Weekly Happenings

What a fantastic week! We were so happy to get OUTSIDE for recess the last couple of days! We hope you all enjoy this beautiful weekend!

As we get back into the swing of things we wanted to remind you to be sending baggie books back as much as possible. If your child cannot find their baggie book please write us a note to let us know. Reading at home makes a significant impact to the success of your student in 1st grade.

Remember we do not have school on Monday or Tuesday.

Students have shown so much growth in just one short week with main topic and key details. We are continuing to practice finding details that directly relate to the main topic.

We became "teachers" this week in our writing. Student's practiced writing information books.
