Fill the Bus Update! NISD Food drive ends the 18th!
We are challenging all first graders to bring at least 100 cans by next Tuesday the 18th. If they do Ms. Rocha will get pied in the face!!! Your child will need to bring in their cans to the classroom so that each first grade teacher can keep count of all the cans. We are looking forward to helping our campus win the challenge and seeing Ms. Rocha get a pie in her face!

4th grade Service Learning Project
Fourth grade is participating in "The Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive" and will need your help! They will be sending out a letter from a fellow Bulldog with all the details for participation. Let's just say it will include a pajama day and sweet donations for young children all over the world :) Keep watch for more to come!

Each week you can ask your child about the learning target to ensure a great conversation of "what did you learn at school today?"
Readers and Writers Workshop:
Students will learn how to identify attributes of Pat Mora books so that; they can better understand her writing style as well as make connections as to how her books are interrelated.
Students will compare and contrast the first Thanksgiving to the Thanksgiving of today so that; they can learn from the past and continue to contribute and make a brighter future.
Students will be learning how to order and measure the "capacity" (amount of space) of
containers using non-standard units of measurement. They will learn how to use a balance to assist with the comparing non-standard units with common objects so that; the estimated and actual weights can be determined.
Students will discover rocks, soil, and water so that; they can explain what our Earth's natural materials are as well as how they are used in our every day lives.
