1st Grade News + Updates Week of October 9-12th

Hello Parents!

Welcome to our beautiful new website. I’m excited to keep you updated here all through this new school year. A big thank you to our Room Parents who help me get news out to you every week.

Updates 10/9- 10/12

  • Friday is a minimum day. Please pick up your child at 12:00 pm for carpool, or be ready for them to go to After Care. Please send your child with a snack!

  • Please send in your child’s Field Trip Money $9, to Mrs. Settles asap. Our field trip to Casa de Fruta on 10/29 is coming up quick! Please have your money in by 10/25 at the latest.

  • Your child is learning about the fun world of mystery in reading this week. We are reading the book The Eleventh Hour and your child is learning how to problem solve using observation, clues, and codes. I’m sure you’ll hear all about it!


This week we are covering basic subtraction strategies in math. We are focusing on characters, and how your child relates to them with their feelings for reading.

I’ve added extra math worksheets to the packet this week. They are not required. Let me know if you have any thoughts about this :-)

Have a wonderful week!

-Mrs. Settles
