Thursday, June 22nd is the LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!  Pizza lunch will be served.  Pizza lunch will be provided by the PTO on the LAST DAY.  Please send your child to school with a drink and snack.  If your child does not like pizza, please pack them a lunch for the last day. 
June 21st is also a 12:45 dismissal.  Either send your child to school with a lunch or you can choose to purchase a lunch through the PTO.  No school lunch program that day.  Be on the lookout for a notice to fill out in the Friday Folder.
Please keep in mind that June 21st and 22nd are 12:45 dismissals.  There is aftercare.

**Please have your child bring in a SHOPPING BAG the last 2 days   of school to help carry things home.  (June 21st and 22nd)

The last math unit is about 2-digit addition and subtraction and also a review of what we have covered this year in first grade.  We will be going over place value, geometry, measurement, basic facts, etc. for the last few weeks. 

In science, we have been studying the life cycles of animals and the kids are really excited about it.   One of the biggest surprises was that we were able to watch caterpillars change into beautiful butterflies right in our own classrooms and learn firsthand about these amazing creatures.  Ask your kids all about it!!

Your child will bring home his/her report card in  a large brown envelope on the last day of school.  You will also find summer packets in there that should be worked on over the summer to help them stay ready for second grade!  As always, be sure to have your child keep reading over the summer!

If you have any questions or concerns during the last few weeks of school, please don’t hesitate to contact us. 

This has been a most rewarding and exciting school year!  We thank all of you for your support and assistance throughout the year.  The children have truly taken giant strides; academically, socially, emotionally, and physically.  We are so pleased with their success, and we know you are too.  Congratulations to all of you!  Wishing you the best…next year…and always!! Have a safe and fun summer! 

Fondly,

Mrs. Jubelt
