"The summer night is like a perfection of thought".

Wallace Stevens 


I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. 


Here are a few back to school tips:

 Homework books($5.00)and first grade notebooks($1.50 each so $12 for 8) may be bought on the first day of school.  Just send in an envelope with your child's name.

You do not have to write your child's name on all school supplies.  We will take care of that in school.

Lunchboxes and backpacks should be marked with names though:)

Send in an old shirt for a smock.

Tuesday, September 8th is a half day with no lunch.

I would prefer the students to have plastic or vinyl folders.  They tend to last longer.

The first Grade supply list has them buying 2 journals.  This is an error.  We will use two of the notebooks for journals.  Students just ned the ten notebooks which they should purchase at school.


If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at first@mtregional.


Sun Trivia:

Light from the Sun reaches Earth in about eight minutes.

Every day the Sun causes about one trillion tons of water to evaporate.

Lightning is five times hotter than the Sun.
