We are Rockstar Writers!

Parent Questionnaire
A parent survey was sent home with your child yesterday. We would appreciate your help in completing the questionnaire regarding your student and their learning at school. We would also appreciate your feedback about this year so far.  If possible, we would like to have all questionnaires returned by Tuesday, November 24th. Thanks for your ongoing support and for your participation!

We have just finished with our personal narratives! First graders have been working extremely hard and have become rockstar writers, revisers, and publishers. Throughout our writing process, we have learned how to add more details, reread to be sure our story makes sense and create an interesting title that grabs the reader’s attention. Ask your child all about their stories and what they have been learning about during writing. Be on the lookout - rough drafts of this unit will be sent home on Monday. There is space for you to write a note to your first grade writers about their piece. Please return it to school in the attached envelope as soon as possible and we will open them at school.

Turkey Trot/Walk-a-thon
Next Wednesday, November 25th, Pine Glen will hold it’s annual Turkey Trot and Walk-a-thon! Weather permitting, first graders will be outside for a good portion of the morning. Please make sure your child has sneakers and also a warm coat, gloves, hats, scarves, etc. for the occasion.

Spirit Day/Food Pantry Donations
Next Wednesday is also Pine Glen Spirit Day! Your child is encouraged to wear Pine Glen attire and/or green. If possible, please have your child bring a canned food item to help support the Burlington Food Pantry.

½ Day Snack
Next Wednesday is a half day. We will be dismissed at 11:30am. Since we will not be having lunch on that day your child may bring in one small snack and drink. Please remember that all students must  bring in ONLY peanut- and tree-nut free products for snack.

Book Fair December 2nd!
First graders have been scheduled to go down to the Pine Glen Book Fair on Wednesday December 2nd. The book fair will also be open for parents on December 3rd during the day. Book Fair flyers have been sent home with more information.
