Welcome to Mrs. Del Prete's 1st Grade class!
I am looking forward to a great year with you and your child! This is my 20th year teaching, (19 of them here at Swift School.....I can't believe it either!). I have taught Kindergarten, 2nd grade, 6th grade, and 1st grade, and absolutely love my job! I am always trying to find new ways to ensure that school and learning is fun and exciting. We will learn through many, many modalities, including interactive centers and hands-on activities. I don't like to sit still for very long, either!
Please look in your child's homework folder each night for important information and daily homework. Reading/Spelling homework packets are sent home of Friday and due the FOLLOWING FRIDAY! Math HW is given each night, Monday through Thursday, and the READING/BEHAVIOR Log in the back of your child's folder needs to be completed by a parent EVERY DAY.
