First day K – Fulton welcomes new students and their parents. Mrs. Jayne hosted a Kindie-Parent reception after parents dropped off their students. The kids had a lot of fun reading books, touring the school and making new friends. Kindergarteners spent their first day at school exploring the school, their classrooms and materials.


First graders – Mason Danfield and Riley Williams, from Ms. Newberry’s class, learned about first grade with the use of Thinking Maps.


Third graders – Fulton students are working together in teams to help build community. They discussed the importance of rules in the classroom, the lunchroom and on the playground, and created a tree map of each to share with the class. They also participated in other “getting to know you” activities, including taking math-related surveys to find out more about their classmates likes. Calendar:

FIRST GRADERS: In Ms. Newberry’s class, Mason Danfield and Riley Williams learn about Thinking Maps.


First grade - The students started off the year getting to know each other, learning about the adventures that await them in first grade and creating a cohesive classroom climate. Third grade - Both students and teachers have all successfully jumped back into the school routine. This year the curriculum is filled with reading, writing, new math concepts, science and social studies. A field trip to Kartchner Caverns will be in second quarter, thanks to tax credit donation support which will make this trip possible. Fourth grade - How to graph birthdays will be part of Tarwater students’ first year, along with learning about the probability of birthday matches based on the number of people being graphed. Students are also studying germs, and will investigate to see whether soap or hand sanitizer do a better job of keeping hands clean. Art Masterpiece – The general parent meeting for Art Masterpiece is at 1 p.m. Wed., Aug. 10 for new and returning art guide volunteers. Each month art guides introduce the students to a new artist and examples of their works. The students then create their own artwork using the techniques of the artist studied.
