Welcome to First Grade!

I’ve already subscribed some parents to the blog for the 2018-2019 school year if I was able to locate an email address for you, WELCOME!

Letters to students have been mailed and should be arriving early next week!  Our first day of school is on Thursday, August 23.  I’ve enclosed a name tag in my welcome letter for the children to wear on the first day of school.  I’ll be wearing a matching one so we can easily recognize one another on the first day of school.

Students are welcome to bring a small stuffed animal that fits into their back pack on the first day of school.  It’s always nice to have a friend with you!

It is helpful to send your child to school with a full sized back pack and the following supplies:

4 glue sticks

1 full sized pencil box (not a pencil bag)

Expo markers (any color or thickness is fine)

Crayons (16 count max)

2  bar erasers

students may bring markers or colored pencils if they choose to do so

I have plenty of pencils, scissors,  hi-liters, and folders that I’ll be sharing with the class.  Donations of tissues and hand sanitizer are always welcome.

Here’s the menu for the first day of school:

A lunch – pasta with sauce

B lunch – egg mccomet

C lunch -PB &J

D lunch – yogurt and string cheese.

Students may of course pack their lunch, too!  Students who are buying lunch may bring their money to school in a ziplock back.  Place his/her first and last name on the bag along with 1-T.  This will help us to get the money into your student’s account easily.  You may also place money in your child’s lunch account by going to MySchoolBucks.com

We’ll have four specials during the first half of the year.  This year our schedule looks like this:

A -Applied Engineering

We’ll rotate through the specials each week.  Sometimes we’ll have the same special two times in one week.
