Dear Parents,

Welcome back!  We are beginning a new social studies unit, "Three World Religions".  The three religions the students will be focusing on are Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.  As we talked about at Back to School night, we cover only the material on this topic found in  What Your First Grader Needs to Know  by E.D. Hirsch.  


Have a wonderful week!
Mrs. Van der Veer

Reminders for School:

  • Please remember school starts at 8:13 a.m. and ends at 3:20 p.m.
  • Change of clothes-accidents of one kind or another can happen.
  • Water bottles that are easy to open, do not leak, and fit in the K-1 sinks to be easily filled.
  • LABEL-water bottles, lunch boxes, jackets, coats, etc….otherwise “Lost and Found” grows rapidly.
  • We have an afternoon snack time but it is short, so easy, quick, healthy snacks, and no colored drinks.
  • Watch the weather and come to school prepared.
  • Drop-off and Pick-up will get better once everyone understands the flow.
