On 9/11, our school had a Patriot Day Assembly. The children, staff, and members of our community gathered together to remember the events that happened on September 11, 2001. Our class showed our patriotism by wearing red, white, and blue. In our classroom, we discussed the meaning of hero. Then we made an award for a selected hero in our lives. The children were very thoughtful and did a wonderful job on their projects.
We had a great first week of school! The children came with bright smiles and were ready to learn. They quickly settled into the classroom and are already becoming familiar with some of our daily routines.
Please check your child’s “Take Home Folder” daily. This is one of the best ways for us to communicate. All notes and classwork sent home can be kept at home. Only return homework and missed assignments to me.
I look forward to a fun and exciting school year filled with wonder and discoveries!
I hope you had a wonderful summer vacation. In just a few days, school will begin and I cannot wait to see you! We will have lots of fun, learn exciting things, and make many new friends. I am looking forward to being your teacher. I hope you are as excited as I am.
I know you received a First Grade School Supplies list back in June. Please add another notebook to the list. This means you will need 5 notebooks to help keep everything we will learn organized.
On the first day of school, please wear the name tag I sent you to help me learn your name. In addition, please bring the Dismissal Form that I had sent home as well with you so that I will know how you will be getting home. Enjoy the rest of your summer and I will see you soon!
