8/27/18 - Welcome To The Fabulous First Grade!!!
It was a joy having your children today in first grade and being their teacher. We reviewed classroom rules and
proper behavior both in the classroom and on the playground. They were attentive listeners and worked well
together in all I asked them to do. I sent home their traveling folder with the hot lunch menu inside, to be
returned by Wednesday, Sept. 5, if you want them to be getting hot lunch beginning on Monday, Sept. 10.
Our Back To School Night is Thursday, Sept. 6 and at that time I will discuss the policies and procedures in
first grade. Thank you for sending in the school supplies, etc. per my request.
Have a good night.......remember no school tomorrow :)

space is needed in their backpack for things
Reading: Each child was given a bag of booklets to keep and help strengthen their decodable skills in
reading. I suggest having your child read a booklet and discuss it with you; they may color the pictures or
mark up the words if they want. We have read some of them in class but they may need help with others;
also some booklets need to be stapled. These booklets are portable so can be brought in the car or on

We finished our story about Junie B. Jones and her trip to Hawaii today. In it she completed a photo
journal of all her adventures. I gave the students our first grade photo journal to remember many of
the fun things that we too did in first grade at St. Mary School in Room 1. ENJOY
ALL things students brought home today in their backpacks as well as in bags can be kept home......
Thanks to Mrs. Sickinger for a delicious pretzel treat at snack, and to our FABULOUS homeroom moms for
providing our pizza party for our end of the year lunch - GREAT JOB MRS. SATALIN and MRS. TOSCO !!!
