Book List

Hello first graders and families! I ran across this list of good chapter books and I thought I would pass it along.

Also, my latest donors choose project was fully funded! I am in shock! Thank you to all who donated or consider donating. I know the future first graders will love the new bean bag chairs.

I hope everyone is having a safe and fun summer.

I can’t believe today is the last day of school. Thank you for sharing your child with me this year.  We have come a long way since the first day.  I am so proud of each and every one of them.  Please keep in touch! Have a safe and happy summer! 🙂

Today is Fun Run day!  We run from 12:55-1:45.  We also earned hat day today.  Your first grader can wear a hat all day to celebrate our donations we earned.
