January 2019

Dear First Grade Families,                                              

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!

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 21.

In Bible, we will continue our lessons on the life of Moses, starting with a review of the Ten Commandments.
Our next Bible memory work will be Joshua 24:15. This will be sent home on Tuesday, January 8, and will be due on Friday, January 18.

          "Choose this day whom ye will serve...But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."

On Monday, January 21, there will be no school, in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. 
On January 24, we will have a school-wide Spirit Day.  This month’s Spirit Day is Clash Day or Hawaiian Shirt Day.  Have fun!

We are celebrating two birthdays in our class this month!
                   Nate has a birthday on January 12.
                   Canaan has a birthday on January 20.
                             Happy birthday, Friends!

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 18 – Joshua 24:15 due
Friday, January 18 - Second Quarter Ends

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
