Mrs. Clark's First Grade


Summer vacation is near!

It's been such an honor to teach your sweet, bright, and always entertaining children this year! While I think we are all ready for Summer fun, my heart grows heavy when I think about not seeing these precious faces every weekday. Thank you for entrusting me with their little minds this year. I'm blessed. <3

What to expect of the last 8.5 days of First Grade

LOTS going on! LOTS. Here's a list to help you stay organized.


WEDNESDAY, May 21--LAST spelling test (compound words)

THURSDAY, May 22--Field Day 8:30-10:30 (see below for details)

FRIDAY, May 23--End of Year picnic and celebration, Bee Creek Park, (morning, returning to RPE before CAMP at 12:00)

MONDAY, May 26--NO SCHOOL (Memorial Day)

TUESDAY, May 27--GAME DAY (Students may bring a game to play with friends in the classroom. NO ELECTRONICS, please!)

WEDNESDAY, May 28--Camp First Grade (Students may bring a blanket, pillow, and a favorite book. We will make "smores" by the "campfire", construct tents at our desk, and read by flashlight!)

FRIDAY, May 30--Early Release 12:45, Last Day of School!

FIELD DAY is coming!

Our field day is from 8:30-10:30. Students should wear their RED Rock Prairie t-shirts, shorts, and athletic shoes. Please also apply sunscreen BEFORE school. We are not allowed to apply sunscreen to the children nor are the children allowed to bring their sunscreen to school to apply themselves. The "home bases" will be set up by the large shade trees to the left side of the basketball courts (Rock Prairie Road side). All of the First grade classes will be in this area. While the shade trees will be great, if anyone has a pop up tent/canopy they would be willing to set up for us, this would be great! I will bring bottled water so that the kids can stay hydrated and have something to refill. Parents are welcome to attend. It should be a lot of fun!
