Reminder From Miss Baker

  • We are getting into sandal weather. Please remember to wear or bring gym shoes on P.E. days (Monday and Wednesday).
  • If your child still has a library book at home please return it as soon as possible. Our library staff is working hard to get the library in order for Explore this summer.

What are we learning?

Reading: We are reading the book Mrs. Piggle Wiggle to enjoy reading together as a class and to continue to practice reading comprehension.

Writing: Students are finishing the process of publishing our class book. We cannot wait to share our work with you! We will also begin working on our first grade memory books.

Content: We are continuing to explore how things move.

Math: We are continuing our study on 2D and 3D shapes.

Last Day Sack Lunch

A paper went home with your child today about sack lunches for the last day of school. If your child will need a school lunch on the last day, they will all be sack lunches so that we can enjoy a picnic lunch outside. If your child needs a sack lunch please return the note on Monday, or send me an email stating that you child will need a lunch.

Toys at school

Recently we have had a problem with students bringing toys/ Pokemon cards to school with them. This results in the student getting in trouble with the toy, the toy getting lost or stolen, or cards getting traded with other students. Please help by making sure that your child is leaving these things at home! :)

Field Day

Field day is on Wednesday! Please make sure to have your child wear comfortable clothes and shoes so that they can enjoy all of the fun activities that Coach has prepared!


Explore (summer school) will be at Holland once again this summer! If you would like for your child to be a part of Explore this summer you can sign up online, or contact me for a paper sign-up form. . If you have any questions please let me know.
