We made it through the first week of 1st grade. Below are some quick end of the week updates. Thanks and have a great weekend.
1st grade will be taking their NWEA Reading test on Tuesday (9/10/2019) at 8:00am and the NWEA Math test on Thursday (9/12/2019) at 12:15pm. Please make sure that your child is well rested in preparation for the test.
If you would like to volunteer in our classroom by helping out, chaperoning, or attending a 1st grade writing museum (a day where you are invited into our classroom to read students' finished writing products), you will need to sign up as a volunteer through CPS. If you were approved last school year, you MUST renew your application again by accessing it through the CPS website. I recommend that all parents who would like to volunteer/visit the classroom be approved as a Level 1. Though Level 2 volunteers are acceptable, there is more flexibility in what you can be involved in as a Level 1. You can access the CPS volunteer application HERE.
Back to School Forms
Students were sent home with a back to school packet on the first day of school. There is a booklet of forms that need to be completed and turned into the office as soon as possible. These forms need to be updated and completed every year. If you have already submitted your forms, thank you! Students were also sent home with a "parent survey form" yesterday. This form is for me to get to your student a bit better from your perspective. If you haven't done so, please fill it out and return in your child's red homework folder.
