First Grade 411
Students will bring home a green folder every Friday. Student work, weekly newsletters, word lists, homework, and other important information will be in these folders. Homework sheets are for home practice and do not need to be returned to school. We recommned that First Grade homework routines include daily reading and spelling practice.
Folders are due back to school every Monday.
We will go to special area each day from 1:05-1:50.
Students are on a seven day rotation for special area
Music, Art, Guidance, Media, Maker Station, and P.E. x 2
Any money sent to school should be in a clearly labeled envelope. Please write your child's name and the purpose of the money on the envelope: Activity fee, book fair, fundraiser, scholastic book club, etc.
Snack and Lunch
We will have morning snack everyday. Please remember to send your child with a small healthy snack daily. Sometimes this is a 'working' snack, so please, no juice boxes or messy snacks. Students may bring a refillable water bottle to keep at his/her desk. Our lunch period is 11:15-11:40. Lunch may be brought from home or provided by the cafeteria at no charge.
A lunch menu is posted on our school website.
Birthdays are special, especially for our little ones! We can not host birthday parties at school, however, we can acknowledge birthdays with a song and small token. Contact your child's teacher if you would like to send in a small, individually wrapped store bought treat. Little Debbie or Hostess are the perfect size treat for this occasion. Please do not send in full size cupcakes or cakes.
Our Media Center is awesome! Students may check out three books at a time. Books are due back after two weeks. Students have free choice of which books to check out, yet as we approach the second marking period, we will encourage students to check out books on his/her reading level. This will come in handy when we start AR and students are striving to reach goals.
