Welcome to the First Grade Jungle

November 11, 2016

This week, we wrote letters to veterans to thank them for their service. The children brainstormed lovely ideas and thoughts to be included in the letters.

Veterans Day letters

Election Day!

                           On Tuesday, students participated in a lower school election. Children could vote to have a dress down day, a sports day, or hawaiian day.

We're heading to the beach!

         First grade was recently invited to experience sand sculpting in action! On this field trip, children will have a hands-on opportunity to learn how art and science combine to create sand sculptures.
       On Monday, November 14th, we will depart for Siesta Key Beach at 9:00am. We expect to return to school by 10:30am. Your child should still wear his or her ODA uniform and sneakers. Please apply sunscreen to your child prior to coming to school on Monday.
