Dear First Grade Families,
I hope everyone is doing well. Happy last week of school!
Our last day of online school is Thursday, June 11. On Thursday, between 10:00 – 11:30 a.m., there will be a student and parent drive through in front of the school on Silvery Lane. During the drive through, you can get your Haigh school yearbook and wave good-bye to all of the teachers as you stay in your car. If you can’t go to the drive through, if you ordered a yearbook, it will be mailed to your house. Also, the student report cards will be mailed home. You can also check parent connect to view your child’s report card online. There is a different grading system for the last report card. Grading will include an M for meeting expectations; P for progressing, meaning some work was turned in online; or LP for limited participation turning in online assignments.
For extra practice during the summer, your child can continue to use Reading Eggs, Math Seeds, RAZ Kids and Zearn to maintain and develop academic skills. When my children were young, we always made time to do some academic work during the summer so they would be prepared for school in the fall. It makes a huge difference in your child’s academic performance if you take the time to do this.
Here are the assignments for the week. I am posting assignments for the week on my blog, through Class dojo.com, and through readworks.org. Please help your child complete the assignments. At this point, students will be earning credit for doing school work and grades will be entered in the grade book. Students will receive a report card for the online work your child is doing at home. Please email me anytime if you have questions regarding your child’s online assignments.

Thank you so much for all of the help with the online assignments. This has been a very challenging time for everyone. Parents and students have done a great job adjusting to online learning. I will miss everyone and I hope you have a wonderful summer. Please help your child make time to read and do some math work over the summer. This will help your child maintain and develop academic skills so they are ready for second grade in the fall.
