Dear Grade 1 Families,

I hope you have been out enjoying the sunshine today. It’s hard to believe, but we only have 3 weeks left of school. As the end of the year approaches, there are many events and important dates to look out for, so please see the important dates at the bottom of this page. This week we will be reviewing the special sounds and sight words we have learned this year. We will also be learning about the Yukon, creating and interpreting information from tally charts, and the 13-addition family.

Special Reading Project: This week, students are asked to bring in one short story that they would like to read to the class. (please make sure your name is in the book so there are no mix-ups.

Spelling Test: This week will be our last spelling test! Thank you for all the support you have given your children throughout the year with their spelling work.

Gym (Mrs. MacDougal): On June 1st, we will be performing our dance routine during chapel. We are very excited to show the elementary what we have been working on. Thank you for supporting our efforts by practicing at home. Please continue to do so as we near our performance date. The song we are performing to is called Here With Me by Gateway Kids. On the day of our performance students should wear either a blue, yellow, or white t-shirt. Also, students should wear black pants. They may be black leggings, jeans, or dress pants. Girls should come to school with their hair tied back in a ponytail or braid. You may view a recording of the performance on our Grace Christian School Facebook page.

Friday, June 10: Grade 12 Graduation
