Snack & Birthday Treats
We have snack each day at morning recess at 9:45am. First graders may bring in a special birthday treat to share with their classmates during morning recess. At this time we have 25 students and no food allergies.
Every Friday we welcome a parent into our classroom to read books to our class. We like to keep this a surprise, (Shh, no sharing the date with your child!) When arriving please check in with the office.
Each week a student will be our star student. The star student will complete an "All About Me" poster, be the classroom helper On Friday your child can bring in their favorite snack and a small stuff animal to share with the class.
The cold weather has arrived please make sure you pack those coats. In the event of indoor recess first grades will do movement exercises, blocks, legos and board games.
