First Grade – Holbert

October Newsletter

I can’t believe we are in October already! We have had an amazing first month of school.

Folders
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.

Halloween Celebration:
We will be having our Halloween party on Tuesday, October 31st. Your child may come to school dressed in their costume. Please no masks face paint, open toe shoes, or weapon-like toys. If you would like to send in a treat for the class, please contact me.

Homework:
I will also be sending home a monthly homework calendar for both Kindergarten and 1st grade. It’s completion is not required but I urge you to spend some time working on the skills/activities provided. Also, I will be sending home spelling for 1st grade every week. Please practice at home. Lastly, please do not forget for about your reading logs! A little reading each night goes a long way!

Field Trip
We will be going to MOO-Ville on October 4th. You will need to provide a booster seat for your child to be safely transported. Thank you!

Conferences
Parent/Teacher Conferences will be during the week of November 6th. Conference information and a time/day request form will be sent home the last week of September. You will receive a note confirming your conference time/day. If you cannot meet make the scheduled time/day, please call me to reschedule. Thank you! I look forward meeting with you all.

Please let me know if you have any questions!
