P-Prepare to Learn




E-Enthusiasm for Learning








You can always email me:


There are many different aspects of first grade that I want you and your child to understand. Learning to be responsible and organized are two very important life skills. The Homework Folder and Planner is a key to developing these skills in first grade. It is our tool for daily communication with each other. Your child will fill in the daily boxes with homework and other information each Friday for the next week. Make sure you sign or initial in that area on the right-hand side of the box each night and remove anything from the homework folder that is on the "keep at home" side.

Remember to return all library books every morning whether you have finished reading them or not. Students are able to test books in the morning after thier morning work is completed. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that they have read and know the book before testing. :)


A Parent Communication Envelope will come home each Monday. Please empty the envelope of all your child’s work, announcements from the office and Progress Report. Please sign the progress report and return it the next day. You may keep the papers at home. I will keep the signed report and you will get them back at the end of the year. Reviewing papers with your child is a very important way to enhance your child’s education.
