Student Welcome Letter

August 2017

Dear First Grader, 

        Hello, I am Mrs. Cortina, your first grade teacher.  I hope you are having lots of fun this summer. I am very excited to be your first grade teacher and can hardly wait to meet you! Here are some things about me you might like to know about me: I have a daughter named Addison, another daughter on the way, a dog named Bella, I love the color purple, and I love going to the beach and spending time with my family. I will be spending some time this school year with Addison and my new daughter, and I will be coming back to Dutch Neck right before Spring Break, but Miss Baskin will be your teacher until then.  Miss Baskin and I have been very busy getting our room ready for your first day of school and it won’t be long before school starts.  First grade is a very exciting place to be.  We are going to have so much fun singing songs, playing games, reading great books and poems, learning math, writing, and being first grade scientists.

        When you come to school, you will have your very own desk.  Your desk will have your name on it so you will be able to find it easily.  If you bring your supplies (see list) on the first day of school, you will be able to put them in your new desk.

        The first day of school is a full day of school so we will eat lunch in the cafeteria.  You can bring your own lunch or buy one in the cafeteria.  You will also need to bring a healthy snack from home.  I am looking forward to meeting you very soon and I know you’re going to have a great first day with Miss Baskin.  I know that we will have a great year together!  Enjoy the rest of your summer!

                                       Your friend and teacher,

                                                   Mrs. Cortina

Dear First Grader,


Hello, I am Miss Baskin and I will be your first grade teacher until the spring when Mrs. Cortina comes back to Dutch Neck. I hope you are having a fun and exciting summer so far! The first day of school is right around the corner and I am so excited to meet you. I am really looking forward to the time we will be spending together.


Before we meet, I would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I have a cat named Link and two turtles named Sheldon and Dee. My favorite color is pink and I love spending time with my friends and family. Two of my most favorite places to visit are the beach and Disney World.


I can’t wait to meet you so I can learn all about your favorite things! First grade is a great time and I know you will think so too. We will be learning lots of new things and will have lots of fun doing it. Enjoy the rest of your summer. See you soon!



Miss Baskin
