Welcome to First Grade

Dear Parents and Student,

Welcome to First Grade!  I hope you are as excited as I am about starting the new school year.  I always look forward to meeting my new students and starting our community of learning!

This was a busy summer with my oldest son playing baseball in the California Collegiate League and my youngest son playing Seattle baseball.  We were able to end the summer with a family vacation to Hawaii.   However, I am looking forward to getting back into our routines and schedules.  I hope you all had a wonderful summer with many stories to share and write about. 

It will be my privilege and honor to work with you this year, so I want to thank you for this opportunity.  My goal is to provide a positive and happy experience for your child in first grade.  You can help me by having your child answer a few survey questions that will help me get to know him or her right away.  Please return the survey at your convenience. 

Back to School Night will be Tuesday, September 3rd from 4-6.  It is a great time for your entire family to meet and greet our staff members.  Please start the night in our classroom and then enjoy visiting other areas of the school. 

Once again, I look forward to meeting with you during the Back to School Night to help ease the transition into the first days of school.  Together we will help make this a successful academic and social year for your son or daughter.    If at any time you have questions or concerns about anything, I hope that you will feel comfortable in coming to me and together we can find solutions.    

          Happy last days of summer!
