Beginning of the year!


What a great start of first grade we have had! The students have all been adjusting to their new lockers, friends and to their desks!  The desks in the room are a beginning step in learning how to organize personal space. At this point, because they are somewhat novel, the students can be seen opening and closing them multiple times in a day! I suppose they are checking to make sure that everything is in it’s place! Throughout the year we will spend time organizing this space because developmentally, the concept of taking care of one’s personal space is an important lesson, so we are taking the time to discuss it.

Hopefully you and your child are getting used to the daily routine of brining home their plastic folders and showing the "Peek at the Week" that is inside. This "peek" is fairly important....and a way to inform you and your child as to what to expect each day. It is also a place for you to send little thoughts along the way. When homework starts, the homework column will give you the assignment for each night. As for now, your child's folder and the peek at the week need to come back every day. Each week we will exchange for it a new week. Please make sure that your child’s folder is cleaned out daily so that there will be room for new items the next day.

I am sure that your child has already shared their excitement about their senior buddies. It is an awesome connection with the seniors of the school and your child will get many chances to meet up with them throughout the year. Please look below to see the kids pairings. On Tuesday morning, the senior buddies took  the 1st graders to All School Chapel and sat with them through the service. There were lots of big smiles on both young and old!
