I am thrilled to be your child's first grade teacher! We are going to have a fun and exciting year. I can't wait to get to know you all.

Just a few first day of school reminders:
  • Please remember to bring your supplies if you haven't already.
  • Students should wear tennis shoes each day.
  • Students may bring a small, clean, healthy snack and sport water bottle.
  • Please say a quick goodbye to your student in the morning.
Thank you so much for helping us all to have a great first week!

Here is a cute night before school poem you may want to read with your child tonight! I look forward to seeing you all in the morning!
