Wow! Those 4 days of First Grade flew by :) In that short amount of time we practiced classroom/school procedures, got to know each other, practice our Caring Coyote Pledge and tiptoed into classroom tasks. Your First Graders are some incredible learners and this year is going to be AMAZING to say the least! I have begun posting pictures to our Twitter/Facebook for you to see some extra updates on what we have been doing this week. MANY of you have already found us on these communication tools and I have received email confirmation from most of you. If you have not received an email from me this past week, Please take a moment to email me so that I have your email for classroom communication (email@example.com)
THANK YOU for the overwhelming amount of school supplies! We are all set for now and I will let you know if we ever need anything else as the year goes on via email/blog.
*A quick note about the blog post: This will be updated weekly(usually Sundays) and sent to you via email/Remind as a reminder that I have updated it for you to read about the upcoming week. If you read this on your phone, be sure to scroll all the way down after the post to see the SideBlog notes such as Student of the Week, Home Thinking, and Important Reminders.
Have you signed up for REMIND yet? It's super easy and will be used as a quick communication tool for things like when the blog is updated and other helpful reminders. All you need to do is text to the number 81010 with the message: @22c8d4g
Since we do not have a drinking fountain in the classroom, water bottles may be kept in the classroom. Please make sure they are labeled so that your student's bottle does not get mixed up with another student. If your child would like to have water at lunch also, you may want to send in a separate water bottle so that they don't run out before the end of the day.
Please send in a HEALTHY snack for your student every day to serve as brain food mid-morning. If you would like, you may also send in an afternoon snack, which students can have before dismissal once they are packed up for the end of the day. *Thank you for the *NUT FREE* snack donations! These will be helpful if students forget to pack one that day*
First Grade Directory
You should have received a permission slip in your First Grader's Red Folder about publishing contact information in the First Grade Directory. If you would like your student's contact information published, please return by this Friday, September 14th. In addition, if you have misplaced yours and would like another one sent home, please let me know.
We have P.E. on Tuesdays and Fridays. If you would like, you may send in a pair of gym shoes for your student to keep in their locker just in case they do not wear a safe pair of gym shoes to school that day.
If your student has a change in dismissal, either send a note with your student or please notify the office EARLY in the day (before 3:00). End of day can be very stressful in the office and by letting all parties know in advance, the easier we get out the door :) Also, if you choose to email please make sure to send the email to Mrs. Seiter (firstname.lastname@example.org ) and Mrs. Barton (email@example.com ), along with myself! This way in case any of us happen to be out of the building that day, the message is still received. Thanks so much!
Happy Birthday to Owen on September 10th!
