Dear Parents & Families,

Our “Family” writing unit has started. We are currently writing paragraphs about our family and then we will be writing an autobiography essay.  Through this unit they will also create a finger puppets for each of their family members and give a speech to our class.

On Thursday, February 7th our class will go on a guided field trip to the State Capitol. We plan to leave at 8:30am and return at 1:30pm. Students will need to bring a sack lunch or let their teachers know that they need one ordered from the school cafeteria by January 31st. There cost for this field trip, is $5.00 for the bus. It is important that your child wear closed toed, comfortable walking shoes, and dress in layers as part of the field trip will be outside. If you are joining us as a chaperone, please plan on driving and or carpooling with other parents. Unfortunately seating is very limited on the bus. Students are more than welcome to bring along books, drawing things, and electronics to entertain themselves on the bus ride. Please remember that all electronics are brought at your own risk. The school and teachers are not responsible for these items. However the buses will be locked at all times while we are not on them. This field trip will be a wonderful opportunity for students to see first-hand where our legislators work. The tour includes the Rotunda, Senate, House Chambers, and the Governor’s Ceremonial Office. This knowledge will help support what we are learn in Social studies and our study of Oregon. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the field trip.

We will not have a “Valentine’s Party”, but we will be doing several fun activities in class. If students would like to bring valentines for their classmates they can. We just ask that you have your child make them for everyone in our class. Students will be given time to pass them out in class.
