Notes and News:


Tomorrow is picture day! As a reminder, pictures can be ordered online or with the packet that was sent home last week.  Please let the office know if you have any questions about ordering. First Grade is scheduled for 1:05 tomorrow. Students may choose to wear a uniform or “classy dress.”  Clothes do not have to be fancy, however they should follow free dress day guidelines.

The deadline for Orange Ruler donations online is tonight at 11:59 pm! It is not too late!!  First grade is currently in 5th place so the kids are hoping we will keep or improve our standing so we can do the pig race on Fun Run day (the top 5 classes get to participate.)  Thanks so much for all the generous support that has been given by you and your friends and families!

Our class earned top prize for the Chinook Book fundraiser for having top sales as well as 100% participation! We get a class ice cream and pinata party!  Woo hoo!!  Way to go, First Grade Families!!
