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!
