Fun in Grade One!

First Grade News for the month of November

Thank You!!

Dear First Grade Families,

Thanks so much for all of the ways you have supported your child's learning this school year. To the many families who joined us as chaperones on our October fieldtrips-- we loved having you and look forward to having you accompany us on future trips! The work you do with your child each night to support them with fact fluency and sight word review does not go unnoticed! We are so excited about the effort that students put into their Pumpkin Book Charachter Project and we know that they could not have done it with out your guidence. It was so fun to see you enjoy time with your child before the school day at Mom's and Muffins and Dad's and Donuts.

We have high expectations for your child's success in school and, as we continue working hard for the rest of the year, your support means the world to us and will help us to ensure your children learn and master 1st grade skills.

We can't wait to share your child's progress with you during Parent/Teacher Conferences on November 5th and 6th. If you are unable to make arrangements to meet with us on either of those days, we will work with you to find a time to meet. It's important we get the chance to talk about 1st grade expectations and ways that we can work together to support your child as they work to meet their academic goals. We look forward to meeting with you soon!


Ms. Ladd, Mrs. Campbell, Ms. Pitera, Ms. Parham, Ms. Porter, and Mrs. El-Dada
