Field Trips Coming VERY Soon!

UNC Planetarium and The NC Museum of Natural Sciences

We have our last two field trips of the year coming up in the next three weeks. First, the first grade team thought a trip to the planetarium was just the thing to culminate our learning on space. We will be viewing the show "Sun, Moon and Stars" at 9:30am on Tuesday, May 5th. Then, the following week on Thursday, May 14th we will be visiting the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh. We would love for you to join us, so be on the lookout for a permission slip in your child's take-home folder on Monday!


Friday, May 1st, 9am

9115 Seawell School Road

Chapel Hill, NC

We hope that you will be able to join us this Friday for Folkmoot! This Seawell tradition is an amazing time to experience the Seawell community and watch our children perform dances from different countries around the world! Please plan to arrive early to be seated and ready by 9 o clock. This year the first grade classes will be performing "LaRaspa" from Mexico. Our class will perform at approximately 10:00 am. Some items are needed for this event. Please sign up below if you would like to contribute.


Costumes are provided for the children, but they are asked to wear some specific clothing that day if possible.

Boys: Please wear blue jeans and either sandals with straps, or dress shoes (preferably no tennis shoes or Crocs, please). We will supply shirts, bandanas, and hats.

Girls: Please wear sandals with straps, or dress shoes (preferably no tennis shoes or Crocs, please). We will supply skirts and blouses.

We can't wait to see you there!

Field Day!

We will be having our First Grade Field Day on Wednesday, May 20th! Be on the lookout for more information to come home in your child's folder.

1st Grade Celebration (psst...and surprise baby shower!)

It is hard to believe it, but we only have 7 more weeks of school. Wow! The year has flown by and our kids have grown and learned so much. As a way to celebrate all of our hard work, we would like to have a party!

I always like to get parent input on times that work best because we really want you to celebrate with us. The party will be the last week of school, and we can either have it as a breakfast or as an end of the day snack. If you have a preference for morning or afternoon, please let us know. Also, if there is a day that you would not be able to attend let us know. We will try our best to accommodate as many requests as possible.

Also, I would love to have a sneaky, top-secrete surprise for Ms. Shannon and Baby Rockstar. I thought it would be special to have a part of our celebration be a surprise baby shower. I would love some help with this! I was thinking of having a reading and/or diaper theme, but I have no experience, so If you are interested in helping please let me know through email :) Remember, it is top-secrete!
