Student Welcome Letter

August 2019

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 two daughters named Addison (who is 3 years old) and Emma (who just turned 2!), a dog named Bella, I love the color purple, and I love going to the beach and spending time with my family. 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 on the first day of school. I know that we will have a great year together!  Enjoy the rest of your summer!

                                       Your friend and teacher,

                                                   Mrs. Cortina
