Dear Parents and Guardians,
To help us celebrate another fantastic school year, we will be having Field Day on Monday, May 14, 2018. For this Field Day event students will work through stations with their class to develop skills they have learned in physical education and have tons of fun! The schedule for the event is as follows:
9:00 AM – 11:00 AM: Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grades
1:00 PM – 3:00 PM: 3rd, 4th and 5th Grades
On May 14, students need to wear clothes that will allow them to be physically active outside, including tennis shoes. They need to bring a water bottle. Students are highly encouraged to bring a water bottle that can be refilled at the refill station that we will provide.
We are looking for one parent from each classroom to donate a treat for the entire class to enjoy after their session. We are also pre-selling Fla-vor-ice as a cool treat for students to enjoy during the activities. The cost for the Fla-vor-ice is $0.50, only one Fla-vor-ice per student please. Fla-vor-ice money is due by Monday, May 7.
Lastly, we need 15 parent volunteers for both sessions to help run stations. If you are interested in volunteering, fill out the lower portion and return it to Mr. Peecher. Please, contact Mr. Peecher with any questions.
Thanks! The PBIS/Field Day Committee email@example.com
*We will only be able to accommodate students & parent volunteers for this event.

We will begin our MStep testing this week. Our test days will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The testing will be in the morning only. The students are allowed to bring in a healthy snack for our break on these days. It will be a 15 minute break so the snack needs to be consumed during this time, along with a bathroom and drink break.
We have been studying internal and external structures of animals. This week we looked at how we can move our arms using our muscles. Our class made a robot finger to model how our fingers work. They can create an entire robot hand if they want to do one of the extension activities.
Please come and join the first graders as we celebrate the ending of our Economics unit with Market Day! Market Day is all about determining wants and needs, producing goods and services and trading. Family and friends are invited to help celebrate the world of producers and consumers by shopping at our market from 9am-11am on Tuesday, April 24th. All goods will range from .10 cents to $1.00. All Haigh students will have the opportunity to shop at our market, so if your child would like to purchase something, please send them to school with money. Hope to see you Tuesday!
Thanks for your support,
The First Grade Teachers
