Welcome to our classroom! I am looking forward to a great year with you and your child. First grade is an exciting year of academic, social, and emotional growth. I am excited to work with you to make this a successful year for your child.
Here are just a few basics that you need to know. More information about specific routines, policies, and procedures will come home as they are introduced in the classroom.
- Please send in a healthy snack with your child every day.
- As per building policy, birthday treats will no longer be allowed in class. We will celebrate your child! We will make a special birthday book and we will have a monthly birthday lunch in the classroom.
- Your child needs to bring his yellow take home pocket folder daily.
Please feel free to contact me throughout the school year if you have any questions or concerns. I can be reached at Ledgeview between 7:45 and 3:00 each day. If I am unable to come to the phone immediately, feel free to leave me a voice mail message. I will return your call as soon as possible. I also check my email daily; firstname.lastname@example.org. (Be aware, I may not get to it until the end of the day.) Good old-fashioned notes work well too!
Thank you for helping us to get off to a great start!
