We are off to a wonderful start in first grade! We have adjusted to the many changes that come with the transition from Kindergarten to First Grade and Mrs. Sheedy and I are so proud of how hard the students are working. We are focusing on EFFORT in all we do! Always trying and doing our best so we can be proud of our work.
VIRTUE OF THE MONTH
All Saints Day Information
On Thursday, November 1st we will be celebrating All Saints Day as a school! The students will pick a saint to dress up as and create a poster about their saint. We will also have a special party that afternoon.
First Graders must pick their saint by Friday, October 19th! (This will give them ample time to prepare their poster) Please turn in a note or send me an email informing me of what saint your child will be! No more than 3 students can be a particular saint so it is first come first dress. Their saint poster is due NO LATER THAN FRIDAY OCTOBER 26th. This will count as a Religion grade.
- Children must dress in their costume BEFORE they arrive at school in the morning.
- Their saint costume must be OVER their PE uniform.
- Please send in a bag LABELED with their name so they can put their saint costume into it in the afternoon.
- They must prepare a poster to share with the class on their saint due NO LATER THAN FRIDAY OCTOBER 26th.
PLEASE REMEMBER YOUR CHILD MUST BRING THEIR SCHOOL SWEATER EVERY FRIDAY FOR MASS!
Important Reminders for the school year:
Please make sure your child has a HEALTHY snack packed for school.
Please make sure your child has their sweater every Friday for Mass.
Anticipated Absence: When an absence is anticipated, the parent must submit a written note to the classroom teacher with an explanation and dates of absence. This note is forwarded to the Principal. No assignments will be given to the students prior to their planned absence. The student is responsible to request make up work upon return. The student is required to have completed all missed assignments and tests within three days of return for an extended absence unless otherwise specified by the classroom teacher. The classroom teacher, in consultation with the Principal, may adjust this requirement if extenuating circumstances warrant this. Parents are strongly urged to plan family trips and vacation during school holidays and summer vacation. Please consult the school calendar to determine these days. The importance or regular attendance and punctuality is reflected in academic achievement.
