Welcome Parents

Dear Parents,                                                     

Welcome to First Grade!  We are looking forward to an exciting and challenging year for your child.  First grade is a transition from half-day kindergarten to longer periods of attending lessons, producing work, and communicating with others.  

As you get your child ready for the new school year, please make sure your child wears shoes that are safe for both playground and classroom.  Sneakers are required for P.E. and would be a good choice for everyday wear.  ANY shoe your child wears should be flat and stay on his/her feet without any effort from your child (clogs, slip-on sandals, and any type of heel, etc. can be dangerous on the playground).

Children are eating both a snack and lunch on the very first day of school. Snacks should be healthy (NO candy) and arrive in a bag that is marked with your child’s name and its purpose (Snack). As for lunch, it will be less confusing for your child if, on the first day, s/he brings a lunch instead of buying it.   If your child is purchasing a lunch, please refer to the district website for more information.  This first day will be a long one for your child and I would like to make sure s/he gets to eat lunch and snack in a relaxed manner. 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support!
