On Friday, December 22th Mrs. Donelson’s class will be having brunch together in the classroom. We will be serving pancakes, fruit, bagels, milk and other delicious treats. All parents and younger siblings are welcome to attend this special brunch. Brunch will be served around 10:30am. (Please do not feed your child a huge breakfast before school.) Following brunch, the children will complete a few winter crafts and play some games. Immediately after the craft and games, the children will be watching Frosty the Snowman. The children are invited to wear their pajamas this day so as to be comfy and cozy for this fun event. If you would like to donate some candy canes or small chocolates for the party you may send them in this week.
Thanks for all your support!
Our November PBIS celebration is almost here and we are celebrating with a few games of TURKEY BOWLING! The party will be celebrated on Wednesday, November 29th. Students will be bowling with a rubber bowling ball to try and knock down three “turkey pins”. They will also be challenged by trying to knock the pins over while bowling backwards, hopping on one foot, blindfolded, and other fun and silly tricks.
Students will participate in this event if they have demonstrated positive behavior throughout the month of November and have less than 5 card flips.
Thanks for your support,
The PBIS team
**In the spirit of the holidays and to keep our turkey theme, 5 turkeys will be donated to the Salvation Army Food Bank in Dearborn Heights funded by the Haigh Spirit committee.
Below you will find the link to the new class schedule time slots for the book fair.
Please see that our start time has changed from 9:00am to 9:30am on Tuesday, November 14th.
Today and Monday I will not be meeting with reading groups so that I can individually assess each of your children and see their progression for the month. I strongly encourage you to continue to read each and every night with your children. Thank you for all your continued support!
FIELD TRIP REMINDERS!
- We are asking that all first graders dress appropriately for Thursday’s weather. It is supposed to be in the low 50s, so a warm jacket and a hat is a good idea.
- All children must pack a snack, lunch and a drink for a picnic lunch at the zoo. All bags and containers MUST be disposable.
- Children need to arrive at school on time. The bus will leave promptly at 9 a.m.
IF YOU ARE A CHAPERONE:
Please come into the school with your student in the morning (do not just go right to the zoo, we need to take attendance and assign you your group before we get there). We will all leave together. Most parents follow the bus.
As a reminder, you are responsible for your own transportation to and from the zoo, along with driving your child. Parking is $7 per car. Carpooling is a great idea to help save money. Ms. Otto will collect parking money and pay for the number of cars parking before we enter the zoo.
You will be assigned a group of students while at the zoo. If you would like to take your child home right from the zoo, please see your child’s teacher to sign them out.
We also recommend bringing a backpack to carry your group’s lunches and coats.
Thank you! 🙂
I just wanted to remind everyone that our First Grade Parent Meeting will be this Thursday, the 12th, from 3:45-4:30 in the library.
The purpose of the meeting is to inform parents and family members of the first grade expectations, daily curriculum, standardized tests, etc. We also want to familiarize you with our daily routine and practices that we are using the classroom. This is also a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
I look forward to seeing you there 🙂
