Unit Celebration and 1,000 points on Class Dojo

Students have earned more than 1,000 points on Class Dojo within 15 days of school! To celebrate how peaceful our classroom environment has been, we are going to celebrate in class tomorrow.  Students wanted to wear: blue or green clothes (peaceful colors) or pajamas to school. They also wanted to bring in food (popcorn, popscicles, etc.)  This is optional but should be fun! We published our cool down book and will be sharing with classes tomorrow. 
Students are taking action to prepare for our Monday all school assembly at the flag salute to show ways in which they think can help our community at school be a more peaceful environment.  They will be sharing at 8:10am on the blacktop. 
Go First Graders!!!
