Welcome to 1st Grade! I am so excited to be your teacher! Our classroom is made to feel like one big family where everyone treats each other with kindness and respect. My goal is for students to feel loved and secure in our school. For the first few weeks of school we will focus on getting to know each other and building a strong classroom community. We are going to have a lot of fun this year, and we will learn a lot!

Expectations

Homework will be sent home each Monday and is due on Friday. On Tuesdays, you will receive your student’s graded work as well as a newsletter. This newsletter goes through what we are learning each week and includes our weekly spelling list. If you have any questions, please see the contact information listed at the top of the page.
