What a great treat at the end of April, FIELD DAY! I sure hope your students came home as tired as I did. We had a great time playing field events, picnic eating and cooling off with snow cones. If you didn't make it up, be sure to ask your students about the scooter races and the traditional kick ball game. Sad to say, for the first time teachers lost - even after we tried a little creative base running. It was a great day - and so nice to be while it was still a little cool!

Tuesday was Tax Day all over America, even in 1st Grade! The day started with a class discussion about taxes, who pays , what is it for, and why is it important. Students had to pay the tax office. Their tax money was due after lunch. It was a great way to show students some civic responsibility.
Be sure to ask your student how much money they have earned.
Enjoy your long weekend. As for my family, we will rest and celebrate with family!
