First Grade Newsletter September 18-22
Good Morning! I hope that you have been having a wonderful week and a wonderful day. On Friday we will be having our summer reading celebration in the morning. The students are allowed to wear PJs to school and we will be having pancakes. Friday will also be our trash bag pick up day. Thank you for all the trash bags that you sold! A Reminder that next Monday we will not be having school.
I know that this is a little early to be talking about our classroom project for the Auction but I wanted to ask for any ideas that we might have. I am hoping that we can have the project done before we leave for Christmas break! Thank you for all that you do and for your support. Please make sure to check out the entire newsletter for pictures from last week. Have a wonderful day!!!!
