First Grade News


I am very excited about the upcoming school year and I look forward to getting to know 

you and your child. Below, you will find link to the Colorado Department of Education.  By

 clicking on this link, you will find the state standards for first grade. 

These are the Common Core Standards that all first graders must be taught and all of our 

lessons in class will be based upon

Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns about your child's class. I

firmly believe that a child's education is collaboration between home and school!

Upcoming Events 


*First Grade Back to School Night*

I am moving my daughter to college on Aug.15th, and therefore will not be here for the scheduled Back to School night/BBQ.  I can't wait to meet you all and get the kids situated in first grade, so I am hosting Back to School Night for the 1st graders only on Tuesday, Aug. 14th.  Please come anytime between 5:30-7:00 pm to drop off your child's supplies and check out our classroom.  There will not be dinner, but snacks will be provided!


*Our first day of school is Tuesday, August 21st.
