Name the Tiger Contest

On Wednesday we had our Back to School PBIS assembly.  We saw great performances from all the teachers at Timber Trails on how we should and should not act in our school.  At the end of the assembly we had a wonderful surprise and our new school mascot came out to introduce himself!  The only problem is, he doesn't have a name :( 

So we are having a contest to name our tiger this week.  Each class was able to vote on a name for the tiger. We have put each classes choice on a container and will have them out before school and during lunch every day.  Students are invited to vote for their favorite name by placing change in the container of the name they like. At the end of the week, we will count up all the jars and the name with the most money will be our tiger's name. :) Our class has voted and has chosen Timber as their name for our tiger.  Hopefully we will raise enough money in our jar to win!!!! Jars will also be out on Curriculum Night so you can see all the names available and vote for your favorite.

Back to school Picnic

Join us for our PTO's Back to School Picnic Wednesday, August 19th from 6:30-8:00!  There will be food, face painting, an obstacle course and a big slide.  Bring your chairs and blankets to have a picnic.  

This is a great way to meet other families in our classroom as well as have a fun filled evening with the family.  My family and I will be there for most of the picnic (we have to leave at 7:15 to get my little ones ready for bed) and I am so excited to see all my new and old students. I hope you can make it!

Welcome to 1st Grade

Welcome to our classroom!  I am very excited to be starting my 12th year teaching and my 6th year at Timber Trails.  I will be using this blog as a way of updating families of our activities in class as well as communicating any important information to you.  I would like to post pictures from our class but will not do so until everyone has signed our classroom Blog Permission Slip (going home the first couple days of school). If you have any questions please email me at or comment on this post.

I am looking forward to a great year with you and your children!
