From Mrs. Hicks' desk…
Thank you to everyone who has submitted the permission slip and money for Tate Farms this Friday. If you have not sent this in for your child, please let me know so that I can make arrangements for your child to spend the day in a first grade classroom.

Star StudentI will begin recognizing a Star Student each week using our number order. We will begin this activity once we return from Fall Break. I will send home a Star Student paper (it is rather large!) on a Friday for you and your child to complete at home. On Friday of the following week, your child may present his paper to the class. You may include photos, drawings, etc. with the paper. Your child may also bring one Show and Tell item from home to show the class. This is meant to provide each child with an opportunity to speak in front of the class and tell something about him/herself that we may not know. It is always fun to hear what they enjoy sharing with us!
All written homework is due on Friday.
1. Practice reading Sight Words.
2. Read Family Times magazine. (This will be sent home on Wednesday).
4. Complete 4 Day Homework Page.
5. Complete Phone Number Page.
