December 29 Happy New Year

Hope that all our families are enjoying a relaxing and fun break.  I am a sitting by a pool, enjoying Florida weather and preparing to begin a new year in first grade!  I have finally had an opportunity to sort through pictures of fun activities from the first part of the year and have uploaded some of the best to our photo gallery.  Enjoy some reminiscing as we finish up 2019.  I know the next year will bring lots of challenges and excitement in first grade – hope your family enjoys the best year yet!!  Happy new year!!!

December 8 Santa Bags

Students will be making Santa Bags this week to prepare for our holiday party.  Each child is encouraged to bring in 26 small items/treats place in the bag of classmates. Some ideas are pencils, holiday erasers, pencil sharpeners, books, balls, small toys, candy canes, snack treats, stickers, ornaments, note pads, crayons, markers, games, and other desk items or goodies. You may even want to wrap the items in wrapping paper, tissue, or foil. Creativity is appreciated!
