First Grade Weekly Update

First grade made it through our first week of full days with flying colors.

  • If you wish to order Scholastic Books, please do so online by Wednesday, September 11.
  • I will create a schedule for volunteers to come listen to readers beginning in October. Let me know if you want to be added to the sign up sheet for Thursday or Friday (8:15-9 a.m.) It will probably work out to 1 time a month. Be sure that you have the Virtus training complete and the Fingerprinting.
