I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend together! We have had such a fun first few days of school. We have been practicing school procedures and rules, while working hard in our classroom! I have seen so many great helpers and they are getting along so nicely! I have enjoyed every minute with your child! :)
Last week, we began to dig into our Wonders Reading curriculum by learning about what makes us special. We are working on letter sounds and formations. In math, we are starting our GoMath! series and learning about numbers 0-5 this week.
**Don't forget that Open House is THIS Thursday, September 7th from 6pm-7pm. There are two sessions at 6:00 and 6:30. I will be sharing a lot of information about our classroom and it is a time for you to also ask me questions! Please try to make other arrangements for your kiddos so that the parents can easily listen and ask questions.
Mrs. Appel will be gone this Friday, September 8th and Monday, September 11th. This will be their first time with a substitute teacher! Mrs. Young will be subbing in our classroom. She used to be a teacher, she loves kids, and is an amazing sub! :) Two important things will be happening the days that I am gone....
-Friday we will be practicing an off site evacuation. It will only take about 25-30 minutes to walk up and back. We will walk up the hill to the Lillis Chapel at Mission Ridge. Last week we practiced two fire drills and the students did amazing!!
-Monday is picture day!! Please make sure to order pictures and send the order form to school with your student. I will make sure the money gets to the right place! I believe you can order online as well at mylifetouch.com.
