1F Weekly News
What's been happening in the Land of Learning?
It is wonderful to be getting back in the classroom, and I am happy to share a few pictures taken by Ms. Wait during class time last week. This week we will focus on readjusting routines and getting back into a groove as a class. We are entering the 'home stretch' now and well on our way to 2nd grade. Student led conferences will be held on April 27th - 28th. This is a time for students to reflect on all they have learned and to share it with you. More information will be coming from Krista Wilson soon. Save the dates!
Signing-Out Students Early
Parents who would like to sign out their child early are asked to sign their child out at the office as well as get a gate pass first. The parent is then asked to present the pass to the teacher which allows the student to then be excused early from class. Students who leave early during a school day must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who has received a gate pass from the ES office. No student is permitted to leave school grounds before 2:55 p.m. unless they have a pass in hand. The school nurse may also issue a gate pass to the parent and will inform the ES Office that the student has been sent home for the day.
Our Math Coordinator, Carol Little, has been working to develop a site to house parent resources for math. In particular, it has the videos, parent packet, and parent packet answers for the parent sessions she has been hosting. She also has posted parent strategy letters for the individual units and a packet of Common Core aligned fluency games.
This is a new site and definitely is a work in progress. Mrs. Little started the site in January and is working forward with the units as we complete them. Therefore, materials from Units 1 and 2 may not be available until later this year. In addition, videos can be a little tricky to upload and may or may not always work! Here is the link to that site.
