Dear Kindergarten and First Grade Families,


          First grade started a new reading series called Creepy Crawlies.  They will begin bringing home the following books:  Try, Try Again, All in Fun, and Grasshopper and Ant.  This week they learned to read The Itsy Bitsy Spider and they completed a variety of activities. 

          The Kindergarteners learned the nursery rhyme The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe and they learned words with the following beginning digraphs: ph, ch, th, wh, sh, and blends cr, br, fr, gr, tr.

          Thank-you to all of you who donated food to the food pantry!  We have a few hefty bags full of stuff.  First graders will be in charge of donations in a few months.

        Our elementary is performing in a folk and partner dance recital with Mrs. Eichberger.  The program will take place in the gym at 2:20.  Our class needs to wear jeans and a white t-shirt.  If you are available at this time please stop by and see them. 

       There were about 6 students who were unable to check out books at the Onekama Public Library on Tuesday.  The books were renewed, but please be sure to return them as soon a possible so that your child is able to get a book this month.

        Have a wonderful weekend!  Stay warm!
