Welcome to First Grade !!!

Super Switch! 

 The first grade team is super excited to announce that we are giving our students the opportunity to work in both first grade classrooms. Mrs. DeRosa will be teaching all first graders literacy (reading and writing) and Mrs. Biron will be teaching word work and math. In addition, there will be many opportunities for the students to work together as a whole grade level. Be sure to ask your student about the super-switch!


This year, our classrooms will rely on community supplies. We will store supplies in community bins for everyone’s use, and everyone will have access to the same supplies for their work.

There are many reasons for having community supplies in a classroom: This system helps foster a sense that the classroom and everything in it belong to everyone; it helps children learn how to share and cooperate; it cuts down on competitiveness; and it ensures that all children have what they need.

A wish list of needed supplies you can contribute to the class is as follows:

  • Tissues for the classroom
  • Disinfectant wipes for the classroom
  • Ziploc bags for the classroom (all sizes)
