Our Field Trip

I hope you all asked your children about our Field Trip to the Ruth Lilly Health Education Center. They had a great time! They participated in interactive presentations about nutrition, bones, muscles, dental hygiene, exercise, and germs. I think their favorite part was meeting Billy Bones and TAM! A special thanks to those parents who went along and helped.

I sent Scholastic book order forms home this week. If you decide to order any books for your child, please return the order form and check by next Friday, September 28.

Thanks, and have a great weekend!

Field Trip

We are gearing up for our field trip to the Ruth Lilly Center tomorrow. We will be eating when we return to school, so please don't forget to send your child a sack lunch. Thanks!

We are having a great week in first grade! In math, students have been practicing and improving their addition skills, using various hands-on and paper and pencil activities. In science, we have been talking about healthy choices, which will be culminated with our field trip next Wednesday to the Ruth Lilly Center. And in writing, students have been working on a story about their recent trip to the library.

Just a few reminders:

1. Library books are due on Monday.

2. Don't forget to send $3.00 by Monday with your child for the field trip cost.

3. As the weather is changing, make sure your child is dressed appropriately to go outside for recess.

4. Daily snacks are encouraged for your child.

Thank you all for being so supportive during this transitional period. I really appreciate it!
