It was so great to get to meet so many of you last night! I am excited to start this first grade journey with your child; we will learn and grow so much this year! Since it is the last official weekend before school starts, I will keep this note short but I wanted to give you a little information about our classroom and the start of school.
- On the first day of school, I will be sending home your student’s writing folder. Please decorate the folder with pictures that are meaningful to your child. We will cover these folders with contact paper and they will be source of inspiration for writing this year. Images can be family photographs, pictures of special moments in your child’s life or pictures of family trips. Please send the folder back as soon as possible, you might want to begin gathering photos for the folder this weekend.
- I will communicate with families through the classroom blog; I will try to post weekly in the blog so please subscribe to the blog so you will not miss any vital information.
- You can always reach me by email and I am available to meet before/after school with advanced planning.
- Please send your student with a healthy snack daily; in first grade each student is responsible to bring their own snack daily.
Thank you and enjoy your last weekend before school starts!
