First Grade News!

Excel Resumes April 7th and goes till May 1st!

Morning Announcements!

In the month of April, First grade is responsible for morning announcements. Students will be selected to read different parts of the message in the morning. Your child will bring home a script the night before so you can practice. Please practice with them a couple of times, so they feel confident. Students need to be to school on time on that day because announcements happen right at 8:10.

Snow Day Makeups!

Due to the number of weather closures so far this winter we have decided to have the following calendar adjustments. Regularly scheduled late starts on March 12, April 9, and May 14 will become full school days and April 22 will change from a non-school day to a full day for all students.

Days Off and Spring Break

We have a couple of days off coming up soon. March 25-29 we have off for spring break. Enjoy your time off!

Please Collect Pringles Cans!

Later this year, first graders will start their own number scrolls. Scrolls are kept in Pringles cans in the student's desks. Please send in any Pringles cans that you have to your child's teacher.

Reading Bookmarks

Make sure you are reading and recording your minutes each night on your student's bookmark. Students will get to earn different prizes when the bookmarks are brought back each month.
