What a Great Week!

Hello Everyone!

What a super week! We had wonderful weather for our field day and cookout! Today Cali's Mom came in. We made sun prints outside after our nature walk. We collected great items to put on our special paper. We let the paper dry-and with the help of the sun....the magic happened!!! Thank you Kerrin! Yahoo for you!!!

Happy summer to all. I LOVED this year and all of my nearly 2nd graders!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you had a super mom's day. We had fun creating your present!
For the remainder of the school year, I will be assessing and finishing our first grade curriculum. This year has flown. It will be sad to see my students be 2nd graders!!

Your child will be taking a reading and math test on the computer. Also, we will finish our end of unit assessments in our math books. I will be assessing writing pieces too! It is a busy time of year!

Tomorrow is a half day. Dismissal will be at 12:30. Have a nice day!

Hi Everyone!

I am so proud of our little stars! The show was awesome in the afternoon and awesome in the evening!! What a terrific class!!!!

We have been assessing, measuring, reading, adding and subtracting each day.
Just a reminder that students start the school day at 8:45. That is when we all come in.and start our day. Please try to have your child here then. It is a settling and readying time for all.

Lynn Plourde is a children's author who will be visiting Skillin for most of the week. We love her books and videos. She is creative and fun!

We have a half day on Thursday, April 14 and no school April 15. The next week is vacation. I hope you have some special times with your child.

I feel very fortunate to have such a hard working and enthusiastic group!

Mrs. G.
