Thank you so much to all the parents who came to the Curriculum Night!! I really appreciate your involvement and support! The students really enjoyed reading the note you wrote them and they will keep it in their desk all year. 

Here are some reminders for September:

* Students may bring a healthy snack to school each day. They will eat their snack at the end of the day 3:00pm. Please do not send: fruit cups, yogurt, pudding... anything that requires a spoon. It is best if you send something simple in a container or a baggie. There will be a paper in your child's folder for healthy snack ideas- thank you to Max's mom for that information!

*Email Mrs. Boyd if you want to be a Mystery Reader!

Assembly/ 7 Habits shirt/ Buddies

Wow, what a Friday! We did it! We made it through our first full week of school! I am so proud of how hard they all have worked this week. The transition to first grade is not easy and they did great!

We had our first "Leader in Me" assembly today to celebrate the first full week of school. The teachers gave the students a gift today- a 7 Habits t shirt! Each student received a t- shirt and each grade level has a different color. The students will wear these shirts to school at least once a month when we have our "Leader in Me" school wide assemblies.
You child will bring their shirt home today. They can wear it as often as they want, but be prepared for at least once a month.

Check them out!!! So cute!

We visited with our 4th grade buddies after the assembly. They really enjoyed talking to their buddy and getting to know each other. 
Ask your child about their buddy!

~Writer's Workshop~
We practiced thinking of an idea, getting our paper, a writing tool, sketching the pictures and writing words to go with our pictures! They were very excited to use all of the lovely PENS!!!
Please enjoy the video clips: 



Have a wonderful weekend!
