    Dear Families,

     

    Our class did an awesome job at today's "Fun Run"! A BIG thanks to all our families that participated and helped support BRE, thank you for marking laps on shirts, and passing out water, we greatly appreciate you!!! 

     

    Our assessments next week will be a math test on comparing numbers to 10, questions on the main idea and key details of our pumpkin book, and retesting beginning sounds and syllables.

     

    We were not able to go to the library today due to the Fun Run. Your child can keep the book they checked out last Friday for an extra week.

     

    Be sure to turn in your homework paper (sight word writing practice) each Friday and log in to ClassLink - Savvas/McGraw-Hill for your weekly online assignments. Also, please practice the sight words and flashcards that were given to you at our parent conference. Once your child can read all ten sight words, please send them back to school so that they can earn a sticker, a star on our chart, and take home their next set of site words.

     

    I hope you have a fantastic weekend,

     Mrs. Escobedo

    Today was our first day to check out books at the BRE library. Please be sure to return library books by Friday each week so that your child can check out a new book.

     

    If your child did not check out a book today it is because they were absent and or did not submit the green LIBRARY form that allows students to check out books from our school library.

     

    Most students were assessed this week for their Upper and Lowercase letter recognition and our assessment for next week will be number recognition. 

    Thank you to those of you who turned in your name writing practice homework for the week as it was due today and please be sure to complete and submit the online homework by tomorrow that posted and was assigned as of the past Monday.  

    There will be no school on Monday, September 4th in honor of Labor day.
