To celebrate the 100th day of school, we are encouraging all of the students to dress like 100 year olds. Throughout the day, students will take part in 100th day activities to celebrate our efforts during these first 100 days.

Check the red folders for lots of info about our upcoming field trip, sight words, and our new homework. Have a good one!

In preparation for 2nd grade we will be changing homework. Each month there will be a choice board. The students will choose 2 activities to do a week. All tangible items that the students create will be due on Fridays. Students are still expected to read daily.

The students will start this new homework the week of January 23rd. We will start off with a choice board. Please do not hesitate to email or call if you have any questions regarding the new homework format. Thanks!

On February 23rd, we will travel to Zach Scott to see a performance of “Elephant and Piggie.”  Buses will depart at 9:15am.  The show begins at 10am.  We will be back on campus at 12:00.  We will eat lunch upon returning to campus. The field trip form that has all the information went home today in your student’s red folder. Let me know if you have any questions about the upcoming field trip. It’s going to be a fun performance!
