people refuse to believe in God and obey Him. We will be reading
God Sends Quail and Manna and God Helps
His People in the Desert from Exodus 16-17.

measuring and drawing line segments to the nearest inch, counting
nickels and pennies, and ordering events by time.
- In Science we will be exploring Earth's Resources
by asking what can we find on earth (Unit 6, Leson
1). We will be having our
first Science Test on Tuesday, March 26 (Unit
5). If your child would like to
watch the videos for each unit, please follow this
District: Private School; School: St.
Paul Lutheran, Grafton 53024; Username: first initial last name;

your child's "glove compartment" in a safe and convenient place at
home to keep all of the souvenirs during the year.

Good to Know!
- Thank you to Jaime Jacobson who has graciously volunteered to
be our room parent. Please watch SignUp.com and emails for ways you
can assist her throughout the year.
- A good rule of thumb is to keep all of your child's
school work for the entire trimester. Sometimes, a paper gets
home before it gets handed in to me, or occasionally I might
accidentally hand an assignment back that didn't get into the
gradebook. After grades come out on trimester report cards
feel free to recycle them!
- Please make sure to send a healthy snack and water
bottle (either with a sports cap or thermos type,
etc.) to school with your child.
- Special Lunches with Kids: At times during the
school year, parents may wish to have a "special lunch" with
their children. Most notably, this occurs on
birthdays. Parents are welcome to excuse their
children from school and go off campus for lunch. If parents prefer
to have lunch here on campus during lunch periods,
it is policy that traditional bag lunches are used
or hot lunch is ordered. Hot lunch can be ordered
for parents as well. Please do not bring food from local
fast food restaurants or other eating establishments on
campus during lunch periods.

- Please remember to pack a healthy snack for your child
each day. Our little tummies get very hungry by 10:00 and a
healthy snack is a great way to rev up our energy up to lunch
time. Snack this year is an individual snack. You
only need to send snack for your child. Please make sure the
snack you send with your child is a healthy
snack. Birthday snacks, Student-of-the-Week snacks, or
other special snacks for the whole class are always welcome and do
not necessarily have to stay within the healthy snack

with others via email, Facebook, or Twitter.

- Students will bring home 1-2 new books in
their book bag each week. In addition, their book bag
will contain their sight word booklets. Please
have your child read and reread these books several times
throughout the week to increase fluency and skills along as a great
way to achieve their daily 20
minutes! Please make sure your
child returns their book bag to school each day.
- A Spanish message from Mrs. Werner:
Students will be given a grade each week for
participation/behavior. In addition, they may also have an
assignment. I would like to have the assignments due the
following day to make it easier for them to remember. Their name
