Welcome to a new school year. I am very excited to be your child’s first grade teacher. I am looking forward to working with you and your child and having an exciting and successful year. First grade is a time for many exciting happenings. I hope that you enjoy the year as you watch your child grow academically and socially.
This year the students will learn to work independently. This will happen differently for all of the students. It may happen slower for some, but we will work on this as a team. It is so exciting to watch the children grow and learn. I think I get as excited as the children when they reach a goal in the classroom.
Please put your child’s name on their coat, hat, lunchbox and book bag. This will help if things get lost. Please check your child’s book bag daily. Everything will be sent home in their folder/book bag.
Parent volunteers are always welcome to help out in the classroom. If you are interested in volunteering, please let me know. You can contact me by phone 330-799-5211 ext. 61000, by email firstname.lastname@example.org, or by writing a note.
Please read the ABC’s of Mrs. McGoogan’s Class. This will tell you everything you need to know about how the classroom is run.
Again I am very excited to have your child in my class. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
