Mrs. Taylor's Jungle Times

Newsletter for September 5th

Welcome to First Grade

Hi! My name is Mrs. Taylor, your First Grade Teacher or Jungle Guide. I am so excited that you will be in my class this year! I can’t wait to meet you and start our year together.

I know you are going to love first grade. Our theme this year will be “Wild about Learning.” We will have lots of fun reading and writing stories, solving math problems, celebrating special days, exploring lots of subjects, and working together. This year you will learn and grow so much!


First Day of School

Thursday, September 5th is a 1:00 dismissal. You will need to bring a snack or snack money to school that day. We will be busy meeting new friends, learning the rules of the class, reading stories, and playing games.

First Full Day of School

Friday, September 6th is our first full day of school. It is a long day. I know you might be excited or nervous to eat lunch in the cafeteria. It will not be long before you are a pro with this. Don’t worry we will be there to help you out
