Welcome to 1st Grade!Welcome to Room #9! First grade is such an important year for young learners. Throughout the year, we will enjoy working, learning and playing together in a fun and supportive environment!If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will do my best to respond to you promptly.HomeworkStudents will receive grade-level appropriate homework on a daily basis. I try my best to stick to the "grade level/minute homework rule" which would mean about 10 minutes of homework for 1st graders :) Homework is not typically given on Fridays. Please ensure your child's homework is neat and complete and returned the following day.
Please check your child's take home folder each night. I suggest establishing a routine for checking this folder with your child so that they know exactly what they will be returning to school the following day. This routine will help reinforce responsibility and organization at a young age :)Cafeteria NewsWhen students buy lunch they swipe their lunch card at the register and the money is deducted from their account. These cards are kept at school and will not be sent home. Snacks and bottled water cost extra, so be sure to tell your child if he/she is allowed to purchase these items. You may add funds to your child's lunch account online.BirthdaysIn lieu of birthday treats this year, instead of treats, your student may choose something different to do.Some examples are: birthday books (where your child may bring a book to read to the class), pajama day for the class, 15 minute dance party, etc. If your child thinks of something different, please let me know and depending on the activity, I will approve of it or not. Please be sure to email me what your child would rather do a couple days in advance so that I am able to inform the other students if needed (like pajama day).If your child still wishes to bring in a treat rather then picking an activity, they are still permitted to do so.
