Room 7 News


Dear Families, 

We are starting our social studies unit on American Symbols. Get ready to hear lots of songs at home! As we learn about each symbol we will be learning a corresponding song for our end of the year play, doing an art project, and completing a chapter for our American Symbols informational book. Our play will be June  17th at 2:00. It is a short play so please arrive on time. 

We will be having Student-Led Conferences next week. You will choose a day to come in with your child and your child will run the conference. He/she will be showing you all the learning that has occurred in first grade this year! This conference is formatted like an open house so there will be other families in the room as well. You do not have to choose a time to come. I only need to know the day. 

Please let me know if you have any questions,

Jill Lang
