First Grade Newsletter Submission:
We are excited to welcome our new students (and parents) to first grade this year! First grade is a wonderful new learning experience for everyone, and it requires a great deal of time, patience and encouragement from parents.
Daily attendance is important for first graders as they are learning the new procedures for first grade. Please make sure your child is on time and at school each day. The bell rings at 8:25, and the tardy bell rings at 8:35. Students need to be in their classrooms ready to learn before that time.
Homework is now beginning to come home, and it is important for each child to complete it every night and return it to school. The children need to develop good homework habits early in their lives so they can use these skills throughout their school years. The homework also reinforces the phonics and math concepts that we are teaching daily. Spelling lists will begin coming home on September 11th.
We are learning the number words and color words, and we are reviewing the alphabet names and sounds. Please look for our “Math News” letter for information regarding what your child is learning in Math.
If you haven’t the online registration process on the district portal, please do so as soon as possible. If you are not sure how to do this, please contact your child’s teacher. The acceptable use policy needs to be signed on the portal in order for your child to use school computers during their computer time.
We are having some complications with the My Connect group text list for our classrooms. If you receive an invitation to join a text or e-mail group from My Connect, please respond. Please be patient with us as we work through the process of getting everyone in the loop!
We would like to thank all the parents for the extra supplies for our classrooms and for those who signed up to volunteer their time and energy to help our first graders. We are looking forward to a fun and successful year!
