First Week of School

During the first week of school, we'll be developing our learning community. This includes learning school rules, understanding class procedures and routines, and getting to know each other.

Scholastic Book Orders

This week, your child will be receiving our first Scholastic book order forms. Every time you purchase books from Scholastic, the class enjoys free books added to our library. When placing your online order, use the class activation code GPKNX. They are due by Friday, September 6th.

Volunteer Opportunities

You'll be receiving multiple (about 10) emails from Sign Up Genius about various volunteer opportunities. They include Friday Reader, Monthly Helper, Field Trips, Classroom Parties, Thanksgiving, Holiday, & Teacher Appreciation Lunch Chaperones, and Class Photographers. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
