Hello, First Grade Parents!
As summer comes to an end and the excitement of a new school year is buzzing, I am looking forward to bringing in a new set of students, loving and pouring into them, and exploring a new world of educational possibilities with them. I use this website, along with a conduct calendar and a take-home folder, to update monthly calendars of events and weekly learning objectives. I also use the *Remind* app quite often. The instructions to join my text group are below in blue.
I will be posting here about new and upcoming events within our class and our school. If I reference a class website, this is the one I am talking about. Check back often!
