May 2016

 It is hard to believe that we are now entering our last full month of school!  It doesn’t seem like very long ago when my classroom was full of brand-new first-grade students, ready for an exciting new year.  I have enjoyed watching those eager students grow and learn over the past months. 

Please remember to send in the monthly reading calendar.  A first-grade student should be reading at home at least 3-5 days each week, and should be able to log at least 100-200 hours of reading, depending on level.  Please be sure to write your child's name on his/her reading calendar.

The Race for Education will be held on Friday, May 13.  All students will be participating and families are encouraged to come and cheer for the children as they run (or even run with them!).  There will be food trucks available for lunch. There will also be a silent auction taking place in the gym.  Please remember to send in your items for our Disney Extravaganza  basket.  We are still in need of any items that you are able to send!  There will be a cake and ice cream party for the class with the basket that receives the highest bid!  Thank you to those who have already contributed.

Thursday, May 26 is a Spirit Day for Preschool-8th grade.  This day will be a Switcheroo Day, where the students will dress like the teachers and the teachers will dress like the students!  This could be interesting!

We are celebrating four birthdays in our class this month.

            Ayden C. has a birthday on May 12.
            Kimmy has a birthday on May 15.
            Shane has a birthday on May 19.
            Mrs. Brown is celebrating her birthday on May 18.  Mrs. Brown has been a remarkable blessing in our classroom this year.  If you think of sending her a note, I'm sure she'd appreciate it! :)

Our final Bible memory work for the year is as follows:

Psalm 145:17-18
"The Lord is righteous in all his ways
     and kind in all his works.
The Lord is near to all who call on him,
     to all who call on him in truth."

This will be due on Tuesday, May 10.

Daniel 2:20-21
"Blessed be the name of God forever and ever,
     to whom belong wisdom and might.
He changes times and seasons;
     he removes kings and sets up kings;
he gives wisdom to the wise
     and knowledge to those who have understanding;"

This will be due on Friday, May 20.

Daniel 2:22-23a
he reveals deep and hidden things;
     he knows what is in the darkness,
     and the light dwells with him.
To you, O God of my fathers,
     I give thanks and praise."

This will be due on Tuesday, May 31.

Just a reminder that there will be  no school on Monday, May 30, Memorial Day.
