I just want to start by saying what a wonderful year this has been! This class is so sweet, thoughtful, and FUN!
We are finishing up on our last items on the first grade curriculum. We will finish economics and measurement next week.
We have a very busy two weeks left so I want to make sure to let you know all of the exciting activities we have planned.
We are in need of toilet paper rolls and empty plastic water/soda bottles for an upcoming project. You can begin sending them in tomorrow.
We are practicing for the Moving Up Ceremony that will be on the last day of school. On the last day of school the kids need to wear KHAKI AND/OR WHITE. We want to look like we are going on a jungle adventure. I can’t tell you more or Ms. Aveson will kill me. 🙂
Friday, May 31 – Drive- In Movie. You can still signup to come or if you want to come last minute, you can pay when you get there. The Rilees are looking forward to putting out our picnic blanket and watching the show! This is sure to be a fun event!!
Monday, June 3 – Crazy Hair Day
Wednesday, June 5 – Apricot the clown will be coming to do a cool magic show. She will NOT be dressed in her full clown gear.
Thursday, June 6 – Mrs. Manning will be my substitute that day. Mr.Stone, a grandparent of former students, will bring his Ford Model A to teach children about cars from long ago.
Friday, June 7 – We will have our Dolphin Store. This is the culminating event for our economics unit. The kids will be producers and make items to sell at the Dolphin Store. We will produce and price these items. Then they will be consumers and shop at the Dolphin Store with the Dolphin Dollars they earned when they working in the Dolphin Factory.
Monday, June 10 – Career Day- This a super fun day planned with lots of cool information about cool jobs. The kids will also get a chance to “Touch a Truck” and the Glen Allen Seniors will do a walk through the school in their graduation gear. The kids are free to dress up as they would in their future careers. NO props please.
Tuesday, June 11 – STUDENT HOLIDAY
Wednesday, June 12 – End of the Year Party – This will be at 1:45. Look for more information to come to you soon! We will also have our first grade yearbook signing that morning. If your child ordered a yearbook, make sure she/he has it on this day and a pen to sign books with. If they do not have one, that is no problem. We will have memory books they can use.
June 13 – The kids will eat in the classroom or outside this day. Please try to refrain from sending in peanut butter with lunch that day. The cafe will still be open to purchase lunch.
June 14 – LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!! This is a half-day. We are looking forward to the Moving Up Ceremony in the morning. This is a fun event for the whole family! It begins at 9:00, but you will want to get here a little earlier to sign in and setup your lawn chairs. Parents are free to take their children home after the ceremony, just be sure to sign them out.
Thanks again for all you have done to make this a GREAT year!!
