Its that time of year again for our PTO hoodie, and Square 1 Art sales have begun. Items will be for sale starting Monday, Nov. 4th. The online store will be open for 2 weeks. The best way to order both items is online. Both make great Christmas gifts! Square one art is due by Wed., Nov. 14th.

Look at this great video!

We love using videos to enhance our learning. This week we extended our Units of Study Word Detectives Unit by discussing "usual words." Some of these words include contractions. This video helped with understanding decoding contractions with our little firsties.

First Grade Field Trip

Our field trip is planned for Tuesday, Dec. 3rd. Please plan to be cold. Dress warm (scarf, hat, mittens) are a must. The Gaylord will give your child a coat but the extra layers will help. It is COLD!

Plan a sack lunch. We will eat lunch when we arrive at the Gaylord. If you are attending with your child you will need to provide your own transportation. In addition, you will need to plan for a parking fee. Parking is approximately $15 per car in the convention center parking lot. The convention center parking lot is the best option to access the exhibit quickly. That is where we will unload/load the bus.

Students of the Week!

Remember to practice...

Please continue to have your child practice their reading nightly. They have lots of reading options to choose from in their daily binder. These include; sight words, poems, weekly reader(s), and their library book. Our next round of BAS testing begins this December. We are excited to see their growth! Thank you for your support at home.
