First Grade Sailor News
Welcome to the wonderful season of Easter. The Church celebrates for the next 50 days! Alleluia! The students came back well rested and ready to learn. In math, first graders wrapped up graphing and interpreting data. They have also wrapped up their desert habitat unit with a cactus experiment and lizard art project.
It’s Auction time! Get your bids ready for a wonderful night! Remember to be on the lookout for these items!
Afternoon at the Cinema
Spend the afternoon at school with the Primary teachers making ice cream sundaes and watching a movie! Remember to bring your pillow and sleeping bag. This will be on Friday, May 19 from 4:30-6:00.
Mrs Todd’s/Miss Thornton’s 1st Grade Project
“Sit and Enjoy the Summer”
Sit back and enjoy the summer in two beautifully hand-painted Adirondack chairs.
The students in Mrs. Todd’s first grade class had fun embellishing the chairs with delightful bug characters.
These silly fingerprint bugs will have you smiling all year round. What a beautiful way to capture a child’s youth
Mrs. Todd’s Bedtime Story Corner
I can come visit your child at your home and read him/her a bedtime story or we can play a board game!
This week information was sent home regarding Habitat Day. Please take a moment to read the pink “To Do List” all the way through. The habitat-planning sheet will be sent home with a note if it was approved/not approved. For example if your child chooses a dolphin, this would not be approved because there are many types of dolphins. If you child chooses a spinner dolphin it will be approved. Please do not begin research or building your habitat until you get approval from your teacher. On May 24th, parents are invited to tour habitat projects at the end of the day from 2:30 – 3:00. A detailed schedule of the day will be posted with other available visiting times.
We will leave for the zoo at 9:15 on May 19 and return by 1:00. We will have lunch there so please do not order hot lunch for this day! Field Trip Permission slips will go home on Monday, May 1st.
