Classroom News

Welcome to First Grade! We are so excited for another GREAT school year. We look forward to meeting our new students and families at the Meet and Greet on Monday, August 12 at 3:00 in room 603.


The first day of school is on Tuesday, August 13th from 8:35-12:25 (minimum day schedule). Please have your child line up in the quad behind a chair that has our names on it (Mrs. A and Mrs K). Drop off at the end of the school day will be outside of the front main gate. Please pack your child a large snack (nut free) to get them through the day as there is no lunch service on minimum days as it's a long time for first graders to wait for lunch.


In these beginning weeks of school we will be concentrating on establishing the classroom routine, school and classroom rules, and getting acquainted with your child. We believe in a structured and nurturing class environment where children feel successful and safe, yet are constantly challenged to think in new ways to stretch their minds. During this time the children will also be reviewing skills and we will be observing and assessing student proficiencies.


Our class will have science class on Wednesdays with Mr. Pelham and physical education (P.E.) on Tuesdays and Thursdays with Mrs. Richey. However, the first week of school students will have PE on Thursday and Friday. Please remember to make sure that your child wears appropriate and comfortable shoes/clothes on our PE days. Our library time and art class will be on Mondays and our Music class will be on Fridays. 


We are looking forward to seeing you at Back to School Night, Wednesday, August 21st from 6:00-7:00. At that time we fully will explain our program.


Have a wonderful first week of school!



Mrs. A and Mrs. K :)
