Thank you so much for taking the time to meet with me during parent-teacher conferences. I was so happy to share the things that I love about your kids, and to let you know about the good work that they are doing so far in first grade. I am very proud of our class, and I am so grateful for the support that I have received from each of you.
This week we have been learning human body systems: the skeletal system, the muscular system, the circulatory system, and the digestive system. We also talked about ways to stay healthy: eating healthy food, exercising, sleeping, getting doctor check-ups and vaccinations, and staying clean.
FIRST GRADE C.E.T. = Our human body C.E.T. activities are this Friday. Thank you to all who have volunteered to help, and to those who have donated supplies.
PICTURE DAY - School pictures will be taken on TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1st. Please dress your child in his/her school uniform for school pictures. If you would like to order photos, send the school order form with your child that morning. The kids will carry the order forms to the photographer as we take our photos.
BOOK REPORTS & READING CALENDARS - Book reports and reading calendars are DUE MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 30th. Your child will read a fictional book and decorate the t-shirt to reflect one of the characters from the story. The t-shirt should be cut out and glued onto a piece of construction paper or other decorative paper.
CONGRATULATIONS to Ayden for winning the book fair coloring contest for our class. Nice job, Ayden!
Have a great weekend!
I hope that you have had some good conversations with your children this week as we celebrated Red Ribbon Week. We have been talking about the importance of developing good habits like taking care of our bodies and our minds, and saying no to friends who ask us to do things that we know are not right. We also talked about sticking together and encouraging our friends to make good choices, and standing up for each other when we see bullies trying to hurt others.
We had a wonderful presentation from the Bobby Lawrence Karate studio at our school assembly today. It was a great way to wrap up our week, and to reinforce all that we have learned this week.
If you would like to know more about getting your child involved in the Bobby Lawrence Karate program, they are sponsoring a free class for all Odyssey families tomorrow at noon. A flyer was sent home with your child today.
This week we read some more Anansi stories, and we created an “Anansi” spider art project. We also learned about symbols of the state of Utah. How many of them do you know? What is the: Utah state capital? flower? tree? bird? insect? fish?
Congratulations to our class for winning our second Golden Book Award for having exceptional library manners.
