Martin Luther King

We will be talking about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this week. Please take a few minutes to discuss him with your children. There is a wonderful video on you tube that you can watch {HERE}. This is one of my favorite books about Martin Luther King, it made such a moving and powerful video. The kids loved it today, and would enjoy watching it with you!

Here is our newsletter for this week.

Make sure to drive carefully in this weather and be safe. Are you signed up for Flash Alert yet? Make sure you sign up now! This will send you a text and/or email as soon as the decision is made to cancel or postpone the school day. This information is much faster than waiting for the news. Have a great rest of the (short) week!

For more specifics of the activities we will be doing this week, visit my first grade teacher blog First Grade Fanatics.

New IXL website

The Molalla River School District recently purchased IXL for the whole district. So that means we have a new website to go to and log in. All other info will remain the same with your child's accounts, like their awards, usernames and passwords. The only thing that is changing is the site they go to in order to log in. Click below to go the the new website, and don't forget to save it!


Hopefully your child is getting atleast a few chances a week to get on IXL and practice the math concepts we've learned so far. This practice is vital to their math success. Thanks for the support, and have fun on IXL!

Happy New Year!

Oh my goodness!!! I blinked and suddenly a few months have gone by without any blog posts! Time flies when you're having fun. :-) I apologize, and will try not to let that happen again. I hope that everyone had a great Christmas Break, and that they kids are all ready to start back to school. This short week may be a little rough, so please make sure kids get early bed times.

Thank you to all of the wonderful parents who joined us for our Christmas party. Here are a few pictures I thought I'd share.

Since it's a short week, our weekly newsletter won't come home until next Monday. Have a great rest of the week!

And thanks again for the thoughtful Christmas presents. I felt very loved!
