Welcome to Grade 1

Welcome back to another wonderful year of learning and growing!  We would like to extend an official welcome to you and your child, particularly if you are new to our school.  We are very excited to have the opportunity to work with you and your child and look forward to developing an effective parent/teacher partnership in your child’s learning.  

A Little About Ms. Fletcher

I am very excited to be at Normandeau teaching grade one again this year.  I have been with Red Deer Public Schools for four years now.  I have had the privilege to teach grade one, pre-kindergarten and grade three.  I grew up in a small town east of Red Deer in a family of 6.  I have many hobbies but some of my favorites include movies, camping, and playing with my new puppy, Lola.  I am looking forward to getting to know your child and cannot wait to see what the year brings.

Drop off and pick up

School begins at 8:15 am.  Please drop off you child at the grade one doors which are located at the east side of the school by the ball wall. One of the grade one teachers will meet the grade ones at the door to let them in.

 Please pick up your child at the same doors at 2:50 pm. All grade ones will be dismissed by their teacher from this door.

 Please note all visitors coming in the school must come through the front door and sign in at the office.

Student Agendas

The agenda is to be returned to school DAILY.  It serves as a communication link between student, parent and teachers.  Parents are asked to read and initial each entry.  This helps the children to learn to be accountable with this responsibility. If you have a message, question or concern please write it in the agenda, or email me at justine.fletcher@rdpsd.ab.ca 


Library Book Exchange

Our library day is Tuesday.  Please ensure library books are sent back on or prior to the exchange day.  We will have a location in the classroom to collect books. If your child has not returned their book, they will not be able to take another one out. 

Read At Home

We will begin a Read At Home program in October.  Please ensure that your child keeps his/her Read At Home book with the agenda and that it is recorded properly.  Please do not be alarmed if your child is bringing home books which you may think are too easy for him or her.  Our goal is to read fluently and to be able to retell the story with as much detail as possible.  This means that the children will need to look at the pictures and make reasonable predictions as they do a “picture walk” and read the story.
