5/3: SCHOLASTIC BOOK ORDERS DUE
I am sending scholastic orders in today's homework folder. This is our last one of the year and a great opportunity to stock up for summer reading. We see a lot of kiddos backslide in their reading skills during the summer, so a stack of fresh books can really help prevent this summer slide! Also, Scholastic Orders help us earn points to stock our classroom with new books for next year, too! Remember, you can browse many more titles online than just the ones in the paper fliers. Order online at https://clubs.scholastic.com/home and enter class code R77HW.
5/13: BOTANIC GARDENS FIELD TRIP
Students will arrive at school at normal time. They will need a sack lunch and water bottle. Please be sure you have registered:

5/22: INSECTOPIA AND FIELD DAY
You're Invited to INSECTOPIA!
First Grade INSECTOPIA will be OPEN on
Don't miss this opportunity to witness the latest discoveries of new species of insects made by our local entomologists! (Your Children!) Our entomologists will be there to explain the many interesting details and facts about their discoveries! We would love to have you stop by our classroom to visit our booths. You are welcome to meet the entomologists and insects in other first grade classrooms as well! Join us if you are able. Stay for a little while or browse exhibits for the whole hour! Admission free!
5/24: LAST DAY OF SCHOOL/PICNIC
I can't believe it, but our last day of first grade is right around the corner! To celebrate, we will have a class picnic for lunch. I'm asking that students bring a sack lunch so that we can enjoy some food and fun together outside. Since it is such a busy week with field day/Insectopia, we are planning to keep the picnic as a simple celebration for just the students.
