1st Grade – Gandy

2015-2016 School Year

Dear Parents and Families,

Welcome to First Grade! We are looking forward to being your child’s teacher this school year. It will be a year full of successes, hard work and fun!

As teachers, we are committed to making learning fun! It’s going to be a very busy and rewarding year for your child. We will make every effort to help him/her feel safe, comfortable and happy. One of your child’s first grade goals will be to read and write independently. We will do this every day and you will be amazed at how quickly your child will catch on. We will also begin to spell words correctly, participate in hands-on math and science concepts and work cooperatively with classmates. We will also be learning math concepts that will turn our first graders into problem solvers! We are looking forward to challenging your child and meeting his/her individual needs.

The parent/teacher team is extremely important for your child to get the most out of their educational experience. It is one of our goals to keep the lines of communication open throughout the year. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns that you may have. We are going to strive to make your child’s first grade year a terrific one!
