Dear First Grade Families,
EARLY DISMISSAL ON 5/29/19: School is being dismissed at 12:40pm. Please make sure to update your calendar. Just an FYI, dismissal on next Wednesday will likely have very traffic heavy. All the district teachers and staff will be coming to Edna for a luncheon at 1:00, while all of the families will be picking up their children at 12:40. Please plan accordingly.
CARLINE DUTY: Room 7 is in charge of Carline Duty beginning on Monday May 20th-June 7th. You get props for this special job including a snazzy yellow vest and handheld stop sign. We need at least 2 parents per shift. It's short and sweet - afternoons only! From 2:55-3:15 every day except Wednesday, which is 1:50-2:10.We so appreciate your assistance in volunteering for this responsibility! Here is the link: Car Line Duty
OPEN HOUSE: Please mark your calendars, Open House is Thursday, June 6 from 6-7pm. Though it is hard to believe the wrap up for school is upon us, we only have 15 days of school left. I have so thoroughly enjoyed working with and supporting your children on their first grade journey. And I am so grateful to each of you for your support both in and outside the classroom. Your kids have accomplished so many things this year and have all grown academically, physically, emotionally, and socially. We have become such a tight knit group of learners that we want to make sure to celebrate and honor this special year. The kids are working hard on many special projects, which they are so excited to share with you. Please plan to come in and check out all the incredible work your First Grader has done this year! Siblings and extended family are welcome. Your first grader will be your tour guide!
Order Next Year’s School Supplies NOW! Edna’s partnership with 1st Day School Supplies allows you to order the exact supplies requested by your child’s teachers for next year and have them shipped directly to Edna with your child’s name on it before the first day of school. Teachers love it, parents love it, prices are competitive and a portion of proceeds goes directly back to Edna PTA. All you need to do is go to: www.1stDaySchoolSupplies.com and choose your child’s grade for next year, checkout, and get it checked off of your to-do list now! I just ordered for my own children, Petra and Santiago, for next year and it feels so good to check it off your list! It’s that easy!
END OF THE YEAR PARTY: This has been such a wonderful year and we would love to end it with a special celebration. We will be having an “All First Grade Bowling Party” at Country Club Bowl in San Rafael on Wednesday, June 12th. We will be leaving school at 10:30am and will be returning by 12:30pm. The children will get the chance to bowl and celebrate what a great year it has been! Please see the permission slip in your child’s Wednesday take home folder.
CALLING ALL LIBRARY AND CLASSROOM BOOKS: All library and classroom books need to be back to school no later than Monday, June 3rd. We will have our last library class on Monday, June 3. Please look through your bookshelves, cars, cabinets, under beds... and send in any books that you find! Thank you in advance!
