Happy September students and parents! This is going to be a great month.  We will be reading some fun stories in class with our reading program and learn how to write a proper paragraph.  We will write in our journal every day in class.  We will also be learning the class routine, rules, and get to know each other.  I will try my best to send out this newsletter once a month keep you updated as to what is going on in our classroom and the school.

We will have snack everyday in class.  Please send in a healthy peanut/tree but free snack and extra drink for your son or daughter to enjoy.  There is NO HOT LUNCH until Tuesday September 12th.  ALL CHILDREN MUST BRING A LUNCH FROM HOME ON SEPTEMBER 7TH- SEPTEMBER 11TH.
