No Homework next week due to short week.

Please continue to read each day and practice your math fact fluency and addition and subtraction of numbers up to 20. . 

Late Arrivals

FYI, Lots of our room 10 kids are showing up late to school. Children should have backpacks hung by our room and be ON the playground by the 8:30 bell,
ready to line up for class.
Many are coming down the ramp just arriving as the bell rings and must be marked tardy going forward if they are not on the playground in time. 
Also please speak with your children about the importance of getting down to the playground before school. We have a group that are hanging out in the hallway talking and are not getting down to the playground on time. 
One last thing, please do not allow your children to bring toys and makeup to school. It is a distraction and taking time and focus from learning and classwork. 
Thank you!!

Room 10 Update

It seems like lots of our kiddos have chapped lips these days. Feel free to send some chapstick with them to school. Please DO NOT send makeup or lip gloss to school. It is a distraction and is not necessary nor permitted at school. 
So exciting! The Halloween Parade will be Wednesday October 31st at 1:15 down on the playground. Our snack and drink will follow the parade at the tables down there.
Please remember if your child wears their costume to school, they must be able to sit in it in class and complete their work comfortably. If your child has a costume that they cannot wear comfortably in class, they will have a few minutes before the parade to change by themselves on their own. 
Any masks must provide complete vision for your child's safety. Please keep this in mind when you are planning for any costume to wear at school. 
Thanks again to all of you who made my birthday feel so special! 

Info Updates

Hello All, 
Just a few notes to update all of you on current events. 
Please remember to send your child in their first grade class t-shirt tomorrow along with a lunch and drink in a disposable container for our field trip.
Be at school at 8:15 a.m. in the classroom. Please don't be late!
We will be leaving for the theater shortly after that and I need to do attendance and speak with the kids before we leave.
Our Cornerstone Social Event Fundraiser is this Saturday night at R10 Social House in Redondo Beach. I hope you have all signed up to come have fun and support our school. Time is running out to sign up! Please see Mrs. Wildey's email for the link and more information. A flyer was sent home last Friday with details as well. Hope to see you there!
 The Sketchers Pier to Pier Walk to support our Peninsula Education Foundation is coming up as well. Please join us in the walk for education for PV schools. Sign up online and walk or sign up and be a virtual walker if you have other plans that day. Either way, please join in. 
Don't forget to send in a flashlight for our science activity this week if you haven't already done so. 
I hope to see you all at the in-service tomorrow evening at 6:00 p.m. We will be meeting in the MPR as a grade level rather than in classrooms. 

First Week of First Grade

We had a great first three days and we are off to a great start. Today we had an assembly to review our Cornerstone ABCs. Act safely, be responsible, care for others. Please review these with your child.
We will be starting behavior cards on our desks next week. Please check in with your child to see how they do each day and embrace the positive things they do. I will speak more about it at the in-service.
A reminder that share begins next week and students will be sharing about their summer adventures. Please see the note sent home today.
Friday folders have not been returned to teachers so information came home today just in your child's backpack. Please check for notes and letters.
Please send in a set of headphones for your child in a plastic ziploc bag marked with your child's name to use in the classroom for the computers. They will be returned at the end of the year.
This next Tuesday night at 5 p.m. we will meet in my classroom for our first in-service. Please try to attend as I will be sharing lots of information about our classroom and first grade.
Have a great weekend! It's going to be a great year!

Welcome to First Grade in rm. 10! 2018-2019

I am happy to welcome you to first grade! The first day of school we will meet at the classroom, room 10. School starts at 8:30. Please be sure your child is on time. Please bring their supplies the first day. Items will be collected and most will be shared in the classroom. 
The second day and from then on, we will meet in line down on the playground at the bottom of the ramp at the 8:30 arrival time. Please be sure your child is on time and ready to begin their day. Please arrive before 8:30 to allow your child time to hang their backpack and items on their hook in the first grade hallway and go down to the playground in time for the 8:30 bell. If you are not on the playground at 8:30 at the bell, your child will be marked tardy.
Dismissal is at 2:35. Please meet your child at the curb, in first grade you do NOT pick them up at the classroom, we walk them up. They will meet you at the curb, not at the classroom. 
Prior to the first day of school please send me an email or send a note the first day to let me know if your child goes to sibling watch, the curb/carpool, or to Kid's Corner. If you are not able to pick up your child, please let me know who will be picking them up. Designated people must be on file in the office on your forms. 
We take lunch count in the classroom for the next day. On Monday, I take the count for Tuesday, etc. We do not have a note that goes home. Please help your child to learn and know if they are buying lunch that day and the following day. It is a work in progress the first few weeks. If you are not certain your child can remember, you can send me a note until they get the hang of things. They are pretty good at it. 
Homework and other info will be posted here on Edlio regularly.

Before and After school drop off and pick up

A quick reminder that students should drop off their backpacks and supplies and go to the playground in the morning before school.
At 8:30, students should line up on the playground with the class.
TP#1 shift is at curbside by the MPR in spot#2 until 8:30.
TP#2 starts at 8:30 helping students line up on the playground and walk to  the classroom after the bell.
No TP's are working in the classrooms before school. We teachers use this as team planning and personal planning time.  Students should only be in the hallways before school to drop off their backpacks before going down to the playground to play where they can be safely supervised.
First grade pick up and drop off happens at the front of the school.  Please use the convenient drop-off/pick up loop.  If you want to walk your child in, please walk them only as far as the front of the office and say goodbye there.
At pick up, you should wait for your child in your car or at the front of the school.  Please don't wait outside the classroom, as it is disruptive. We are trying to foster independence. Parents congregating in the hallways also makes it difficult for us to get the children to the front where they are to wait for carpool on the benches. Thanks so much for your guidance and cooperation.
I am happy to meet with you to answer your questions. If you would like to make an appointment, please email me and we will set up a time that works for both of us. I feel bad when I am unavailable to answer your questions or have a discussion before school. It's a busy time and some days I am free but some days not.
Thank you!
