Check Out Mrs. Hanna's First Grade Class

SIzzle, bubble, flip, enjoy! Mrs. Hanna's class is celebrating Valentine's Day by having a special pancake breakfast. They are learning the steps to make pancakes and enjoying a tasty breakfast together as a class!

This group of first graders was also caught making Valentine's Day boxes in math class. They were using their new knowledge of geometric shapes to measure and design boxes for their valentines! It's great to see hands-on, integrated math!

Cultural Fair - Postcard Project!

This year the Multicultural Fair will be on Monday, March 2nd. We would love your help making sure your student has a postcard which we will use to create into a regional quilt to hang up in the hallways. Each student will have the option to create one postcard. On the back of this piece of paper is a blank postcard! Please fill in: family name, country of origin, and home language. Please draw, or attach photos that represent your culture. This could include: food, holidays, dress, animals, flags, landscapes, etc. Please decorate your own personal stamp any way you want to represent your region. Once this is complete, please return to your teacher by Friday, February 28th! Thanks so much for all of your help! Blank postcards will be going home before the February vacation!

Reminder! Cents for Seeds

We are still collecting change in our classrooms until Friday, March 6th!! Please send in any spare change you have. No amount is too small! We will use this to buy seeds and supplies to start growing in our classrooms.

Thanks for your help!
