Dear First Grade Families,
Happy Thursday! Thank you to everyone who donated items for our social studies project next week! We are still in need of newspaper, so if you have one that you are done reading we would love to have it! You can have your child give it to their homeroom teacher.
PTO Spring Mixer
We hope to see many of you on Friday, March 9th at the Colorado Golf Club here in Parker for a spring mixer with a silent auction held by our fabulous PTO. You can bid on teacher time (we’ll each be taking two lucky first graders bowling on Saturday, April 14th) and piggie banks that we each hand-painted. Come check out and big on Mrs. Brossard’s Pokemon piggie bank, Ms. Friesen’s Colorado piggie bank, Ms. Lehti’s Tigger piggie bank, and Mrs. Meara’s Harry Potter piggie bank! You can buy tickets here. We can’t wait to see you there!!
Aquarium Field Trip
Our first field trip is quickly approaching! We will be going to the Aquarium on Friday, March 16th, for our Marine Biology STEM unit. If you have not already done so, please sign your child up on the school store. This field trip is free and a lunch will be provided at the Aquarium.
Parents Night Out!
We had such an overwhelming excitement for Parents Night Out in February that we want to make sure you don’t miss out on the next one (we did have to turn families away)! Our next, and last, Parents Night Out for the year will be on Friday, May 4! It is on the School Store already, so put it on your calendar, and get your child signed up before we run out of space! If you have any questions, feel free to email Ms. Anderson, Ms. Friesen, or Ms. Jones!
This week we started our history unit on Mexico! Students have been learning about the Plaza of Three Cultures, and the three cultures that are represented there (Aztecs, Spanish, and Modern). We have also learned about the Mexican flag, and why there is an eagle in the middle of it. Students created a map and studied the Rio Grande, and tomorrow they will begin a research project on the Yucatan Peninsula. We’ve had a blast learning about Mexico so far; ask them to share something they have learned!
