2016- 2017 Welcome to First Grade!



First grade news….

Thanks so much for all the wonderful gifts you gave to me this week!  I am eternally grateful for your generosity!  It has been a great honor to teach your child this year!!

I’ve been asked when our last field trip is going to be……May 19th to Grant’s Farm.


Be sure to check out the Field Trip Pictures on the header of this page!


May Happenings

1st…..I’m going to start putting letter grades on their graded work, like second grade does.

5th….last time this year that I read the reading test to the children.  They are super readers!

17th…first grade has chapel….They will sing 2 songs and do some leading of the service.  Their parts will be in a group talking together.  You are always welcome to join us.




May 19th….end of year field trip to Grant’s Farm.  We will leave Zion at 9:00 a.m., and return to school around 3:00 p.m.  We are taking a bus.  Parents are always welcome to ride with us.  If you choose to drive, I would still like your child to ride on the bus with the rest of his/her class.  Parents who drive are responsible for their own parking fees.  Watch for the permission slip this week in your child’s blue folder.

24th….last day of school…dismissal at 10:00 a.m.










Be sure to check Zion’s Facebook page!

Now that the weather is getting warmer, your child may bring a water bottle to school.  I ask two favors from you. 1).  Water only in the bottle.  2).  Please make sure the lid can be put on securely.  We knock over out bottles quite frequently.



Have you checked out our art display in the hallway?  First graders are quite the artists!!
