A Note from Mrs. Thexton

Dear Parents,

Welcome back! We had a great 1st week back. Students were rested and excited to be back at school among friends. Can you believe we are in the home stretch headed straight toward 2nd grade! Lots of exciting learning ahead in these last weeks of school. Student-led conferences are coming up April 27-28. This is a chance for your child to reflect on his or her learning from our time in 1st grade. Most information will be coming from Krista Wilson in the very near future! Save the date!

Signing-Out Students Early

Parents who would like to sign out their child early are asked to sign their child out at the office as well as get a gate pass first. The parent is then asked to present the pass to the teacher which allows the student to then be excused early from class. Students who leave early during a school day must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who has received a gate pass from the ES office. No student is permitted to leave school grounds before 2:55 p.m. unless they have a pass in hand. The school nurse may also issue a gate pass to the parent and will inform the ES Office that the student has been sent home for the day.

Math Resources

Our Math Coordinator, Carol Little, has been working to develop a site to house parent resources for math. In particular, it has the videos, parent packet, and parent packet answers for the parent sessions she has been hosting. She also has posted parent strategy letters for the individual units and a packet of Common Core aligned fluency games.

This is a new site and definitely is a work in progress. Mrs. Little started the site in January and is working forward with the units as we complete them. Therefore, materials from Units 1 and 2 may not be available until later this year. In addition, videos can be a little tricky to upload and may or may not always work! Here is the link to that site.

Coming up after Spring Break
