August 19


We’ve been enjoying the warm summer weather outside at recess!

We have two recesses each day; one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Soon, the temperatures will start to cool off. When this happens, please keep in mind that morning recess tends to be chilly while afternoon recess tends to be warm. Get ready to send your kiddo with layers so they’re comfortable at all of our recesses! Keeping a sweater or ICI hoodie at school is a great way to make sure this happens. Sweaters must be uniform colors and should have your kiddo’s name on the tag…especially because layers tend to get lost quickly in first grade!

All About Me Bags

We got to know our new classmates better as they shared their All About Me Bags this week. After sharing, we made connections and asked each other questions. Ask your kiddos what connections they have with their new classmates!

This was also an awesome opportunity to show off our great listening skills and our patience as we each took turns to speak. We’ve been practicing raising our hands, waiting to be called on, and whole body listening (with our eyes watching, ears listening, bodies calm, and voices off).

Senior Parade

The entire school celebrated the graduating class of 2022 with a parade! First graders made signs for the graduates and cheered them on as they walked through the halls. We were super excited to celebrate them!

The Gingerbread Man

Champions have been working hard with Mrs. Nilo to practice their theatre presentation. Their final presentation of The Gingerbread Man was absolutely amazing! Their hard work and cooperation was impressive…and so very heartwarming. Mrs. Rudd and I gave it two thumbs up.
