Mrs. Ursitti's First Grade Class


Weekly Newsletter


Our end of year AR Celebration is now being planned within the grade level. This will be one of the last opportunities to earn volunteer hours for those still in need. More information will be sent home soon on how you can help out from home or assist on the day of the event, Friday, May 19. The events we have planned over the years have always been very enjoyable and a great way to acknowledge your child’s reading success!


Please note that the CME Art Gallery and Contest will be held on Monday, May 8 from 6:30 - 8:30. Be sure to come and look for your child’s submission; artwork from every student will be featured! This is an impressive event as we always have so many creative pieces on display.


We have been very busy getting ready for Cinco de Mayo on May 5. The Mexican ponchos are strictly optional, but many of the students enjoy making these and wearing them throughout the day. Our day long celebration on Friday will feature the following stations all relating to Mexico:


  •  Holidays and festivities
  •  Dances/Games
  •  Food
  •  Marketplace
  •  Crafts
  •  Music




Have a great weekend!
