                                              4/15/19 - 4/19/19 - SPRING BREAK

 

Remember that our spring carnival is April 26th. The first grade class is responsible for the “Pamper Me” basket for the silent auction. If anyone can get a manicure/pedicure donated that would be great! Thank you for sending in ANYTHING to go in our basket: candles, nail polish and remover, cotton balls, lotions, bubble bath, etc.  

Our school dance is this Friday, 5/12 from 2:00 - 3:15. Please send in Oreos and Chips Ahoy cookies if possible. This is in place of our party.

Our K-2 musical and school art show is Tuesday the 29th.

In math, we will be working on fractions. 1.4 The student will a) represent and solve practical problems involving equal sharing with two or four sharers; and b) represent and name fractions for halves and fourths, using models.

In science, we will be studying plants. 1.4 The student will investigate and understand that plants have basic life needs and functional parts and can be classified according to certain characteristics. Key concepts include a) plants need nutrients (“food”), air, water, light, and a place to grow; b) basic parts of plants (seeds, roots, stems, leaves, blossoms, flowers, and fruits); and c) plants can be classified based on a variety of characteristics (edible/non edible, flower/nonflowering, evergreen/deciduous).

Please have your child read over spring break!!

Thanks,

Mrs. Bumgarner
