I would like to welcome you to first grade! I hope that you are enjoying your summer and staying safe. I have been having fun at the beach and on vacation, with my family. I have two boys starting school very soon, just like you. Our classroom is almost ready, just a few last minute things to finish up to get it perfect. There’s a clue at the top of this letter as to what our class theme is this year. Make sure you practice your math facts and keep reading and writing. I can’t wait to hear about all of the books you read this summer. I will be waiting for you right outside of room 9. Bring your best smile on the first day, I can’t wait to meet you!
In an effort to make your school shopping easier, there is a tab with a list of the items needed for this school year. Please send in school supplies by September 9th. Remember to give your child his/her bus pass the first day of school and any notes about dismissal I may need. (after-care, early pick-up, etc.)
The students will be having a snack daily. Please be sure you send your child in with a peanut free, child friendly snack.
I am looking forward to meeting you on Back-to-School Night, September 21st. If you have any questions or concerns before then, please contact me. You can send a note in with your child or email me at [email protected]. I will get back to you, as soon as possible. I would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and support. Together, as parents and educators, we will work together to create a safe and happy learning experience for every student in room 9. I promise to take great care of them. :)
