Welcome to First Grade! It is going to be an exciting and busy year. The students will be learning so many new skills; almost on a daily basis. Regular attendance is crucial to your child's success. Cooperation between child, teacher, and parent/guardian wil enhance our learning experiences this year. I am always looking for adult family members to volunteer to work in the classroom.
School Hours are: Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri 8:00 am - 2:20 pm and Weds 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.
Our special classes are: PE on Mondays and Thursdays, Computer on Tuesday, Library on Wednesdays and Music on Fridays
Homework packets go home every Monday (or Tuesday if there is a holiday) in a blue homework folder. Folders go back and forth to and from school every day. But the homework packets are not due until Friday.
In addition to the regular curriculum of Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies, I believe the daily use of Tool Box skills in the classroom and playground help foster a positive learning environment. These tools are useful at home as well. Students are expected to be good listeners and follow our school rules. Those rules are to be kind, be honest, and be responsible.
Your child may bring a healthy snack every day. As part of our healthy eating program, we will not be celebrating individual birthdays in the classroom with cookies, cupcakes, pizza, etc. Your child will be recognized on his/her birthday with a special table decoration and a balloon. We will have ONE BIG BIRTHDAY celebration for EVERYONE in June, at the end of the year.
