Mrs. Kelley's 1st Grade Class Newsletter

February 2016

Hello Families,

Kids have been working SO HARD to memorize and recite their numbers and skip counting! I am so proud! Thank you for helping them at home. I was able to check a handful of students on Friday and they all performed beautifully! I will continue to listen to my skip counters next week so if your child hasn't had a turn yet then they will very soon!

We celebrate Valentine's Day with our 1st Grade party on Friday from 1:30-2:30. You are welcome to join us for this fun event. Please have your child finish up their Valentine mailbox and bring to school on Monday or sometime this week. Also, please have them make a Valentine for each student in the class. You can email me if you need another copy of the class list.

We have 2 field trips this year. The Dallas Arboretum and LISDOLA (LISD's Outdoor Learning Center). These dates will come home soon. If you do not already have an approved LISD background check, please visit the following link : LISD Background Check. If you have any questions about the background check, please contact the front office for more information. Background checks usually take up to 3 weeks to process, sometimes longer, so please do not wait if you think you might want to chaperone.
