April 26, 2013
          First grade has had an exciting week.  Monday was Earth Day.  To celebrate we learned ways that we can reduce, reuse, and recycle to conserve resources.    
Great Websites
Our district has purchased the right for us to use a wonderful website called Moby Max.  There are several subjects and games to play on it.  Here at school we have taken the placement test in math.  The website address is  Your child can access this website at home.  Once you get to the website, there is a button that has sign in.  Your child’s log on name and number is the same one used for taking A/R tests.  Another good website is  We think the students will enjoy these two websites.

Thank you for sending refreshments for our Easter Party.  Although the weather was wet, we still had lots of fun “hunting” eggs and playing games.  We are constantly amazed at the generosity of our first grade parents.
Continue to collect box tops and can tabs.  PTO uses the money from box tops to purchase things we need in our classrooms, and the can tabs are taken to St. Jude’s. 
We are out of Kleenex and glue.  Girls please bring a box of tissues, and boys please bring a glue stick for our classroom. 
Happy April Birthday to our friends!
Baylee – 4th, Noah – 9th, Drew – 16th,  Lexi F. – 29th, Rozalynn 30th,                      and Ms. Bobbi – 30th
