1st Grade – Gandy

January Newsletter

Towards the end of January, we will again be taking the NWEA computer test. This will give us a guideline as to how each student is progressing towards his/her spring goal. We will take both the math and reading parts of the test. We are so excited to see how much they have grown so far!

Don’t forget that there will be no school on Monday, January 16th in honor of Martin Luther King Day. Homework that week will come home on Tuesday instead. Enjoy the day with your student, and check out some of the local events honoring the day. When we return to school we will be discussing why we celebrate the holiday in Social Studies.

The weather has been cold and snowy lately. We are outside for recess every day. We will go outside unless it is ten degrees or less. Please make sure your student is dressed for this weather. That includes a warm coat, boots, snow pants, gloves, a hat, and possibly a scarf. Please label their things with initials so they don’t get lost. Your kiddo will very much appreciate things to keep them warm outside!
