The 1st grade class had 96% attendance during Report Card Conferences. If you have not had a meeting with me in regard to your child's report card, please set up an appointment with me as soon as possible. During report card conferences, I also passed back a yellow portfolio folder with your child's graded work. Thank you to those who have returned them today emptied and signed. If you have no done so, please send the folder back by tomorrow so new graded work can be placed inside of it and returned home. As a reminder, the yellow portfolio folder will be sent home every Thursday. Please take the weekend to review the graded work, sign the turquoise folder that is stapled inside the folder, and return the folder to school with your child on Monday.
Lyrics were sent home for the upcoming Winter music performance. The two songs that the 1st grade class will be singing is "Roar" by Katy Perry and "Light the Candle." Mr. Coulter asks that you practice these lyrics with your child at home in preparation to the performance. A letter with details on how the students will be graded in music was also sent home today. If you have any questions, please email Mr. Coulter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks and have a wonderful Thanksgiving break :).
