Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere in 1st Grade
I hope that this newsletter finds you well and that you had a wonderful and relaxing weekend. This week we are going to be doing a pumpkin investigation to prepare for our trip to the pumpkin patch. We will also be trying some foods that have pumpkin in them. If your child is allergic to anything please email me and let me know. Thank you. If you have not confirmed plans for the pumpkin patch field trip with me please email me and let me know as soon as possible. We are in charge of this the Halloween Tiger Day so more information on help will be coming out soon. If you have not signed up for your parent teacher conference please do so as soon as you can. Thank you for all that you do and for your continued support. May you have a wonderful day and a blessed week!
