Welcome

Dear Boys and Girls,

Welcome to First Grade!

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.  Also, please keep the ruler (on the supplies list) at home.  I have plenty of rulers in the classroom for when we need them.

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!

Love,

Mrs. Guarneri

 

 

 

The heart of teaching…

If I Could…

I would teach each child to be positive,
to smile, to love and be loved.

I would teach each child to take time to
observe some miracle of nature – the song
of a bird, the beauty of a snowflake,
the orange glow of a winter sunset.

I would teach each child to feel warmly about
the peers for whom the task of learning
does not come easily.

I would teach each child that it is OK to show
their feelings by laughing, crying, or
talking with someone they care about.

Every day I would have each child feel special,
and through my actions, each one would
know how much I really care.
