8.17.18 First Grade News

Hello everyone! Click the link above to access the newsletter for this week. Please be on the lookout for these every Friday! Here you will find any important updates or new information! I recommend to bookmark our classroom website to your internet browser so you have easy access.

We have had a fabulous first week back to school, I am so very excited for what is to come!

Have a wonderful weekend,


Great meeting everyone!

Hi all! I was so glad to be able to meet everyone yesterday (or Monday!) and I am so excited to launch off our first grade year together! Remember, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at any time, I try my best to reply to emails as soon as I can (please keep in mind that I get lots of these daily).

If you did not send in the 3 required journals and folders for your Champion, please make sure to send them in on Tuesday because we use these in our room ALOT!

I highly recommend sending a water bottle that can live at school, this reduces the amount of times Champions need to leave the classroom and miss out on learning times during the school day.

If you would like to volunteer and did not sign up on the paper during open house – let me know! 🙂
If you did not attend Open House , BUT your Champion will be at ICI for the First Day of school please let me know!
Important Dates:
August 14th – Early Release (11:30) – First Day
August 15th – No Late Start, it WILL be a full day of school
August 17th – Back to School Bash – 5:00-7:00

Some Important Links for You
First grade website (this is our grade level website which is separate from our classroom website!)
*Please remember that throughout the year I will be updating you via email and/or on our website, so it is very important that you check your email regularly so you do not miss anything (if you do not have access to technology, please let me know and we can work out an alternative form of communication for you).
So nice to meet you all and I look forward to Tuesday!
