Dear 1J Parents,

We had a fun week in First Grade! The class is settling down and remembering our classroom routines. I am proud of each of them!

Please sign up to be a Mystery Reader for 1J. Your student will LOVE to see you in our classroom. Only half of our students have someone signed up. Please go to my classroom website or parentsquare and sign-up at your earliest convenience.

I am happy to see some students already reading AR books and taking AR tests. Remember the First Grade requirement is for each student to pass (80% or higher) at least 4 AR books a month. I have PLENTY of AR books in the classroom, so let me know if your child needs help finding a good book to read. They are also encouraged by the school librarians to check-out an AR book each week.

Please go to the Renaissance Home Connect on the HTS website. At this site you can see your child’s score and what AR books he/she has taken. You can also sign-up to receive email notifications when your child has taken an AR test. To do this, sign into the Renaissance Home Connect (details below) and click “email setup” at the top of the page. Check it out!

The username is – your child’s first initial of their first name and their whole last name

Password—abc ( for all students)

FOR EXAMPLE—my username would be: mjasperson my password would be: abc

I have updated parent square. You can find all the important notes, newsletters, updated 1J calendar, Star of the Week schedule and our Mystery Reader sign-up. Please check out 1J Parent Square and let me know if you have any questions.

Friendly Reminders:

Your child will usually bring home a weekly reading test along with his/her spelling test on Fridays. Please look over the reading tests and make corrections with your child. The test does not have to be returned. It will give you as a parent a better idea of the areas your child may need extra practice with. Let me know if you have questions about this.

SPELLING CITY is a great website for all students. It is for on-line practices and games using our spelling words. The first grade teachers have already uploaded our spelling words to the site. Children should visit often! We went to this site in class on Wednesday. Here is the exact web address the first grade teachers have set up to help the student practice: or you can get to it from my website.
