We are so excited to have your child be a part of our First Grade! This year our team consists of Mrs. Adelman, Mrs. Heys, Mrs. Broadway, and Mrs. Bryant. You will be amazed at the learning growth that will take place during this year. Your child will be engaged in writing to three different genres (summary of narrative, opinion, and narrative), learn to read and comprehend stories, add and subtract numbers through story problems, graphing, and timed tests, and be more aware about the world around them through our science and social studies units.
We are also very excited to have our first grade students continue to meet with Mr. Valerino our music teacher and work with our Science Facilitator Mrs. Frankian.
We have a great year planned for the First Graders and continue to ask for your support. Teaching your child is a team effort. Your child will achieve greatness with us working together!
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your child’s First Grade teacher.

Quick Notes from the First Grade Teachers:
Your child may bring a small healthy snack to eat at recess. We do suggest that you always have available a snack, such as a granola bar, that won’t go bad in your child’s back pack for any chance that your child does get hungry by recess. Your child may also bring a water bottle to drink during class time.
All Classes - Reading fluency is a focus for first graders. Reading passages will come home weekly to provide additional fluency practice for students. Please return the passages every Friday, signed and completed.
Reminder that your child should be completing 7 Dreambox online math lessons weekly.
Please help your child to be able to tie their own shoes.
