MARK YOUR CALENDARS! Our annual family field trip to the MN Zoo will be on Thursday, June 4th! Families are invited to join their first grader for a trip to the MN Zoo. You can either ride the bus with us or meet us at the zoo. The fees are greatly discounted, so it can be a great way to visit the zoo. Any parents attending the zoo with us MUST have a completed background check. Please make sure you have completed this before joining us at the zoo! Let me know if you need forms!
We are loving Seesaw's digital portfolio. I hope you are enjoying seeing your child's work in real time as soon as it is posted. They LOVE to make you proud! Just to let you know I will be reviewing and marking work through Seesaw, not on the paper copy. This includes spelling tests. If they bring home a paper that is not marked/graded----check for it in Seesaw.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO CHARGE iPADS AT HOME EACH NIGHT! We use them a lot and they need a full charge to make it through the day.
With our focus on our upcoming parent program, there will be no math videos this week. We will be working on Measuring volume this week in math.
