Miss Martinez's Firsties

Saint Helena

A Note From Miss Martinez

This week we had our first school Mass. Our Firsties did a wonderful job! Our goal this year is to be clear and loud with responses to Father. Please encourage your child to practice those responses at mass this weekend! Our next school Mass is September 27th- we would love for you to join us!

Reading Log

Each month I will send home a reading log. Please read with your first grader each night. They can color an apple for each night they read- if you know you will not be able to read on a certain night and would like to read extra on another night you may do so at your discretion. The purpose of the reading log is to encourage a love of reading, not to make reading a burden. Students who return a completed reading log will earn a prize at the end of each week. If you need more books to read- please let me know.
If you would prefer to get a printed version of this newsletter, please let me know!
