Hello families! My we have been busy little first graders this month! It's crazy how time flies, and how close we suddenly are to the end of the year. We still have so much to do, so make sure the kiddos continue to get enough sleep. I know it's hard with the longer days, but they really do so much better when they're well rested.

Reading groups are ending tomorrow, so we will really have time to do some fun bug activities! This is one of my favorite units all year so keep an eye on back packs for some great stuff.

Please send in any library books you still have at home, or the money to replace them. They will begin to hold kids in during recess who haven't brought them back yet.

If you still haven't brought your zoo permission slip back, please do so immediately. The deadline was last week, so we need them now.

Math and Literacy night is tomorrow Wednesday May 24th. This is a great family activity from 6:00-7:30. We hope to see you there!

Don't forget our music program is next Wednesday, June 1st at 7:00pm. Please try to get here a few minutes early so we can have the students prepared.

We are assessing beginning this week, and I'm so excited for the first graders to show you all how much they have progressed this year. Thanks for letting me have the opportunity to work with all of your fantastic kiddos!
