Leprechaun Traps

In this week’s homework folder there was a letter explaining the optional project of building a Leprechaun trap. Remember that the trap should come to school on Wednesday, March 16th, so that we can set them up before we go home. Anyone that catches a Leprechaun gets to keep it!

Favorite Book Character Day!

On Friday, January 22, each classroom will choose its own Dress-Up Spirit Day theme. Our class theme is “Favorite Book Character.” Think about some of the books that you love to read, and think about the characters in those books. Dress up like one of those characters! You could even bring along the book that your character stars in if you’d like!

What great, responsible kids and parents!

I must admit, I considered not sending the red folders home last Thursday. Since we’d have 4 days off from school, I worried that many of those things would get lost. But EVERY FOLDER came back to school today! Every kiddos got two good neighbor tickets to put into the box as a reward. Thanks to you all for getting those folders back.

Welcome to First Grade!

The first two weeks of the school year have come and gone. I was so appreciative to have had so many families attend Back to School night, and to have so many offers to help in the classroom. The students have been busy making new friends and learning new routines. This is going to be a GREAT year!
