Important Notes: Week #6

Go Eagles!!!  We had a fun Friday showing off our school spirit and cheering with the super fans.  It sounds like the Homecoming Football game was a good one. :) :) Check our google photo stream to see more cute pictures!

October 1 – Library Day

Please help your child return his/her library book to school today.

October 2 – Vision Screening

October 3 – Crazy Hair Day!!!

Wear a hat or style your hair in a crazy, colorful way!!

October 5 – Walk-a-thon

We are pumped up and excited to walk in support of our school!!!  Plan to dress your first grader in 80’s gear and comfy shoes on Friday.  The first graders will be walking on the track from 9:45-10:30.  All parents are welcome to join us outside to walk on the track.  Donation envelopes can be sent in on or before Monday, October 8.

This week our first homework packet will be sent home.  Please look for this in your child’s blue folder on Monday.  Directions are included right on the page.  For more information about homework in first grade please check out this link –> HOMEWORK.

This week your child will bring home some important reading homework too!  On Friday, an envelope came home in your child’s blue folder containing sight words to practice.  Plan to keep this envelope in a safe place, so you and your child can practice these sight words quickly every night.  New sight words will be sent home when your child moves on to a new set at school.  Sometimes this will happen in just a couple of days.  Other times it may take a week or two before your child receives a new set.  Please save all of your child’s sight words, so you can go back and review some of the older ones periodically.  Knowing many words by sight will help to boost your child confidence and fluency as a reader.  Thank you so much for your support at home!

***Look for an e-mail later this week with details about how to help with our sight words at school.  I would love to have some parent/grandparent volunteers come to school to practice with our first graders each week.***
