There’s a lot going home today in our red daily folders. Most importantly our FIELD TRIP flyer and our CLASS DIRECTORY flyer. Let me know if you have any questions. Have a good one!


UPDATE: The show starts at 3pm, but Koo Koo Kanga Roo plays at 5pm. 

If anyone decides to go to Koo Koo Kanga Roo, find me in the crowd so we can take a silly photo together for the class website! I’ll be there! If you are asking yourself… “what is Koo Koo Kanga Roo?!?” All you need to do is scroll down a couple posts or visit

Homework begins this week. The homework choice board is located in the front of your student’s red daily folder. In short, complete two of the boxes over the course of the week and initial. If they have anything they make or tangible they can bring it on Friday. Please do not hesitate if you have any questions regarding the homework. Thanks!

Tomorrow Tuesday September 12th from 6-8pm is back to school night! There is a PTA meeting at 6pm followed time in the classroom. The time in the classroom is divided up into two sessions in case you have other students at Cunningham. I’ll talk about homework, first grade expectations, ways to help your first grader, what we’ve been doing the first month of school, show off our room, and answer any questions. It’s all fairly painless and it’s a great excuse for me to brag about the class. Hope you all can make it!
