Dear First Grade Families,     January 2018

Welcome back!  I pray that everyone had an enjoyable and restful Christmas.  Thank you to all who helped with our classroom Christmas celebration.  The children had a wonderful time, and I appreciate the effort that went into making it such an exciting day!

Our classroom is full of excited learners this year!  I will be starting our Reading Parent program within the next month.  If you are interested in becoming a reading parent, we must have all of your clearances on file in the office.  I will send information home to those parents who were interested in being a reading parent only if we have your clearances on file.  Thanks.

Please remember to fill out and return the Book-It calendars for each month. I will be accepting December calendars for the rest of this week. January calendars were sent home on Friday, December 22.

In Bible, we will continue our lessons on the life of Moses and also continue to learn the Ten Commandments.

Commandments 4-6 will be due Friday, January 12.

4. Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy.
5. Honor your father and your mother.
6. You shall not murder.

Commandments 7-10 will be due Friday, January 26.

7. You shall not commit adultery.
8. You shall not steal.
9. You shall not give false testimony.
10. You shall not covet.

On Monday, January 15, there will be no school, in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  During the previous week, we will have discussed the reason for remembering Martin Luther King, Jr., and all that he did for our nation.

On January 18, we will have a school-wide Spirit Day.  This month’s Spirit Day is Decades Day.  Have fun!

Please send your child to school dressed appropriately for the winter weather.  This includes a coat that can zipper/button up the front, a hat or hood, and gloves or mittens.  We do sometimes go outside when it is cold.

Important Dates to Remember:

Friday, January 12 – Commandments 4-6 due
Monday, January 15 - No School
Thursday, January 18 - Decades Day
Friday, January 19 - Second Quarter Ends
Friday, January 26 - Commandments 7-10 due

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me by note or email (  Enjoy the winter weather, and stay warm!

In Him,
Jackie McClure
