conversation that you can have at home will help students really understand these concepts. We are exposed to opportunities to do this everyday through shopping, medical appointments, your job...just to name a few!
