Dear Parents,

It was wonderful to see so many of you here at Open House last night.  Our room had one of the highest percentages of attendees!  I know the kids were excited to show you their room and all the fun things in it…like the fish and the cockroaches. It’s funny what they think are the important things.  I do hope you were able to see some of the other things they have been working on as well.  I had a chance to speak personally with many of you, which I truly enjoyed.  If I didn’t get time to touch base with you specifically, I apologize.  It was quite busy in here!  Please let me know if there is something you’d like to speak with me about. 

The Reading Baggies have been quite successful so far.  Most of the children have been completing the work that is in them and have been remembering to return them daily.  I realize that the expectations of first grade differ greatly from what you (and the children) were used to in Kindergarten but it seems that most everyone is getting the hang of how things are done “on this side of the hall.”  Please remember that whatever is in the Baggie MUST be returned the following day.  It is their homework.  All the materials in the Baggie must be returned in the baggie and not in the homework folder. 

Grandparents’ Day is Wednesday.  It begins at 10:30.  Classes will be in regular session until that time.  Please do not arrive before then.

I will be out of school on Monday and Tuesday due to a death in my family.  There will probably not be Reading Baggies those evenings.  I also will not get any correspondences from you until I return on Wednesday.  If it is very important make sure it is not sealed with my name on it, as my assistant will not open it if it is.  Bus notes, etc should just be put in the Take Home folder so that a sub will see them easily.

October book orders were sent home.  I sent one that is for 2-3 grades for those students who desire higher level reading as well. Please send orders by Tuesday, October 10, 2017 or order on line with our code: H973W

Have a great weekend,

Andi Cammer
