It is with great pleasure that I welcome you and your child to our first-grade class. First grade is a very exciting year filled with curiosity and new learning opportunities. I hope your first weeks of school have been pleasant and that everyone is ready for a wonderful year of working and learning together. I am looking forward to the opportunity of having your child in my classroom this year.
It is very important to me that your child has a positive and enjoyable learning experience in first grade. It is my goal to create a classroom community in which every student can succeed and excel. I value your opinions as a parent, and understand that it is important for us to communicate and work together to support your child’s growth and learning. I am truly looking forward to building a relationship with you and your child.
This year our class will be using class dojo for parent communication and classroom management. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at:
