    Hello Fabulous First Grade Families,


    It is so hard to believe that we are already in February!  Time is flying here at school and the students are learning so much every day.  I can see such a big difference in each of my students, and I am so very proud of them all.  

    In our classroom we are focusing on being kind to one another.  We just completed a project where we took the time to write compliments to two of our fellow students.  It was a lot of fun, and everyone truly enjoyed hearing the wonderful things that their peers thought of them.  The classroom community is working very hard to build each other up and put smilies on each other's faces!  


    Just a couple of reminders for the month of February:  I sent the newsletter home in your child's folder today - 2-5-18.  This month we will have an early dismissal for Teacher's Professional Development on February 13th, 2018.  Dismissal will begin at 1:00pm.  February 19 is President's Day.  School will be closed February 19-20, 2018 for President's Day/Winter Break.  First grade will be going on a field trip to Groton Public Library at the end of February.  Please be on the lookout for more information as well as a permission slip that will be coming home next week. 
    Thank you and best wishes!
