First Grade – Holbert

December Newsletter

Believe it or not, December is here! What a wonderful few months of school we’ve had so far. the students are growing so much and making such wonderful progress. Although our days in school this month are limited we will be very busy! :smile:

Friendly Reminder
School hours are 8:20-3:30pm. Students should be dropped off between 8:00 and 8:15am. It is critical that your child be in school every day, on time, unless they are ill. During pick up please be here before 3:30pm, pull all the way ahead to the sound end of the driveway and stay in your vehicle. Most days we will be outside with students by 3:20pm to begin dismissal.

Weather Related School Closings
Winter weather will be here before you know it. Please send your child dressed appropriately. We will go outside for recess unless the weather is extreme. Augusta Academy’s weather cancellation information will be posted on television on WWMT Newschannel 3 and on our school Facebook page.

Holiday Program
We will be celebrating the winter and holiday season with a day of fun on Thursday, December 21st. If you would like to send in bottled water, pretzels, cheese, crackers, vegetables, fruits, popcorn, or other healthy snacks for our students to enjoy as an afternoon snack, you are welcome to do so. A note for sign up for snacks will be sent home this month. We will also be enjoying some activities and games, beginning around 1:30pm.

At 2:30pm we hope you will come watch us perform some holiday songs and a poem in the gym. Everyone is welcome (parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, etc.) Please look for more information on this concert in the next few weeks.

Please check your child’s folder every night and return it to school the follow day. Folders will include notes from school, homework, and your child’s work.

Please let me know if you have any questions!
