class hello

 Dear First Grade Student, 

     I am extremely excited to be your teacher this year! Wow! Can you believe you are a first grader? In my opinion, first grade is the best! We are going to have so much fun and learn so many new things. We will experiment, explore, create and invent. We will learn our math facts and become stronger readers and writers. We play fun learning games, have great centers, take brain breaks and even have our own movie stage. Everyone will be able to sit in many different areas of the classroom. We have stability balls, rug cushions, lap desks,  tall tables and stools.  We will make sure you are comfortable and ready to learn!  Don't forget you will have your own locker too.  Our classroom looks great! Everything is done; I’m just waiting for YOU!
     You might be wondering who I am, so let me share a little about me. My name is Mrs. Masiello and I have been teaching first grade for 19  years. I know, that’s a long time!!!! I have a daughter, Makenzie. She recently got married and lives in Rockland, Maine.  This will be her first year teaching Kindergarten.   My sons name is Zachary.  He attends Franklin Pierce.   His dream is to be a camera operator for sporting events. He will do this because WE ALL can do whatever we want if we believe in ourselves and work hard.  Zachary play football at Franklin Pierce. Mr. Masiello and & I LOVE to travel to his games to watch him play.  My husband’s name is David and my dog is named Tyson. 
     I have been waiting all summer to meet you! I look forward to hearing all about your vacation.   Please take a look at our supply list.   It would be great if you could bring them in for our Meet & Greet on Monday , Aug. 27th.  This way, you will be all settled in for the first day of school.   You can put your pencil box in your mailbox and the extra supplies in the labeled bins. Please see the note below.  
See you soon! Enjoy the rest of your summer.
Mrs. Masiello
