First Grade Newsletter
On Monday, December 15th we will be going to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History for our first field trip. We are very excited to explore the exhibits and watch The Polar Express in the IMAX theater.
**All chaperones must sign in on campus and meet in the cafeteria at 8:00 a.m.**
All students will need to bring a disposable sack lunch with their name written on it, a water bottle, and a snack to eat in the afternoon due to an earlier lunch. Their snack will be eaten at school upon our return therefore please put it in their backpack.
Each student will receive a field trip t-shirt on Monday morning. The weather looks to be in the high 50's this day and at times can get cool in the building. Please send your child with a light sweater or sweat shirt.
We are looking forward to a fun filled day of learning! If you have any additional questions please contact your child's teacher.
The First Grade Team

Each week you can ask your child about the learning target to ensure a great conversation of "what did you learn at school today?"
