Happy Halloween! (and other announcements)

Posted by Clarke McGibben on 10/29/2021 4:00:00 PM

Hello First Grade Families,


What a week! What a month! It seemed to have flown by so quickly!

Please see below for reminders and announcements.


  • Please be sure you have signed up for a conference. If you did not get the email, let me know and I can resend the link to Sign-up Genius. 
  • Next week we will be doing some assessment for report cards. If your child is going to be absent, please let me know as soon as possible. 
  • Special next week is art. We will have a library check-out on Friday. Have your child return their books by Thursday. 
  • This week we studied digraphs! Specifically: sh, ch, th, wh, and ph. A game will be coming home today. Please play it at least twice over the weekend. Directions are included!
  • Check out the November calendar in this BOOM folder. Many important dates are coming up! 
  • After Halloween, it may be tempting for your child to sneak a bunch of candy into their backpack. Please make sure that stays at home (other than one or two in the lunchbox...I get it). There can be no candy swapping and having candy in the backpacks may lead to sugar overdoses. Please...no thank you. :) 


I hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween weekend! 


Happy Haunting!


Ms. McGibben
