Hello 1B Families,
You and your wonderful children are among the many things I am thankful for this season! Your patience and care have helped me so very much! God’s great blessings to you all.
Monday, November 19th is our friendship feast. I have contacted and heard back from everyone who offered to send items for this. Thanks for your help!
Tuesday, 8:30 Grades K-4 Thanksgiving Mass Remember to send food items through Tuesday if you can.
Since there is only school Monday and Tuesday, there will be no Friday folder, but your child may bring some things home in the GO folder, so be sure to check it.
This week will be exciting and not just because there are only 2 days!! On Tuesday, Mrs. Sluyter, will be letting the children know what their part will be in our Christmas Play! I’ve never missed this day, and I’m really sad not to be there. The children will bring their parts and words to our songs home over the Thanksgiving break. If you could spend a little time practicing with them, I would be very grateful. PLEASE SEND THESE PAGES BACK TO SCHOOL. All children will need to have their lines memorized by Friday. November 30th EXCEPT the storytellers. They will be reading theirs and it’s just important that they practice, use expression and know all the words. We will be practicing a lot at school and we look forward to seeing you on Friday, December 7th at 11:20! You do not have to worry at all about costumes. I will have one for everyone except the storytellers and I will talk to them next week.
Also, don’t forget our class Mass on Wednesday, November 28th at 8:30. 1B is very busy!!
BOOKS make great Christmas gifts! I usually send my Christmas Book Order out at this time, but since I’m not there, I’m inviting you to go online and order. If there are any books that you’d like me to hold onto at school so they can be a surprise, I am happy to do that for you. Just be sure to let me know! You will need to go to scholastic.com and enter our class code at GW3NQ. You will have access to all of the catalogs, and you can order from any of them. I will try to send a reminder when I return, and I will enter the order on Thursday, December 6th.
Finally, and I’m sorry this is so long, I am asking you all to pray for my niece, Erin. Last Monday she had cardiac arrest and has been in the ICU in a coma ever since. We are praying for a miracle and I know your prayers will help. Erin is just 35 years old and has a 1 year old son.
Thank you so much! God’s great blessing on you all!
I’m so sorry I wasn’t able to get a note to you last week! Here’s the run down for this week, and a few important dates to mark on your calendar.
Happy weekend! I feel like we are so busy everyday in 1B. I love all the progress I’ve seen this first quarter. I can’t believe it’s past already!
At the end of each quarter, we ask each child to read the vocabulary words from the Word List Folder. On Thursday, your child brought home the pages with these words. He/She will be asked to read the words out loud on Monday or Tuesday. Please spend some time practicing over the weekend.
Next week the Word List Folder will NOT be sent home. We will be learning about the author, Mo Willems. Mr. Willems is not only hilarious, but many of his Elephant and Piggie books are about problems that children often face daily. It’s a great way to help them work out problems! You can spend some time at mowillems.com, and pigeonpresents.com with your child. There are some fun activities for them!

Have a fabulous weekend!
My name is Sue Kurtenbach. It's hard for me to believe, but I am in my 35th year of teaching at St. Pius X / St. Leo School. I have been teaching First Grade for about 25 of those years. I love seeing all of the growth that happens during the First Grade year. This school is very near and dear to me! I feel blessed to be a part of the SPSL community!
