Weekly Update 9/9-9/13

Hello, everyone!

Our second week of school was filled with learning new classroom routines, Math and Reading assessments, and BOOT CAMP! First grade boot camp is a fun way to kick off the year, learning about what it takes to be a good learner and thinker, how we can solve problems independently, and use tools to help us learn.  By the end of boot camp, the class of 2031 will be 100% ready to take on 1st grade!

Here are this week’s announcements

*We are going on a field trip!  We will attend Meridian High School’s Annual FFA AgExpo. All first graders in our district attend.  Our scheduled time is Tuesday, September 24th.   We will leave Willow Creek around 11:30 am, and will return approximately at 2:15 pm.  Information and permission slips for our trip will be sent home on Monday.  If you are available, we would love chaperones! 😊

*I have received volunteer forms, and will have a volunteer schedule for the year prepared to send home by next Monday.  I know that classroom volunteering is not an option for everyone, but I do appreciate those that can. Thank you!

*If you have any BoxTops, please send them on in with your child.  Thank you!

*Willow Creek’s Back to School Night has been scheduled  It is on Thursday, September 12th. Unfortunately, my husband and I had already purchased tickets for an event on this evening, so Back to School for our class will be Thursday, September 19th, from 4:30-5:15.  If you aren’t able to make it, no worries! I will post the powerpoint presentation and a video to our blog so you won’t miss out. I’m sorry for the inconvenience.  I am ALWAYS available to answer your questions, though, so email anytime! 😊
