Dear Room 110 Students and Families,

Welcome to first grade! My name is Ms. von der Heyde, and I am so excited to be your teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. This is my second year at Claypit Hill School, but my first as a first grade teacher! This past school year I’ve worked as a special education teacher’s assistant in the fourth grade. I’ve also worked with fourth and fifth grade student council, and the K-4 BASE program at Claypit Hill.

This summer, I’ll be working at a summer camp in Natick. This will be my sixth summer there! When I’m not working at camp, I’ll spend my time running, swimming, and having outdoor adventures with friends and family. I can’t wait to hear about your summer adventures in September.

We have a great year ahead of us! We will transform into readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, and explorers. We’ll also learn about maple sugaring, our national symbols, and folk tales! We’ll start our year by learning about each other. Please make a small poster (12” x 18”) with photos and labels of the people and places that are special to you. We will share it together during the first few weeks of school.

Please bring the following supplies to the first day of school so that we can all be ready to learn!

1 box of pencils

1 box of colored pencils

1 box of thick tip markers

1 pencil case (about 5” by 8” and labeled with your name)

1 glue stick

1 headset for computer use (labeled with your name)

1 durable pocket folder

If your last name starts with A-M: 1 box of tissues

If your last name starts with N-Z: 1 container of wipes (Method or other green cleaner)

Optional: 1 bottle of hand sanitizer

Please send me an email when you get the chance at so I have your email address on file. Throughout the year, I will send updates and reminders via email.

I look forward to our first grade adventures together! I hope you have a great summer!

See you soon,

Ms. von der Heyde
