Today's Moon

February Homework for Science

Greetings Families!
      We have been studying about our changing night sky. Most of our studies have been focused on the moon. For the month of February, I am asking that children observe the moon. Of course, not every night is necessary or possible. Choose 18 days to look up at the night sky, around bedtime maybe, and check out the moon. Then go to your recording papers and sketch what the moon looks like that night, write the date and time. If it is cloudy or stormy you should skip that night or check our school’s web page under  first ( where the current moon is displayed. If you have any questions, please ask. This packet is due February 28th.
                                                                                            Thank you, 

                                                                                            Mrs. I. & Mrs. H.

October Parent Letter

Dear Parents/Guardians,
         Hello! The weather and temperature is certainly ever changing these days! We wanted to write and remind you to please make sure your children are coming prepared to be outdoors for recess every day.
          We will be enjoying our Halloween parade and party on Monday, October 31, 2016. The parade starts at 1:30 p.m. on the George Street side of the school and ends at the entrance on School Street Extension. Please send children's costumes in a plastic bag with them that morning. Parents are welcome to come in at 1:00 p.m. to help children get dressed. Also, please join us for the party after the parade is over!
            We wanted to get you prepared for some up-coming events in November:
1. Check out our first grade blog on our class page! We just started it and hope that you will enjoy our news!
2. If you need to reach us with a question, try: or but please note that we do not always get a chance to check our e-mail during the day.
3. Math- We are learning to compose and decompose two dimensional shapes. We have reviewed shape names. Students should continue to practice skip counting by 1s, 2s, 5s, 10s and backwards.
4. In science we are studying about animals, their structures and functions. We will study plants next.
5. Read, read, read! We are always excited to hear the progress students are making in reading! We are so grateful that many parents are working hard at supporting the 10 minutes of reading each night.
6. Our Annual Thanksgiving Dinner is approaching! Save the date of November 17th, Thursday, for a few songs and poems and then our Thanksgiving Potluck Dinner at 5:30 p.m. in our cafeteria. We will send more details shortly.

Thank you for all you do to make your first grader successful!     Mrs. Hearne and Mrs. I.

Our First Field Trip!

First graders enjoyed a trip to Green Mountain Orchards in Putney, Vermont.  All first graders enjoyed picking out a pumpkin and enjoying a snack of cider donuts and cider! Once we were back at school, students enjoyed activities with their pumpkins and finally painting them before sending them home.

                        Thank you to all our chaperones!
