Holiday Book Exchange

Dear Parents,

I’m excited to announce that our classroom will be holding a book exchange this holiday season!  As you know, reading is so important and what better way to ring in the holiday season than celebrating with a new book? Your child should bring in an age appropriate, gender neutral book (wrapped) to exchange with another student. The exchange will be anonymous so please so do not label your gift to anyone specific. If you need ideas of where to find a book, check out Walmart, JCPenny, a thrift store or even a gently used book from home. If you are exchanging a used book please make sure it is in good condition. Remember, this will be a brand new book to another child!

I am also sending home a Scholastic Book Order which can be used to purchase a book for the exchange. I ask that you send money and the order back to school with your child by DEC. 11 in order for the books to arrive on time for the exchange. Please have your child’s wrapped book brought to school by Wednesday, Decemeber 20. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you need help bringing in a book for the exchange.


Queridos Padres,

Estoy emocionada de anunciar que para estos días festivos tendremos un intercambio de libros en nuestro salon. Como saben, leer es muy importante y qué mejor manera de celebrar esta temporada con un libro! Su hijo(a) deberá traer un libro de edad apropiada, de género neutral (envuelto) para intercambiar con otro estudiante. El intercambio sera anonimo asi que por favor no le ponga etiqueta a su regalo para alguien específico. Si necesita ideas de donde encontrar un libro, puede ir a la Walmart, JCPenney, una tienda de segunda o hasta un libro con poco uso de casa. Si esta intercambiando un libro usado por favor asegúrese que este en buena condición. Recuerde, este será un libro nuevo para otro niño. También estoy agregando una orden de Scholastic Book que puede ser usada para comprar un libro para el intercambio. Pido que regresen el dinero y la orden a la escuela con su niño para el 11 de Diciembre a fin de que los libros lleguen a tiempo para el intercambio. Por favor mande el libro envuelto de su hijo(a) a la escuela para el miércoles, 20 de diciembre. Por favor déjeme saber si tiene cualquier pregunta o si necesita ayuda en traer un libro para el intercambio.


Our Classroom Christmas Party will be on December 21st at 12:30!

October News

Fall has arrived! This means all things apple, leaves, pumpkin, and fun in first grade! This month, first graders will continue to understand how to put letter sounds together to make and read words, build complete sentences, understand text structure, hear lots of stories, practice addition and subtraction math facts, fall more in love with Christ and His Church, and so much more!

Some highlights of this month include Fire Safety Week with a visit from firefighters, our class field trip to Pumpkin Paradise in Sublette, conferences, and our fall party!

This month is a great time to review fire safety as a family at home. It is important to always have a plan in case there ever is an emergency. We will go over this at school, but you can never be too cautious! 

A permission slip has been sent home and will need to be returned to school with a parent/guardian signature along with $6 in order for your student to go on the field trip Friday, October 13th. Each student will also need to bring a sack lunch for the day of the field trip. Parents who have completed Protecting God's Children and welcome to join in on the fun! We will leave after mass and return before the school day ends. This will be a very fun day! 

Keep reading at home with your child, it not only helps with bonding but will increase your child's desire to learn how to read and enjoy it! To help give your child extra motivation we have started the Book It! program. A calendar has been sent home with your child to fill out each night of the month. Please read with your child or have them read for 20 minutes each night. Once completed each night, let your child color in the cat for the day. The calendar will need to be returned to school at the end of the month with a signature and your child can earn a free personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut! 





Your first grader has many exciting things to look forward to as we get the 2017-2018 school year started! As a first year teacher at Sacred Heart Cathedral School, I can't wait to get to know the students and grow in our faith and knowledge together. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns throughout the year. I can be reached through email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
