Pritchard's Pack

Welcome to First Grade!

I will be trying to send out this newsletter every week. There may be times that it does not get sent out, but I will do my best to get it out weekly.

In this newsletter, you will find an update on what we are working on in class, pictures of what we have done the past week, and upcoming events. I will try to keep the upcoming events updated so that you will be able to make plans as needed for school events. Make sure you also check your e-mails from Mrs. Flowers with school-wide information. Sometimes you may find information on it that I do not include in this newsletter as well as more details.

All car riders need to remember their car rider color and number for dismissal. If you still need a car rider tag, please stop by the office to be issued one.

Please practice lunch numbers and car rider numbers with your child.

Don't get tripped up at school! Practice tying those shoe laces! Safety first! :)
