Hi Families!


Thank you for all the help with our annual math fact egg hunt!  The kids had a great time using all of their math fact knowledge in a fun way!


It is a busy time of year as we are nearing the completion of this school year!  Please be mindful of notes coming home, emails from your child’s teacher, and dates for special events. 


Each class is collecting money for “All For Books.”  The money collected will help add to each classroom library.  We are collecting donations up to April 26!  Each class has set a goal to strive for. The class at LPS with the most donations will earn a Hurt’s Donut party!


There will be a permission form in your child’s folder on Tuesday (April 18).  It is for our next 2 field trips (May 5 and May 9).  Please complete both forms and return it with your child by April 21st.



A few things…


*There is a new email for reporting absences:  elementaryattendance@lpsfrisco.com

                *please send a doctor’s note upon returning if necessary or if absent 3 or more consecutive days


*Please make sure you are practicing math facts with your child.  You can make flashcards or purchase them.


*Please make sure your child is prepared each day with their lunch and utensils (spoon, fork, napkin, etc.) needed for eating it.  Our lunch is scheduled from  11:20-11:50. 


*Students have a book box in our classroom.  Please send a few books from home for your child to place in their book box.  The book must fit in a shoebox size plastic container.  Thanks! 


*Please remember to post any dismissal changes on School Dismissal Manager prior to 2:30 each day.


*Accidents of all kinds can happen in first grade.  Please send a baggie of extra uniform clothes in your child’s backpack.
