Hi Parents,
 
    Tomball ISD has a trial program called www.myon.com that will continue through the summer.  This is an interactive online reading program that gives your child thousands of books to read!  The students logged in last week and took an interest inventory and reading assessment.  The program was able to help them find  their favorite books on their independent reading level. They are also able to b browse around and look in other categories of books and take a few quizzes after they finished reading or listening to a story.  The kids are super excited about this program and really enjoyed their time with this.  You may use this at home using wifi or they can download books and read them using non-wifi devices.  I encouraged the kids to use this at home and discover some more of the features of the program.

This should be a great way to keep your child reading through the summer!  
Dear Parents,
 
Tuesday and Wednesday of this week students are allowed to bring sleeping bags, blankets, beach towels, pillows, stuffed animals, flashlights and their favorite books for our read-in.
 
Also,  our yearbook signing is tomorrow at 1:30.  The students can bring their yearbooks to get them signed by the other first grade students in the pod area. Yearbooks are still for sale in the front office if you would like to purchase one.
 
Our class has also earned the privilege of eating lunch in our classroom for the next two days!  So, we won't be in the cafeteria during our lunch time.  
 
Our End of the Year Luau Party is Thursday from 11:30 - 12:30 and early release is at 12:50.
 
I want to thank everyone for a wonderful year!  I am so proud of all of my students and how much they have accomplished this year.  I  will miss all my firsties dearly next year.
 
I look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday.
 
Warm Regards,
Sherri Saul

Parents, 

I would love your input as to what you value the most and feel is the most essential part of a comprehensive counseling program.  If you could respond to the survey below, that would be wonderful in helping me tailor the program to meet the needs of our students here at CFES!

Dear Parents, 
 
It's that time of year when we begin our Endangered Animal Research Project.  This research project will be completed in class.  We will be researching an endangered animal as a whole class and learning about the research process. After completing the research process whole group your child will work with a partner or independently to complete the required elements.  The students will select the animal they want to research from a list of endangered animals.  This project is a holistic learning experience that will lay the foundation for future research projects in the upper grades.  
 
I have uploaded the Endangered Animal Research Project pages into a newly created page for this assignment.  I wanted you to see the questions the students need to research and how the project will look when completed. I'm also listing links to websites we are using in class. These websites will be added to their bookmarks on the Chromebooks and the laptops.  I encourage you to discuss the animal with your student, but he/she is expected to do all of the research independently with guidance.  I do not want the students to just copy information verbatim.  They will be taught how to rewrite the information into their own words so they can take ownership of the entire project.  
 
When it is time to construct the habitat for the endangered animal your child selected in class he/she will need to print several different pictures from home, of the endangered animal in various sizes.  I will assist the students in selecting the appropriate picture to include in the pop-up habitat.  The extra pictures can be glued to outside of the folder to make it more visually appealing.
 
This is my favorite project of the year!  You will be amazed at how much your first grader learns about the endangered animal and the research process.  I can't wait for you to see the final product.  It is quite impressive.
 
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
 
Thanks for all your help and understanding,
Sherri Saul

Field Day

Parents,

Your child will participate in field day this week. K-2nd grade will be on Thursday from 9:30-12:30, and 3rd -5th grade will be on Friday from 9:30-12:30. Please make sure that they wear the color that their teacher has given them, and tennis shoes. Field day attire must follow the school dress code. Kindergarten lunch is from 10:30-11:00, 1st grade from 11:00-11:30, and 2nd grade is from 11:30-12:00. Grades 3-5 will eat after the games at 12:30. If you did not order a box lunch for your student, please be sure to send your student with a sack lunch. On Friday the cafeteria will be closed, and will not be serving the regular menu to ANY grades. Only box lunches that were pre ordered, will be served on Friday. Please pack a lunch on Friday as well, if you did not order a box lunch.

Please make sure that your student puts on sunscreen/bug spray before they come to school. Please send them with a water bottle and towel for picnicking as well. We are hoping for beautiful weather, but you never know what could happen. Unless it is storming, we will plan to go on with the day. Thank you for allowing your child to participate. We are looking forward to 2 days full of fun!
