Welcome to Mrs. Wensel's 1st Grade Class 


I am so thankful to have begun another awesome year with outstanding students!






New weekly packets are given out on Mondays and due on Fridays.  Thank you!



AR News

*AR books must come back and forth to school each day.  We will have time to read during the day*

Please see the AR folder in the back of your child's binder for AR information. You will find a letter explaining our AR program, an AR calendar, and a letter with directions on how you can log in to check on your student's AR progress. 

AR will be a grade this year. Please encourage your child to read for at least 20 minutes every day!
