I hope you are excited about the 2016-2017 school year. First grade is an important year for students’ academic and social development. We will be learning math strategies in addition and subtraction; mastering fundamentals and promoting a love of reading; and fostering creative writing skills. I love to see students’ progress in these areas.
Meet the Teacher is Friday morning (8/5/16, 8:30 a.m.). Report to the gym at 8:00 a.m. and come to the classroom at 8:30 a.m. Please bring supplies at this time. The only two items that need to be labeled with students’ names are pencil pouches and scissors. Scissors should be placed inside the pencil pouches. Containers will line the hall for you to deposit supplies.When you arrive, please complete the contact information and student transportation mode forms, and sign up to be a room parent or volunteer, if you are interested.
I look forward to meeting you on Friday. I know this will be a rewarding year for all of us.
