***Picture Day!! September 12th***

 NEW Homework- I appreciate your patience with homework. I will soon be sending home a homework sheet with 1st graders and Kindergarteners. This sheet will contain all the different skills and lessons learned for the week. I will ask that you go over it every night. There will be a place at the bottom of the page that I will ask that you initial it each night. On Friday, they will hand it into me. This will only be for their reading and the vocabulary they are learning that week. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions!

Memory Work- I will be sending you a list of your child’s memory and the due dates. I also will put it in the newsletter. We work on our memory work every day but please encourage your child to work on it at home as well.
Volunteer and donations- I sure appreciate all your patience as I’m trying to set items and centers up for your children. It takes time and I’m on my way to setting these things up. After I have the centers for the children set, I may contact you for volunteer time or donations. Please do not feel obligated but if you are able to help please do! (wet wipes or baby wipes are always in need if you are able)
Lists- If you need a list of the memory work or are missing something please let me know! I will get it to you as soon as possible!
All About Me- There will be 2 students featured for each month.  I will be sending home an “All About Me” posters on Friday to each of these students and ask they fill these out so they can present them on the following Friday. This gives each student a chance to talk about how wonderful God has made them!

Blessings on your weekend!
