Mrs. Kelley's 1st Grade Class Newsletter

February/March 2016

Hello Families,

I have not included any pictures of student work this week. We are hoping all of our families will instead come to Homestead Open House on Thursday, March 3rd (5:30-7:00 come and go format) and then you will be able to see all of the awesome things your child is doing at school! We hope to see you there!

We will celebrate TEXAS FUN DAY on Friday, March 4th. This will be a fun day of learning about Texas, dressing up as cowboys and cowgirls, playing Texas games, and eating Texas snacks! We are asking each family for a food item donation that will be due on Wed. March 2nd. Please send in the circled item on the yellow sheet. Thank you for helping us to make learning fun!

I know your kiddos will be crushed but the 1st grade teachers have decided there will be NO HOMEWORK this week! Please feel free to encourage Istation or FASTTMATH minutes but there are no required homework assignments for this week. We will not have a spelling or sight word test.

Here is a message from Mrs. Cyr, our Science Discovery teacher:

Could you please add to your newsletter or send an email asking the parents to send in toilet paper rolls and cereal boxes for a racecar activity? I will need these items by next week.

Thank you so much for your help with this project,

Lisa Cyr
