First Grade Happenings -
We had another super week in first grade! The children really enjoyed the discovery lab classes last week. I am really enjoying getting to know everyone.
Parent Volunteers -
All volunteers must have the results of a current TB test and a signed copy of the Volunteer Code of Conduct on file with the office before you can begin volunteering.
Scholastic Book Orders
A great way to support our classroom is to order books online through Scholastic Book Clubs. When parents order online great things happen:
*I pay no shipping fees for books
*You get a $5 free book pick to use on your next order
*I get $3 to spend on our classroom library for every parent order
You will need to complete a short registration and enter our class code:LFBGH
