Grade 1 Gazette


Wow!!  What a week of Missouri weather!  You never know what the weather will bring.   I sure would like to check Punxsutawney Phil’s credentials. 

Picnic on the Prairie
This Sunday TMP will host Picnic on the Prairie.  There will be walking tacos, honey ice cream from Walk About Acres, raffle items, and they will auction off the class baskets.  There will also be a live band, Artie and the Univibes, performing.  Bring your lawn chairs and your appetite and come support TMP on Sunday.  The Book Fair will be open in the library during the picnic.  And to make an exciting afternoon even more exciting, 1st grade will have their Art Show in the hallway.  Each piece is 25 cents and all of the proceeds will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (as voted on by the students).  I have enjoyed watching the kids get excited about measuring and sharing their art, but more importantly, how determined they are to raise money for kids with cancer.

End of the Year
It is hard to believe that we are to the point of talking about the end of the year.  Next week will be the last week for library checkout.  All books will need to be returned to the library the following week.  If you have any items from the literacy bags at home, please send those in. 
We have begun end of the year reading assessments.  Next week the kids will take the final District Writing Assessment.  They also have a final math facts assessment coming up.  Please practice those math facts at home.  Next week will be the last week for homework.
