100th Day Set for 2/13!

Hello Everyone,

We are getting ready for the upcoming “100th Day of School” celebration! Assuming there are no snow days between now and then, it will fall on Wednesday, February 13th. Letters went home today with a request to help your students put together a collection of 100 small items to bring in to show the class. There’s also a request to send in 100 pieces of a particular food item to help make a class trail mix. We have all sorts of fun activities planned in our room for each subject area throughout the day. Parents are invited to join us for the collection share and to read 100th Day books at 2:30 p.m.

I have attached a copy of the letter here for anyone who has misplaced it.

Hello Everyone,

I just want to remind everyone that you can be working on your class Valentine’s Day cards between now and the 14th. A class list went home on Monday. We will pass them out at the end of the day and watch a short movie as a special treat. I have attached a copy of the letter with details here in case you have misplaced it.

“Star of the Week” Starts Soon!

Hello Everyone,

It has been a little while. I hope everyone found their December break relaxing and fun! Now that we are back in our first full week of school in 2019, interesting weather in all, we’re getting ready to start celebrating our “Star of the Week.”

Each child will randomly be selected to be the “Star of the Week” starting the week of January 14th and continuing on until all 18 students have had a turn. You’ll have to help them fill out their “favorite things” sheet. They can bring in a few family pictures, a show and tell item, and a fluffy friend to share with the class. Each person in the class will write them a letter too. These will go in a book along with their favorite things sheet for them to take home as a memento at the end of the week on Friday.

When your child has been picked, you will receive a letter home on a Friday with all of the details. It’s a fun and exciting thing for them to look forward to each week!

Thank You,

Mrs. Sturgis

Library Field Trip

Hello Everyone,

On Friday, October 12th, the first graders took a field trip to the Warren Free Public Library. We walked there with the help of a few chaperones and the sheriff’s department. When we arrived, we heard two stories read by Sara Davis. Then, students were able to browse around and look at books. They also received a free book from the library. Here are a few pictures from that day. I apologize for not posting them sooner.

Thank You,

Mrs. Sturgis

Kevin Hawkes’ Visit

Hello Everyone,

We were very lucky to have the chance to meet with author/illustrator Kevin Hawkes. He is from Gorham, Maine and visited with us at WCS for three days on November 1st, 2nd, and 5th. First graders met with him in the library on Thursday. We saw one of his sketch books, watched him draw a variety of things, saw some original art work, and listened to him read There’s a Dinosaur on the 13th Floor. His visit was funded by our PTF and a grant from the Onion Foundation. Here are a few pictures below.

Thank You,

Mrs. Sturgis
