Welcome to First Grade! I am thrilled to be your child's guide through this incredible year.  First Grade is a time of tremendous growth.  Your child will expand on the foundation set in kindergarten.  You'll be amazed at how well they learn to read and write.  Their math skills will grow exponentially - they will be learning the roots of critical thinking and problem solving in addition to many concrete skills. 
 
Back to School Night
 Tuesday, August 28th, 5:30 pm -6:15 pm. This is an adults only evening.
Supplies
Please send your child to school with a backpack, lunchbox and water bottle each day.  I recommend writing your student's name on these items as they are often similar to other students and frequently left at the lunch tables.   Please do not send juice or sweetened drinks as ants can be a problem.  I will be providing students with necessary supplies including pencil boxes, pencils, crayons, scissors and glue. However, if your child would like to bring his/her own pencil box and supplies that is perfectly fine. We use our supplies quite often and are greatly appreciative of replenishment.  Should you wish to donate any supplies, thank you in advance.  We are always in need of glue sticks, copy paper, tissues, Clorox wipes and treasure box items.
 
Lunch: Lunch is at 11:00 a.m along with our second graders.  If you would like your child to buy lunch please stop by the cafeteria to set up an account.  In addition to lunch, the children will have a recess time later in the day so you may want to send an additional snack.  It is helpful to label the additional snack so that it isn’t eaten during lunch time. 
 
Dismissal

·       Parents or older siblings will find our class at the front, right side of the school near the staff lounge door and rolling gates.

·    K.O.C.: Will walk as a group with the K.O.C. leaders.

 
Parent Volunteers:  We LOVE and NEED you!  We would love to have you join us for a variety of opportunities including reading and math groups, sight words, art, prep, field trips, class parties and many other options.  I will have a list of volunteer times and positions available at Back to School Night.
