Hello First St. Families!


Here is our Roadrunner Weekly for the week of February 10th through February 14th. Don't forget that this is a short week as we look forward to our five-day President's Weekend! Wednesday is our last day and we return to school next Tuesday! Enjoy your time off!


Our Boosterthon Fun Run has come to an end, and in total we raised just over $11,000! If you are interested, you are still able to donate money by logging on to funrun.com. Thanks for your continued support of our school. We take great pride in the kindness and generosity of our First St. community!


Our Love & Logic parenting series begins this Monday from 5:30-7:30 PM in the library, and we still have a few spaces left. Childcare is available as well. See the information below for more details.


As a weekly reminder, i-Ready is an important skill builder that our kids can access at school and at home. Our teachers try to build in time during the school day for some practice, but we also encourage your child to continue using it at home also as the program recommends a minimum of 45 minutes per subject, per week to help build math and ELA skills.


Lastly, please check out our staff websites to keep current on homework and class events.


Have a great week!

"Parenting the Love & Logic Way is Coming to First St. in English & Spanish!

The Love and Logic approach is easy to use, raises responsible kids, and changes lives. It is a four week no-cost workshop designed by the Love and Logic Institute to give parents practical skills that can be used immediately!


Learn how to:

• Avoid un-winnable power-struggles and arguments

• Stay calm when kids do incredibly upsetting things

• Set enforceable limits

• Avoid enabling and begin empowering

• Help kids learn from mistakes rather than repeating them

• And much more!


ALL CLASSES ARE HELD ON MONDAYS IN THE FIRST ST. LIBRARY FROM 5:30 – 7:30, February 10th – March 9th, 2020 (No Class on Feb. 17, 2020).

* Childcare for children aged 3-12 will be available - kids must be potty-trained!
