Dear First Grade Families,
Hello! I am thrilled to be your child’s first grade teacher! Your input is very important to me! Please let me know how your child feels about first grade. I believe that your child receives the best education possible, when you and I work as a team. Anytime you have something that you would like to discuss with me, please write me a note, drop by the classroom, or give me a phone call. I will get back to you as quickly as possible. I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year. My goal is to make your child’s learning experience a truly positive one.
Also, since we do have the uniform policy (solid white shirts with collars and blue pants, shorts, skirts or jumpers) we have lots of identical clothing. PLEASE label your child’s sweaters, coats, lunchboxes and all those other commonly misplaced items.
I understand how exciting and nervous you all may be about your child taking this big step. Please be reassured that we are in this together! While I know this will be difficult, please do your best to leave your child as quickly as possible when they are dropped off on the first day of school. It really does help your child transition better. I promise they are in wonderful, caring hands. I have an open door policy and you are welcome to stop by anytime! I look forward to meeting you at the open house on Wednesday, August 30th, 3-6pm. Have a fantastic rest of your summer and I will see you Tuesday, September 5th at 8am.
Your First Grade Teacher
