I am so excited that you are in my class this year! We are going to do some great things this year. You will become a reader, an author, a mathematician, a scientist, and a historian and I cannot wait to see all you learn and all I learn from you. First grade can be difficult at times, but I am here to encourage you, challenge you, and help you in any way I can.
Parents, if you have any concern or praise to share with me please do! I love to hear about softball game wins, football game tackles and throws, a tough book that a child read on their own, or a fun weekend! I fully believe that parent/teacher communication helps a child tremendously. Your child will bring home a CIRCUS folder every night. This will have homework, a pencil pouch for any money/notes that needs to be turned in, the weekly newsletter, and breakfast/lunch menu. I hope it will help keep you and your child informed and organzied so we can have a successful year.
This year will be "A Year to Amaze!"
