What's the Scoop?

in Mrs. Beckner's 1st Grade Class

Memory Book from Shutterfly

I have created a memory book to remember our 1st grade year. It was created through Shutterfly. Books are 8x8 in size, soft cover and can be purchased when you view the book through the link I am sending if you would like. There is a coupon code that you can use to get 30% off; use the code RELAX to receive the discount. The discount lasts until Wednesday, May 27. If a new code comes out after RELAX expires, I will share that with you via email.

Pizza Lunch - May 28

On Thursday, May 28, your child will be treated to a pizza lunch courtesy of the Suh family. Students will be provided with pizza, fruit, and bottled water for lunch. If your child does not care for pizza, your child is still welcome to bring a lunch from home or purchase a school lunch and eat along with their classmates in the classroom. Thank you Suh family for this fun treat!

Kona Ice Truck is coming to SGE

The Kona Ice Truck will be at SGE on the last day of school, June 1. An orange flier was sent home Friday with your child. If your child would like to purchase a Kona Ice on that day, please send the money in an envelope and mark it with your child's name, the amount of money enclosed, and the size of Kona Ice being purchased. This will help keep things organized on our end! Can't wait to enjoy one of my favorite treats with my students to end the year!

Follow Mrs. McDaniel to Kenya, Africa

On June 12th Mrs. McDaniel and her husband will travel to Nairobi, Kenya to learn more about the elephant. Mrs. McDaniel was awarded a Lilly Teacher Creative Grant to follow her dream of visiting the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage. Along with seeing with the baby elephants, Mrs. McDaniel will visit an elephant research center to hear from elephant experts. Lastly, she will take part in several safari game drives to see what animals she can spot in the wild. You can follow Mrs. McDaniel on her journey by following her blog. All you need to do is type the link in your browser and sign up. An email will be mailed to you whenever Mrs. McDaniel updates her blog. She will then spend time next year teaching about what she learned. Hope you can come along.


Family Survey

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As we begin the process to plan for next year, we would like your feedback for how this school year went for your family and input for next year. The first six fields are required but the last six fields are optional. We thank you in advance for giving us your honest, yet professional feedback. The survey will be open until June 5th, 2015. Based upon feedback from last year’s survey, it has now been set up to do multiple responses, so you may do this again for families with multiple children attending SGE. Please click on this link to access the survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1l37NrpOQaVr86rDQPMpMdYwVlBoMQ85XVugDPU1VVLk/viewform?c=0&w=1
