First Grade Sea Otter News
What an amazing week! Habitat Day was a huge success. I was so impressed by everyone’s projects. Thank you for your time and help creating, researching, and transporting projects. If you didn’t have a chance to stop by, we will be sending home pictures of your children with their habitats soon. We also made windsocks to remember the day of Pentecost and the 7 gifts that the Holy Spirit has given us.
Field Trip on Tuesday!
Tuesday, May 29th first grade is headed to the Woodland Park Zoo. We will eat lunch there. Please send a disposable sack lunch with your child. Please also pack a separate snack for your child to eat when we return to school. Students need to wear a uniform top with the St. John logo (red shirt or navy sweatshirt) and good walking shoes. Please drop off booster seats (if your child requires one) to the hallway outside of XDC in the morning. Signs for “Feeney” and “Peoples” will be posted. Make sure your booster is labeled with your name!
Summer Conference Sign Ups: This time of year I like to offer optional conferences as a way for you to check in on progress, second grade readiness, and ideas to help your child over the summer. If you do not sign up for a conference, I will send home a summer packet and student summer contract with ideas for things you can work on over the summer. J
