Hello and welcome back from Winter Break. I hope everyone spent their 2 weeks off enjoying time with family and friends. We got right back to work last week and were ready to hit the ground running. It will be a busy quarter with lots of fun stuff going on. Please read this post to find out about important upcoming events/changes being made to start off 2017!
Study Hall: As a first grade teaching team we have decided to start weekly "Study Hall" sessions. As a whole we have noticed the same students not using their time wisely or not pushing themselves to complete their work. In an effort to prepare students for the increased work load in second grade we are having students with incomplete work go to Study Hall on Fridays instead of extra recess. Our hope is that students buckle down during work time so we have either very few students in study hall or can eventually eliminate Study Hall all together.
Upcoming Field Trip: We are anticipating a field trip in April. In order to chaperone, you have to fill out a parent volunteer form and get fingerprinted at the Tempe District Office. Fingerprinting is scheduled on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 8:30 am and 10:00am and is by appointment only at no cost to you. Please call 480-730-7132 to schedule an appointment. If you were fingerprinted last year, you do not have to refingerprint. However, you have to fill out a new volunteer form each year and have it notarized. Please note this is a 60 day process, so you must get the necessary paperwork done in order to chaperone a field trip.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
