Report Card Note  

Please remember that all 1st grade standards are marked to the end of the year benchmark. For your child to receive a 3, he/she must consistently meet the end of the year benchmark. Also some standards include many skills that take most of the year of the to teach. These standards are often marked with 2's due to the increased number and complexity of the skills. If your child has a 2 on the report card, it means that he/she is making sufficient progress towards the end of the year benchmark.

Our school wide Character Building Fundraiser has been extended to September 15th. We have currently raised around $7,000.  Our school wide goal is $30,000. This is our MAIN fundraiser for the year. The PTA set a goal of $40.00 per child, but any amount donated is appreciated. These funds allow the school to purchase much needed instructional programs. Information regarding company matching came home in folders this past week. Your support is GREATLY appreciated!

If your child donates items for the “Texas Roundup” they can wear a hat to school next Friday, 9/15.

Please sign up for Seesaw  
Dear Parents,

This year we're going to use a  tool called Seesaw. Your child will have his or her own learning journal, and you can get notified when your child adds new items. It's completely private -- only you can see your child's journal outside of class.

Click on https://app.seesaw.me/s/093-598-686 to sign up -- it takes just 30 seconds.

Once you sign up, you can download the Seesaw Family app for iPhone or Android, or access your child's journal on the web.


P.S. If you have more than one child using Seesaw, or want to add a new class/school year for your child, follow the link in this email, then click 'Sign in' tab at the top. You do not need to create a new account.

Thank you!  

It was a pleasure meeting you and your child tonight!  I greatly appreciate your time.  I am looking forward to getting to know your children.  If you did not complete the Google Form prior to or at Open House, please click the following link: Google Form 

Just a few quick reminders for Monday:

  1. We have snack daily at 9:30.  Please pack your child a healthy snack and water.  We eat lunch at 11:40.
  2. Parent Night will be Tuesday, August 15th.  We go over 1st grade curriculum and procedures.  It is a night full of important information.  Please plan for at least one parent to attend.

  4. Upon arrival at school, all students will report to the gym.  First grade teachers will escort the students to class for a few days until they feel confident about coming on their own.
