Welcome to First Grade

Welcome to first grade!  I am very excited to work with you and your child. First grade is a very exciting year; the children make incredible growth.

Things to Remember...

  • Return red folder each day
  • Read each night
  • Practice tying shoes
  • Practice high frequency words
  • Library books are due Wednesday
  • Practice reciting phone number and address
  • Practice healthy habits- washing hands, nose blowing, covering sneezes and coughs, and discourage sharing of clothing items.

***First grade is definitely a transition for many children.  It is very difficult for their little bodies to stay in school all day long.  Throughout the day we exercise, stretch, dance, & sing to help, but please be aware it may take them until November to be completely in the full-day routine.  Hang in there!***

Class Size

We have 22 students - 12 girls and 10 boys.

Scholastic Book Orders

Book orders will be sent home most months. 


Two ways to pay:
