Mrs. Kelley's 1st Grade Class Newsletter

May 2016

Hello Families,

Please look in the Mustang Folder this upcoming Tuesday for an information sheet about our Arboretum Field Trip this Thursday, May 12th. Thank you for sending a disposable lunch for your child. Also look for a sheet about our upcoming school unit on camping. Each student will bring a baseball cap to school by May 18th. There is also information about our "Camp Mail." Thank you for helping us to make learning fun!

Please make a note that on May 9th-11th the Third, Fourth, and Fifth graders will be taking the STAAR test. Parents will not be allowed in the building to volunteer or eat lunch with their children. Thank you!

I will send home our last Scholastic Book order form in this week's Mustang Folder. This would be an inexpensive way to purchase books to keep your student reading over the summer! Please click the link below to order online. All orders are due by May 17th.

Lastly, I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone for ALL of the teacher appreciation gifts, cards, treats, and OH MY THE CHOCOLATE!! I feel very loved. Your kiddos are like my own children to me...I love them and I love my job. Every day at work is an adventure! I will miss them so much when they move on to 2nd grade but I am very proud of how much they have learned. Thank you for trusting me with your little one!
