Mrs. Brunson’s Fabulous First Grade
May 2017
Dear Families,

            It is hard to believe that our school year is coming to a close.  This has definitely been the fastest moving year I have ever taught!!  Your children are great!!!  They are very ready for second grade and I am really going to miss them.

            Here are just a few items to get us through the next week.

         1st Grade Program: Monday, May 22nd will be our program.  We are looking forward to performing the musical Friends for you.  It will be held at 2:00 in our school gymnasium.  Students may dress up or wear nice school clothes.  If you would like to take your child home with you following the program, please let me know.  J

         Field Day: Tuesday, May 23rd will be our field day.  It looks like we will have some wonderful weather so perhaps a little sunscreen and a hat might be a good idea.  Much of our day will be spent enjoying activities outside.  If you would like to help with our class, please let me know. 

Last Day: Wednesday, May 24th is our last day of school.  We will dismiss at 1:30.

Backpacks: Many items will be sent home the last week for your child to keep and enjoy.  Please make sure your child has a backpack to carry these items home in. 

         RAZ Kids: Many of you have enjoyed access to reading books provided by RAZ Kids.  We have had to renew our contract and as part of this, the new first grade students will be added to my account.  If you would still like access to RAZ Kids throughout this summer, please let me know and I will place your child’s name back into my account and get you a new username and password.  This will be on a first-come first-serve bases.   I wish I had enough licenses for all of the first graders from this year and for next. 
      Waterford: Attached is a flyer for Summer Reading with the Waterford computer-reading program.  I have resent each of you the link for this program.  Students who work on this will earn “backpack buttons”! 

Thank you again for all your wonderful support this year.  It has truly been fantastic!! I appreciate so much all the time you have spent helping your child at home with their reading books.  What amazing readers we have become!!
