Blue book bags will come home every Thursday.  They should be returned the following Tuesday so that the bags can be rotated to another student.  If not, you will see a reminder in your child’s binder and please send it back the next day. Please enjoy reading these books with your family, or just have your student look at the pictures, identify letters, and picture-read to you.  You could keep the bag in the car for your child to read while riding, or even by their bed so they can read them at night.  I hope this is exciting for them!

Suffolk Reader Program

This Thursday we will begin our Suffolk Readers program where we will be sending home a blue bag with books WEEKLY. 

You must return the bag of books on every TUESDAY.  We will send them home each Thursday. 

Please take the blue bag out of your child’s bookbag throughout the week because it does become heavy for them to carry. 

When you are not using the books, keep them in the bag to help from losing individual books.

Please enjoy reading these books with your family, or just have your student look at the pictures, identify letters, and picture-read to you.  You could keep the bag in the car for your child to read while riding, or even by their bed so they can read them at night.  I hope this is exciting for them!

Mrs. Shahrairi’s Farewell

We would like to invite you to our classroom this Thursday afternoon (1/9) around 3:00 for a special good-bye to a special teacher.  Her last day is this Friday.  We are going to have a class ice-cream party and give Mrs. Shahrairi a few gifts from us.  I am thinking of “SweetFrog” style party since all the kids love SweetFrog with various toppings for the kids to choose and enjoy on their ice cream.  If you are able to donate something for our party, please “reply to all” with what you would like to contribute:  You can send/bring them in anytime and we can refrigerate.  ***Please make sure your ingredients are free of tree-nuts.***

Vanilla ice cream Sprinkles, extra sprinkles, Shahriari loves sprinkles Gummy bears
Strawberry ice cream Whipped cream Gummy worms
Chocolate ice cream Chocolate syrup Cookies
