Wax Museum

September19

Just a reminder that our Wax Museum is in the morning!  The students have worked hard and are excited to present their “Change Makers!”

Remember that you are invited to join us from 8:30-9:00am in the Cafe. 

Please check in at the office and head on in to the Cafe. 

Please do not plan to arrive early as the students will be setting up.

The doors will open at 8:30 and parents will be walking around to visit each Wax Model.  Stay the whole time or just pop in during the window.  We do need parents to leave at 9:00am as the rest of the school has been invited to visit our Wax Museum as well and we need to make space. 🙂 

Students should come with all props at normal school arrival time.  Students should already be in costume if they have one.  

Thank you for your support.

Keeping Up With the Klubhouse

Reminders:

  • Field Trip forms were due today.  If you haven’t send your child’s permission slip in and the payment, please do so on Monday.  As always, if you need financial assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.  On that same note, if you would like to sponsor a student please send in $15 in an envelope marked 1st grade field trip sponsor.  We greatly appreciate any extra donations!

  • We will be visiting the library every Thursday.  Students are required to check out 1 fiction (chapter book) and 1 non-fiction book of their choosing.  Students may check out a third book if they desire, but school policy is that they may only have 1 fiction (chapter book) checked out at a time.  Please let me know if you have any questions about these expectations.  

  • The week of 9/24-9/28 is fall break and there will be no school!  Enjoy your break!

  • Publix Night is coming up on Thursday 10/4

  • All Pro Dads on Friday 10/5

  • Plan ahead for early release during Conference week 10/15-10/19.  Students will be dismissed at 12:20 pm.  

IB Unit 1 on Change is coming to an end.  We have enjoyed our inquiry into the Revolutionary War and change makers.  Students have chosen a historical change maker to represent in our end of the unit Wax Museum next Thursday 9/20.  Parents are invited to join us from 8:30-9:00am in the Cafe.  Students are completing research and preparations in class, but may need some assistance with their props for the Wax Museum.  I have explained to the students that this is their project, not yours. 🙂  They will continue to have time next week to work on this as well.  I look forward to seeing you all Thursday morning!

Reminders:

  • Tomorrow is Back to Football Friday!  Students may wear NFL football shirts and athletic shorts.  

  • Tomorrow night is Family Fun Night! 5:00-7:00 at Teasely.

  • Field Trip form went home for the Chattahoochee Nature Center.  Please send in the permission slip and payment.  If you are interested in being a chaperone for this trip, email me!

  • School Council elections will happen on Monday.  We have quite a few kiddos who would like to run for our representatives.  They will need to be prepared to give their speech on Monday morning.  Speeches should not last more than 2 minutes.

  • Some grades have been posted to ParentVue, but there are many more to come this 9 weeks.  It is hard to get a lot of grades in the first few weeks of school.  Two Weekend Writing papers went home today.  They are graded and I have conferenced with each of your students.  I would suggest that you look through these assignments and help your child to make corrections.

August17
  • Picture day is Monday!  Wear standard school attire.

  • Spirit Night is at Los Bravos Tuesday!

  • Friday we have our first field trip to the Fire Safety Village (Everyone filled out the forms at Meet and Greet or I caught up with you)

Fire Safety:

We have begun our study of fire safety and the kiddos have a workbook that they will complete here at school.  We had a visitor from a firefighter today to discuss the book, the upcoming trip, and to introduce the topic.  We learned some very important things today!  Please ask your child to tell you about it.  Students have the workbooks in their take home folders today because they need to complete a Home Safety Checklist on pages 2 and 3 as well as draw an escape route from their room on page 11.  Please discuss this with your child and use this time to create a true safety plan your family will follow in the event of an emergency! The workbooks need to come back to school on Monday, but you have until Tuesday to complete the checklist and route. (So, it can come home again on Monday if need be)
