Dear Friend,


   Welcome to first grade! My name is Miss Solon and I am so excited to be your teacher! I can’t wait to get to know you and share a fun filled school year together. This year will include lots of reading, writing and fun math games! We will also be studying the sun and moon and patriotic symbols too. I’m looking forward to a great year!


   I hope you are having a fantastic summer spending time with family and friends. My summer vacation has been very relaxing! I’ve spent a lot of time enjoying the Jersey Shore. The last few weeks I have been very busy getting our classroom ready for you and your classmates! You have a lot to look forward to in first grade and I cannot wait to meet you. On the first day of school, please bring along a few summer photos so we can share our summer memories with each other!


   I look forward to seeing you at our Open House on Wednesday, September 4th from 2-3 pm to meet me and see your new classroom. Our classroom is Room 110 on the Trustworthy Trail (a new room for me this year)! Our first day of school will be Thursday, September 5th which is a full day. Our school day is from 8:45 – 3:15 and we will have snack each day. Please pack a healthy snack (in a separate bag) beginning with the first day of school in order to keep you energized and ready to learn! Along with the items listed below, you will need to bring a backpack and a lunchbox with you everyday to school. Enjoy the rest of your summer! I can’t wait to meet you!



Miss Solon
