First Grade Announcements
Friday, May 21st
Dear Families: Welcome to First Grade! I look forward to an exciting, rewarding and very different school year with your child; filled with happy, new beginnings and learning experiences. I know there is nothing more important to you than the future of your child, and the uncertainty about their educational future is at the forefront of your concerns. School officials and I are working diligently to ensure that your kids are protected and safe. Our school has chosen remote learning and supplying resource packets for the first nine weeks of school. We will also be providing plenty of other educational resources to all students. I understand that it is easy to get overwhelmed, but you must remind yourself that we are experiencing one of the greatest challenges in our world with this pandemic. I am here to give your child all the support needed for a successful school year. Please be patient and understanding with not only me but also yourself during this time. It is my belief that a child’s success is based on a cooperative parent/teacher relationship. With your help and input, your child is going to learn just fine. I look forward to working with you throughout the year. Personally, let me add that my intentions are to provide a happy, non-threatening atmosphere that is firm, but loving, and a well-balanced curriculum with activities that promote learning as “fun and useful”. If any questions arise that concern your child, please feel free to contact me.
