Just a reminder that the UMS Open House is TOMORROW (Thursday, October 3rd from 6:30-7:30 p.m.). Please plan to attend if at all possible. Your child will show you around the room and tell you about what's been happening in first grade so far! Please also plan to visit the unified arts teachers--Mrs. Flanagan, Mrs. Derry, Ms. Mutz, and Mr. Traquair!
Gum in School?!
Have you heard about chewing gum during our SWR check-ups? If not, you will soon! This is a fun Friday tradition in first grade, and I really do think it helps children focus during their spelling quizzes. If you think of it when you're at the store, could you pick up an extra package or two of sugar-free gum? We go through 22 pieces a week, so we need to start building our supply. I will provide gum for this week's first spelling check-up. :-)
