1st Grade – Gandy

April Newsletter

Spring Break
We will have a whole week off of school at the beginning of April. We have off Friday, April 3rd and then the whole next week as well. We will resume school on Monday, April 13th. We hope that everyone has a great break and does some fun things. We are also sending home a work packet to do. The kids will not be required to do it, but everyone who turns in a completed packet will earn a prize!

NWEA
We are very much looking forward to seeing how much each student has grown in math and reading this month! When we return from spring break, we will begin NWEA testing again. We are hoping for every student to meet their end of the year goals. We are asking that you make sure they all get a good amount of sleep each night. We will be testing all the way through April and the beginning of May. We will be very happy to let you know their scores when we are finished!

Weather
As the season changes into spring, we are asking you to be mindful of the weather. It does get warm some days, but most mornings start out pretty cold. Please make sure your student still wears a coat or jacket every day to school. We will also make a judgement call on warmer days about the kids being able to take off their coats. If we feel it is not warm enough, then they will need to leave their coats on. We are hoping to see more of those warm days coming up!
