Monday 1/19- Martin Luther King Jr. Day! No school!
We will kick off our Boosterthon Fundraising Event next Tuesday, January 20th with a pep rally during the school day! Our Boosterthon Fun Run will be held on Thursday, January 29th. Our first graders will run from 1:30-2:30pm. More information for Boosterthon will be sent home next week!
Our 100th day of school is approaching quickly! We will celebrate the 100th day of school on February 6th. Your student's teacher will send home an information sheet on a 100th day of school project that we do every year in first grade. We are excited to see what our students create!
Report cards are coming out SOON for our 3rd six weeks! Don't forget to access them online through our Home Access Center with NISD. This can be found on our Peterson website or at www.nisdtx.org.
The principal book of the month is called The Day the Crayons Quit. Below are some pictures from a book reading by our principal, Mrs. Tremain, to our first graders!
Readers, Writers, and Social Studies
In Writer's Workshop we are talking about different types of poetry! This week we learned about alliterations, similes, metaphors, and sensory poems! Our students have enjoyed applying their learning by writing poems themselves.
In Social Studies, we learned all about Martin Luther King Jr. Students had the opportunity to draw and write how THEY could make the world a better place, just like MLK!
