Miss Nina and I can't thank you enough for your amazing support this year.  We have loved working with your children.  They are tremendously talented, intelligent, and kind.  It has been an honor to share this time of learning with you and the students in 1H.

We wish you all the best for a safe and relaxing summer, full of reading.  We hope you enjoy special moments with your loved ones.   Please stay in touch!

I hope you enjoy our latest VoiceThread, showcasing the children's research on their chosen minibeast!
It's hard to believe that we only have one week left of school!  The children are getting very excited about our concert on Tuesday, and they are starting to talk about their summer plans.  Even with our special events next week, we will continue with our learning in all subjects.

As a reminder, here are the special dates/times for next week:

Tuesday, June 12, 2:30 pm - First Grade Concert
Wednesday, June 13, 8:45 am - Ebook presentation for 1H Parents
Thursday, June 14 - Class Splash swim time with our 3H reading buddies
Friday, June 15 - Last Day of School, dismissal at 11:30 am

Thank you, as always, for your continued support.  Miss Nina and I are so grateful to be part of this dynamic learning community!

Thank you all for your understanding as due to today's stormy weather the school decided to reschedule Field Day.  As soon as we learn the new date, we will pass the information on to you.  As a reminder, the field day lunch plan for a picnic lunch will be implemented then.

I hope to see you tomorrow for the PTO Spring Fair!  My children always look forward to these fun events sponsored by our fabulous PTO!  Yay, Parents!!!

Our last two weeks of school are very busy, so I am trying to keep the google calendar updated on this site.  If you have any questions, please send them along!  Here are some notes.

All library books are due June 5th.  Please help your child remember to return all books on Monday or Tuesday next week.  Then, summer checkout will begin Friday, June 8.  Mrs. Matter recommends that first graders have their parents to help make their selections (and to help carry all 15 books!)  We would like to invite you to visit the library with your child on Wednesday morning, June 13.  Mrs. Matter also has a brand new collection of iPad books that parents can borrow.    Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 13 at 8:45 in the library.  Mrs. Matter will have a special session just for 1H Parents to walk you through the process to borrow iPad books for the summer.  (UPDATE:  There are ebooks for iPad, but there are also audiobooks for iPad, iPhone, iPod, and Android devices, too!)  Immediately following this presentation for parents, you will have the opportunity to take your child to the library to make summer reading choices.   Please bring your iPad if you will attend this session!  If you need to schedule a different time during the school day to take your child to the library for summer checkout, please just let me know.  You are also welcome to take your child to the library before or after school June 8 - 14th for summer checkout.

Our field trip to Powsin Park is scheduled for Wednesday, June 6th!  Here's hoping for nice weather!  Of course, please plan on joining us on Tuesday, June 12th, 2:30 pm for the First Grade Minibeast Musical Extravaganza.  On Thursday, June 14th, the children will need their swimming gear, as we will have a special "Class Splash" swim time with our third grade reading buddies.  On Friday, June 15th, we will mark the last day of school with an assembly at 9:00 am and dismissal at 11:30. 

Move-up day was last Friday, but Miss Nina was able to snap a few pictures that will give you a glimpse of your child's excitement to visit a second grade classroom.  

See you tomorrow!
