With 8 days of school completed, I am seeing a big difference in the comfort level of your children.
Routines are becoming familiar, and they know what to expect!
We have been doing many activities to learn each other's names, and they are starting to use each other's names when addressing one another! This is a big step towards building new friendships. Some that may last a lifetime!
Be sure to ask your children what makes an insect an insect! We created insects today. The children had to make sure their creations included the following characteristics:
The PTA is looking for one parent/guardian from each classroom to organize the PTA Theme Basket fundraiser. This person would organize items and the putting together of our classroom theme basket. This is a big fundraiser for our PTA. If you are interested in being our organizer, please let me know, and I will send your information along to the PTA chairperson.
Information went home today regarding our Readiness and First Grade Harvest Festival. This is a wonderful memory-making event. Please let me know if you can help with donations or by volunteering to help on that day.
I am almost ready to get the Class Contact sheet out to families. Many of you put your information in for me during the Meet and Greet, and many of you sent in your information. In all cases, I would feel better if I had a signed paper indicating that you are okay with the information you gave me being shared with class families. I will send out a permission slip tomorrow. Thank you.
