Dear Parents,
           In Science class, we have been looking at living things and how they grow.  Tonight, the grade 1 class will work on a Science review worksheet covering living and non-living things.  The directions are fairly simple, so I believe the grade 1 class will have no problem with tonights homework.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Grade 1 Spelling Bee Champ

Dear Parents,

Today, the grade 1 class battled it out to see who was the best speller.  We were down to three students just before lunch, but ran out of time.  After lunch Joaquin, Radha, and Airiko continued to spell their way through each round.  It finally came down to Radha and Airiko.  It seemed neither would make a mistake till the final definition round.  After this Radha was declared the winner.  She will compete for the grade 1 class this Thursday.

We can all make sure to cheer Radha on this Thursday.  She has quite the competition to go against!

Sincerely,

Brian Bates
