Welcome to Mrs. Marucheau's Website!
Here is where you fill find all the information you need to learn about what's going on in First Grade!

Hello parents and students,

Welcome back to the 2017 - 2018 school year. I will be your child’s first grade teacher in room 112. My name is Mrs. Molly Marucheau (Mara-Show). I am thrilled to be your teacher for the 2017- 2018 school year. It’s going to be a fun year filled with lots of learning and adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us. I can’t wait to learn all about each of you, but I first want to tell you a little about me.

I was born and raised in Northbrook, IL. I am the middle of 5 children, 3 sisters and 1 brother. I attended Regina Dominican for High School and then attended Saint Mary’s University for College. I earned my bachelor’s in Human Services and then continued school and earned my masters in Elementary Education. I am married and we have 3 very energetic boys, Louie (5) and Walter (4) and Finn (3). They keep us very busy while always putting a smile on our face.

This is my 10th year teaching First Grade at Leigh school and I couldn’t be more excited. Prior to Leigh, I worked at Avoca School for 3 years as an aide. I love my job because education is always changing and each year brings new and exciting challenges and adventures. I love watching the academic growth first grade students make, you will be amazed.

A few things to know as we begin the school year...

Take Home folder:

A take home folder will go home every night. Please check the folder each night and be sure to take everything out. Please only return the homework and other notes that need to be returned to school in the folder.


Math: Your child will have a math page of homework every night, unless noted on the website. Please complete both sides of the homework and return to school the next day.

Reading: A Reading log will go home every Monday and is due back, filled out,  and due back every Friday. It is important that your child read each night for at least 20 minutes and then record the books on the reading log. If there are questions to answer on the reading log, please use neat handwriting and complete sentences.

Reading bag: A reading bag will be sent home each night, please have your child practice reading the books in there. There will also be a bag of sight words in the reading bag for them to practice.  Please return the bag with the books and sight words each day as we also use it in class


We will have a short snack break each day so your child may bring 1 small healthy snack. Some suggestions for healthy snacks are fruit cups, applesauce, fruit, or vegetables. Please do not send any cookies, chips or candy or your child will have to wait until lunch to eat it.  No yogurts with candy on top or chocolate filled croissants, they will have to wait until lunch.


**Please make sure the reading bag comes back everyday as we use it in class each day! **


Read for 20 minutes each night. Fill out reading log by Writing the title of one book and answering one question. 

The reading log is due back every Friday.  (This is not optional)

**Please make sure your child reads and follows the directions. Especially if it says to draw. **
