Mrs. Deckwa's 1st Grade Class

Welcome to the 2018 / 2019 school year!

    Welcome to our class website1 I am excited to be your child's 1st Grade teacher for the 2018-2019 school year at Manzanita Elementary. This is an exciting time for your child and I am so happy to be part of it!

    Teaching your child is a tremendous responsibility and I will do my best to ensure that each student has a safe and motivating learning experience this upcoming year. However, I cannot do this without the help of you, the parents. We are partners in the learning process. 

    I believe that parent-teacher relationships are necessary for maximum school success.  Throughout the year I will communicate through my website, notes, telephone call, emails, report cards and parent teacher conferences.  I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time.  You can call me at school, send me a written note, or contact me via email.


(I am available anytime before or after school. Please email or call for an appointment)

Tips for a successful school year:

            1. Make sure your child gets plenty of rest each night
            2. Establish school-home routines
            3. Make nightly homework time a happy and fun experience.
            4. Read with and to your child each night
            5. Talk with your child about their day at school. Ask them about their friends and what                     they are learning.
                                         Thank you,  Mrs. Deckwa :)
