The Butterfly CLass

Hi! My name is Mrs. Ballesteros and I am very excited to be your child's first grade teacher! It is going to be a fun year full of learning and new adventures. This is one of the main communication tools I plan on utilizing this year. Here, you will find information about school and classroom news, what we are learning, the first grade homework policy, awesome websites and educational resources, and even interesting facts about the Butterfly Class!

It takes a community to teach a child, a community of parents, guardians, and teachers working together. Parents and guardians are encouraged to email me with any questions or concerns you may have at

Also, please sign up for Remind. Remind is a private messaging platform that enables teachers and families to communicate with one another. I plan on using Remind as a way to communicate classroom/school events, classroom needs, and much more. If you are interested in push notifications or text notifications about our classroom and school, please follow these directions to receive messages from me.
