Grandparents day was so exciting! The kids had a great time socializing with lots of fun activities. I hope they shared all about it!
We had 100% participation in Maroon and Gold Day. We will get to keep the Totem Pole in our room for a few days!!
We had a great time watching the teachers play the 8th grade girls in volleyball to get them excited for L.I.T. We wish the volleyball team good luck this weekend!
I like to take a break on the weekends, as I'm sure you do as well. But, for the next little bit, I will be sending reading homework for the weekends. As a whole class, we are working hard, but are falling a bit short of our reading goals. So, I would like to encourage a little more practice. The homework shouldn't take more thatn 10-20 minutes to read. Thanks so much for ensuring your child's success!!
First grade will walk to the Police Station one day this week (probaby Thursday) afternoon to deliver some goodies and a LOT of thank-you cards, that we have made, to show our appreciation for all the police do for our community!!
