Reading groups are up and running. Please check your child’s back pack for his/her red reading folder. Inside you may find a book. Please read to the post it note book marker, but kindly do not read beyond this point. You do not need to sign the post it note. I’d love for you to read together each night, however I do not keep track of students who did not have a chance to read at home.
Thank you for sending labels in for the Eshleman Run for Funds. It’s not too late. We really appreciate your labels and donations. So far, both first grades have raised the most money for our school! Keep sending in those labels! Thank you!
You may notice the kids have not earned as many golden tickets this week compared to past weeks. This is because we are now working to earn individual recognition (golden tickets) as well as group recognition (house points and Mrs. Potato head). Students have many ways to be recognized for their teamwork, good behavior, hard work, kindness, etc…. Sometimes they just hear a kind word to let them know they are doing well in school. I’m so proud of how far everyone has come in learning our school rules and settling into our routine!
Please be sure to send all transportation changes to our school secretary. It is important that you contact her since our class is usually dismissed to go home by our specialist teachers.
Lunch money should be sent to school in a baggy or envelope marked with your child’s name and 1-T. Thank you!
