Back to School Night

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents who came to Back to School Night.  It is a pleasure to know that I will be working with caring and supportive parents.  If you have any questions and/or concerns regarding your child’s education, please do not hesitate to contact me.

By working together, I hope to help your child have a successful first grade experience.

First Week

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!

 

 

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.

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.
