Week 3 August 18 -22, 2014

Dear Parents,

We hope everyone had a great weekend!!!  We had a great time last week learning and discovering new things in first grade.

This Monday, August 18th, first grade will be having a birthday celebration at lunchtime. Pizza, drinks, and cake will be provided for the students.



 If you have not sent in the money for the class fee, please do so as soon as possible. 150$ or 3,250.00 Lempira



If your child has not done so already, I ask that each child bring a water bottle, book bag, and lunch box to school daily. Each item should have the child´s name clearly labeled on it.

Under the heading Pages (to the right of our blog) you will find all the links to the different blogs. Please refer to them weekly.

Last, we would like to remind all the parents how important it is to read the blog every Monday. The blog is where we will communicate all the important events, weekly teaching and learning objectives and daily homework.
