I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend and were able to enjoy the weather! We are transitioning back into our routine after winter break. I was so happy to see all my students return back to school with fun stories of their time away!
This week we have focused on making predictions and connections with fictional text. In math, we focused on part-whole relationships for numbers up to 10. In science, we investigated the basic relationships between the sun and Earth. The students have enjoyed learning all about the sun! Please ask them what they have learned!
We have had quite a few sick students in first grade this week. Please see the following important note from our school clinic to help keep our class healthy!
Parents- as a reminder, the following is the Henrico County Public Schools ill student policy. These measures are in place and must be followed to ensure a healthy learning environment for ALL students.
Students should not be in the school if they have the following:
- A fever of 100.4 degrees or greater before taking a fever-reducing medication.
- Vomiting or diarrhea because of illness
- An unknown rash or possible contagious condition (requires MD note before return)
- Are unable to focus due to: pain, chronic health condition and/ or acute illness
- Flu-like illness (with or without fever)- headache, fatigue, cough, aches, weakness, and sore throat.
A child should be free of symptoms of contagious disease (fever, vomiting, diarrhea, suspicious rash, etc.) for at least 24 hours before returning to school. If your child has been vomiting or having diarrhea, they should also be able to eat a full meal without any GI symptoms.
Gifted Identification Information:
Please note that parent referrals for gifted identification will be accepted from January 6 to January 24, 2020. As you consider your decision to refer your child, please be sure to speak with his/her teacher to discuss any gifted qualities being observed in the classroom on a consistent basis. Referrals should be submitted in writing (email is acceptable) to Jennifer Rhoden at firstname.lastname@example.org during these designated dates. No referrals will be accepted after January 24. Subject line of email should state Gifted Referral, and the email should include student’s first and last name, grade level, teacher, and area of referral (English, Math or Both areas).
