Your first graders are working hard and practice their skills. We are getting a good start on the year.
- Practice words for the week with your child. The more practice, the better the words are learned.
- Read books with your child every night. First graders learn reading more quickly when they hear adults read to them regularly.
- Please use the restroom before coming to school. This will reduce interruptions to instruction.
- All t-shirt orders must be completed by this Friday. (Send $5 and the size, please.)
