If you are able to donate apples, apple juice, apple cider, or apple sauce to our classroom please e-mail me and let me know (so that we do not end up with a lot of one and none of the others).  Donations are appreciated and are requested for Monday, September 25th.  You could also bring them to Open House since I know these items can be heavy!

Snack
We have time for snack each and every afternoon.  Please pack a snack for your student. :-) 
 
Remind
If you haven’t already signed up for Remind, please consider it.  It is an easy, quick way for you to get in contact with me.  You just text @mrshockler to 81010.  Then you can text back and forth with me about anything you may need a quick response about.  It makes life so much easier!

Homework

Homework begins this week.  You will find the first grade homework plan in your child's S.T.A.R. folder.   Also in your child's folder is their homework notebook.  Please complete the homework on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday in the notebook and return to school each day (Wednesday will be a math sheet).  Tonight will be word study.  Your child's words are found in the front pocket with the homework plan.  Then your child may choose one way to practice his/her words in his/her notebook.  The choice board is on the back of the homework plan.  There is an example on the inside cover of the notebook.  Homework should not take very long, and should allow for plenty of time to read at night, also.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

We will have snack every day before we go to Encores.  Please remember to pack a snack for your student.  I have had some Goldfish on hand for students who forgot snack, but our supply is quickly running out! 

Folders

Thank you so much for doing a great job this past week returning S.T.A.R. folders and initialing your child’s color each night.  EVERY student brought his/her folder back EVERY day last week.  Amazing – thank you!

School fees

Please remember that our school fee of $6.00 is due as soon as possible. This can be sent in your child’s blue folder.   

Dismissal

When sending in dismissal notes, please include your student’s full name, parent signature, date, bus number, and address of where your child will be getting off.  This is to make sure your student goes home safely and correctly.

Homework

We will begin homework on Monday, September 11th.  The homework plan will be in your child’s blue folder and will explain the task for each night.  It is designed to be a quick practice for students so that the focus can be on reading every night - which you can start now.  😉

First Day  

Dear Families,

It was nice to meet so many of you at Orientation!   It is sure to be an amazing year in first grade! 

Please be sure to review the information in the purple folder.  The student hand book, and the flip book for my class have valuable information to help make this year the best yet.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about any of the information provided. 

As you complete the paperwork, please double check to see if there is a back to fill out.  Both the blue and pink sheets have information to fill out on the reverse side of the paper.

Please make sure your student knows how he/she is going home each day this week.  If there are any changes from what you told me, or what you filled out, please let me know in writing so that I can send it to the office. 

I am so excited to see your first grader Monday morning! 

😊 Mrs. Hockler 


Welcome  

Welcome to First Grade! 

I am so excited to meet everyone at Orientation this coming Thursday, August 24th from 3:30pm - 5:30pm here at Morton! 

My classroom is located in F Building, Room #6.  You are welcome to bring any school supplies with you on Thursday so that your child does not have to carry everything on Monday.  

This year, I will be using a program called Remind to assist with communication.  Remind allows me to send updates directly to your phone.  It also allows you to text me directly.  It's a great option for communication.  E-mail and phone are both options, as well, but I encourage you to give Remind a try.  

To sign up, you can go to the following link in your browser on your smartphone:    

            rmd.at/hockler  

Or, you can text @mrshockler to 81010.  

Morton will continue to use a school-wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) system this year. Here is a quick overview of the different levels and expectations:  

                                     

                     

 

Feel free to e-mail me or use Remind to contact me with any questions or concerns!                  chelsey.hockler@onslow.k12.nc.us

:) Mrs. Hockler
