1st Grade News

First graders are very excited about being scientists!  They are investigating, discovering, exploring, and writing about Light and Sound!  With the use of a FOSS kit, students are doing 'hands on' investigations in the areas of Sound and Light.  So far, it's been a big hit with our young scientists!

Reading is heading into the final quarter of our school year.  We encourage you and your child to read daily to continue our momentum of learning.  Our students just received new Accelerated Reading goals, so reading is a necessity.  Many have a higher goal and the ability to achieve their goal by the end of the school year.
As teachers, we realize that ball season will soon be upon us as we hear conversations from our students about their teams.  Please be diligent in following through with your child's homework assignments.  After school time is precious, but just a little review with math homework makes a big difference in your child's performance at school.
