Supplies & Summer Reading Letter

Dear Incoming 1st Grade Students, Parents, and Guardians,

We are looking forward to being your child’s first grade teachers.

It is a very exciting year for students. There are many wonderful learning opportunities and you will be amazed at how much your child will grow this year. We will also have 8th grade buddies to share many special times with us, such as Friday Mass, holiday parties, and other special events.

In order for our year to run smoothly, we are asking that you have the following items ready and packed on the first day of school. All items will be collected and placed into caddies for the children to use. Please ensure your child's name is on his/her scissors.

The students are required to read the two books listed below prior to the first day of school. Please complete the Story Flag sheet for one of the selections. Please download it from our website and return it on the first day of school using the following guidelines.


Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein

Katie Morag Delivers the Mail by Mairi Hedderwick

Story Flag- Complete all of the sections about the story and then draw a picture of your favorite part in the middle. Write at least 2 sentences explaining why it was your favorite part . If necessary, use another sheet of paper and attach it to the back. Cut the flag out and glue it onto construction paper (any color).

Enjoy your summer. See you in September. Happy reading!

Sincerely yours,

The First Grade Teachers
