Welcome to First Grade

Welcome to First Grade. We learn lots of new things as well as have fun this year.
Your child will receive a Homework Letter on Mondays. This letter will list homework and what we will be working on for the week.  Your child should have a story to read and vocabulary and spelling words to study each night. Also take time to review worksheets completed in class in reading and in math that are in your child's homework folder.

**If your child is absent and you would like to pick up his/her classwork/homework, please call school before 11:00 requesting this material so that I can gather it during my planning period!

Initial or sign your child's conduct each night, including Friday night!

If you have any questions, please send a note, e-mail me, or call the office and leave a message.

If you need to meet with me, please schedule a conference in advance.  My planning period is from 1:00 to 1:30.  You can also reach me by email at
