Our Classroom 

Welcome to First Grade!

We are going to have a great year!  We are going to be busy with reading groups. math stations, science experiments, and writing journals.  I know we are going to accomplish a lot!

This year we will working together to learn how to be responsible citizens in our classroom. Your child will be responsible for reading every night and getting his/her reading log signed.  There is weekly homework to be completed and turned in on Thursday.  Please choose one of the three homework activity choices to complete at home, and always remember to put your name on your homework!  Your child will also be responsible for studying the weekly spelling words.  Spelling tests will be on Fridays. 

Every student will have two folders.  A nightly folder that will contain your child's reading log and book, homework, spelling words, any papers that need to filled out and returned, and any communication between school and home.  If you have to send a note to school please put it into the nightly folder!  Nightly folders will go home every night!  The other folder your child will have is a Tuesday folder.  The Tuesday folder will have your child's graded work from the previous week.  Please review these papers at home and keep these papers at home!  Return the empty folder to school on Wednesday. 

We will have snack daily at 9:50.  Please pack a healthy snack for your child to eat every day!  If your child would like a drink with his/her snack you may send in water or juice.  Please NO soda or sugary drinks!

Please inform me of any transportation changes if your child will be going home a different way than their normal routine.  This will help me make sure everyone is where they need to be at the end of the day!  If your child's transportation needs change during the school day please call the front office before 2:30 so the message can get to me before dismissal!

If you need to meet with me or communicate with me please do so!  It is easiest to reach me by email, use the email me link at the top of this webpage.  You can also reach me by sending a note to school with your child in his/her nightly folder, or by calling the school.  I am available to meet with you during my planning time on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, from 9:10 to 9:45.
