Welcome To Mrs. Still's First Grade

 
Dear Parents,
 
I would like to take this time to welcome you and your child to first grade. This is an exciting time for the both of you.
 
Just a quick reminder to make our year run more smoothly:
 
Excuses - When your child is absent from school, you must send an excuse back on the day that he or she returns.
Picking up early - If you must pick up your child early from class, please send in a note or call the office ahead of time so that your child can be ready. When picking up your child please pick him or her up at the front office. The number of the school is 438-7611.
Birthdays - It is a school policy that birthday invitations not to be passed out at school unless there is one for every child. Exceptions have been made when the invitations have been boys/girls only and every boy or girl is invited. This policy is to prevent any hurt feelings or problems between students.
 
Your child will be bringing home a vocabulary notebook.  Your child will need to practice saying these words to you.  Your child needs to recognize these words. They do not need to spell them.When your child gets new words in their notebook you will need to sign it after they say the words to you. Please practice nightly.
Robust vocabulary words your child will need to know the word and the definition.These are NOT spelling words.
 
Each week I will send home a new set of spelling words. Please practice nightly.
