Week 36 in First Grade

May 23 - 26

Final Conferences This Week

Conferences will be held on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday of this week. If you have yet to sign up for a time, please contact your child's teacher as soon as possible.

The last conference of the year, is an opportunity to discuss your child's growth over the school year and to help plan for 2nd grade success. We feel it is of great importance that we find a time to speak with each and every family.

Thank you to those who have already signed up for your child's conference! If something comes up and you are unable to attend, please let us know so we can work something out.

Pete The Cat: May 24

Reminder!! Pete the Cat performanceon Tuesday, May 24 @7PM!

We are asking that the students wear blue jeans and a Dooley blue (royal blue) shirt for the performance. If your child does not own a Dooley blue shirt you might consider borrowing from a friend. Please make arrangements for your child to be dressed and in their teacher’s room by 6:30 PM. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. If an unexpected problem occurs and your child cannot participate, PLEASE notify me and/or your child’s homeroom teacher ASAP.

Last Week for Homework

You'll notice your child's homework sheet is very short this week. Please help your child prepare for their spelling test, which will occur on Thursday since we do not have school on Friday.

Also, this week your child will just have the story in their paper clip book to read.

Thank you for your continued support with helping your child complete their daily homework. It is evident to us each week, who has put in the effort. The results show up in student success in all aspects of the classroom.

Field Day is Thursday!

Field Day shirts will be passed out to your child on Thursday (Field Day)!

We ask that your child pack a change of clothing (pants, underwear, socks, shoes.) Every year the students participate in water activities, and it is very cold in the classroom.

Please apply any sunscreen and bug spray to your child before they come to school. We will not be applying it at school.

Student Holiday: Friday, May 27 - Monday, May 30

Students will have a 4 day weekend as we enter the last week of school!
