Welcome to First Grade!

Welcome back to First Grade!

I am thrilled to have another year with your child to watch them grow and learn even more about themselves and the world around them. First grade is such a fun time and I can't wait to experience it together!

I'm looking forward to meeting students Thursday July 20th from 7:30-9:00 in our classroom C3. PLEASE bring supplies if you can. Its much easier to get them sorted before school starts!

Economics Fair Wednesday!


Our class has been invited to attend an Economics Fair on Wednesday, January 27th, during school hours.  The fair, which is hosted by NYOS third graders, provides all students involved an opportunity to learn about different aspects of economics (products, profits, pricing, etc.)  The third graders will be selling a variety of hand-made products and services. The proceeds will help fund a third grade study trip, and they will be donating 10% to a service project called Kind Coins for Kenya.  The products will cost between 10 cents and $2.00.  If you would like for your child to participate, just send some change in a baggie labeled with your child's name on Wednesday.  Students are not required to participate.
