Fourth Term is really flying by! The students are doing an amazing job maintaining focus and completing assignments. This week, we will be completing assessments!
Week of 5/17-5/21:
Word Works: assessments, red words “full”, “grandmother” and “park”
Reading: retelling, simple and compound sentence writing
Math: Topic 11 and math assessments
Health: Nurse Amy’s Health lesson
Science: plants
FYI:
Be sure your child has a water bottle at school each day as water fountains are not being used.
 
Just a reminder that students should not be wearing flip-flops to school. Only those sandals that have straps on the back and wrap the ankle should be worn.
 
Wednesdays continue to be Asynchronous. Your child needs to complete all activities and upload them into Schoology. Not completing and uploading assignments on Wednesday results in an absence.
 
Remember to check in to Nurse Amy’s Class on Wednesday. This is a graded assignment for first grade health.
 
Remember, assignments are to be uploaded the day they are completed and due. Otherwise, they are considered late.
 
Be sure your child practices their spelling words each evening.
 
If your child is virtual, be sure they have all materials needed for class each day and are active participants in class discussions. Work should be completed during the actual lesson with the in-person students.
 
May 18th is our Color Run from 12:45-1:45. Virtual students will have an activity to complete during this time to upload.
 
All library books need to be returned by May 21st.
 
Around the World activity is scheduled for May 21st. Virtual students will have activities to complete and upload during this time.
 
Field day is scheduled for May 27th. Volunteers are still needed to run stations. Virtual students will have activities to complete during this time.
 
If you would like to donate items for sensory bottles, they are due May 28th.
 
The end of year bonfire is scheduled for May 28th from 6-11pm.
 
No School on May 31st due to Memorial Day.

Have a great week!
