    CCA 1st Grade Newsletter
    April 19th 2021:

    This week is our state testing week. We will be testing Monday through Thursday with Friday off (Kindergarten and First Grade only). It is VERY important to make sure your student is well rested ( goes to bed early) and well fed (protein rich breakfast and lunches) each day. Please resist the temptation for donuts and candy or desserts for breakfast or snacks during this time. We will be reviewing the results at the Parent Teacher Conferences in three weeks. The sign up sheet for that is by the classroom door. There will be NO making up the state tests so it is necessary to be present and on time. Our Mothers Day celebration is coming up next month as well. We will be practicing a song as a class to perform during the celebration. We would like to make drums out of coffee or cocoa cans with lids or guitars out of large pieces of cardboard. If you can donate any of these supplies to the classroom to help us out that would be much appreciated! All work needs to be turned in by Thursday May 6th to be included in this terms grading. End of term is the 7th.

    We are out of both Tissues and Baby wipes, I would appreciate any donations of those as well!

     If you have any questions feel free to email me at heatherekhoff@gmail.com, text me, or message me using our CCA Facebook page.

    January 11th 2021:
    Congratulations we have made it though a little under half our school year. I will begin to treat our students more and more like future second graders. I will expect your children to read the directions,  complete all the the worksheets, and do their best. 

    If your child is showing any illness symptoms please keep them home. I will do my best to have their Absent Work Packet ready by the end of that day. Please pick it up on that same day so that your child can pace themselves while doing the absent work ( see Absent Work policy at the end of the newsletter).

    ALWAYS send ALL homework or absent packets back to school with your child even if some pages are not done yet. (this allows them to work on it at school) Some pages have a backside we are doing in class the next day.

     All students MUST have ALL 5 THINGS, including a real winter coat, brought to school EVERY day. Please take everything home at the end of the week ,wash them, and bring them back the following school week. All sleds must have your students name on them and be taken home during breaks.

     If you have any questions feel free to email me at heatherekhoff@gmail.com, text me, or message me using our CCA Facebook page.

  • Special Announcement

     

     

    Attention Parents!

    I have sent home two papers that need your attention and response. Please send them back with your student before Friday. No money is needed at this time but a yes or no is necessary. One paper is regarding the Lady Bug production and the other is asking if you want a year book or not, so that we can put the order into the printer. Thank you for your help and consideration with this!

    Have a great day- Ms. E

  • 2020 Week 14 Newsletter

    CCA 1st Grade Newsletter
    January 4th 2020:
     Welcome back from Christmas break! The curriculum has added new concepts which means you may see a fluctuation in the grades reflecting this. Please be extra careful to review all the pages returned to you on Mondays from the previous week. I will accept any pages redone or fixed as long as you write a note on it letting me know you have fixed it. I recommend redoing any grade a c or under but I am leaving that responsibility with you, the parents for the rest of this year. Because this is flu and cold season many times I am the only adult in the classroom and as such I can check our students work as fast as I can and still not get to everyone. Many times I am needed to reteach, one on one, a particular part. What this means is that I must expect your children to read the directions, do their best and ask for help whenever they really need it. Because they are First Graders and still developing, this does not always happen. You as parents can help fill in the gap by double checking any work sent home, helping reteach or read the instructions for a section that they struggled with, and send it back to me. Together we can help them become more self reliant and grow.

    Again, let me know as soon as possible if/ when your student will be absent and for how long. I will do my best to have their Absent Work Packet ready by the end of that day. Please pick it up on that same day so that your child can pace themselves while doing the absent work ( see Absent Work policy at the end of the newsletter).

     All students MUST have ALL 5 THINGS, including a real winter coat, brought to school EVERY day. Please take everything home at the end of the week ,wash them, and bring them back the following school week. All sleds must have your students name on them and be taken home during breaks.
