Dear Families,                                                                                                                                     June 12th, 2017



Wow, we can hardly believe that this is our last week of first grade!  Just a few more things to learn and your child will be off to second grade.  You may keep your child’s Monday folder this week, as this is our final letter for the school year.  J  Please note: There is NO math homework or reading homework calendar this week!


In your child’s Monday folder you will find the 2nd grade supply list. This will be the last hard copy going home so be sure to keep in it a safe place this summer.  If you happen to need another copy, you can access all supply lists on our school website over the summer.


Also going home today is a Summer Skills Packet to help your child keep his/her skills fresh for 2nd grade!  In addition to this, we hope your family makes it a priority to keep reading for a minimum of 20 minutes daily over the summer to avoid “the summer slide” (we encourage you to keep the attached article handy for great ideas!).  Remember: your child will still have access to Raz-Kids over the summer too: 


            Mrs. Brown’s Teacher Username: mbrown415

            Mrs. Harris’s Teacher Username: mharris136

Your child’s password is his/her Conway School lunch number.


REMINDER: Paper/Fabric Bag Request

We will be cleaning out our table caddies and taking home various things from the classroom tomorrow.  Students will need a large, sturdy paper (or reusable grocery store-type) bag with handles to take their belongings home.  Please send one in tomorrow if you haven’t already. Please put your child’s name on the bag.


We will squeeze in a little bit more reading and writing as time allows . . .


Reader’s/Writer’s Workshop

  • Sight/Vocabulary words: afternoon, carry, parents, bicycle, hours
  • Phonics skills: short /e/ with “ea” (lead, head, read, heavy, etc.) & variant vowel /oo/ (tooth, loose, goose, moon, etc.)
  • Comprehension strategy: We will review comprehension strategies we have learned this year.  
  • Writing focus:  We will review first grade writing skills we have learned throughout the year and also write a letter to incoming first graders!

The LAST DAY of school is Wednesday, June 14th with dismissal at 11:45!  Please be sure to let us know if there is a change in your child’s going-home plans on Wednesday so we can make sure we get your child’s summer off to a safe start.  Either send in a note or email the change to your teacher and office@conway.k12.wa.us.


Thank you for sharing your children with us!  It has been a joy teaching them and watching them grow.

 We wish you all a wonderful summer and best wishes in 2nd grade!  They are ready!


Your 1st Grade Team,

Melissa Brown & Melanie Harris
