Welcome Letter

Back To School.png

Dear First Grader and Family,

            My name is Mrs. Totaro and I am your first grade teacher.  I am looking forward to meeting you on the first day of school.  My goal for us this year is to work together to create a classroom where everyone learns and has fun.  Think about what you would like our classroom to be like.  We will talk about your ideas when we meet in September. 

We will have a full day on the first day of school which is Thursday, September 6th.  Please be sure to bring a lunch and a snack.  The cafeteria will be open for you to buy lunch, also.  We will practice that in the morning so that you will know exactly what to do.   Please wear a name tag with your name, my name and your bus number.

You have already received a list of supplies that you will need for first grade, but there are a few additional items that I would like you to have. Please label everything with your name. 

  • 1 pack of 3 x 5 index cards
  • 1 plastic index card box (a small one)
  • 1 package of colored pencils
  • 1 clipboard
  • Washable markers
  • 2 Shiny Meade Folders with pockets


It will be fun getting to know each other.  If you have a favorite book and would like to share it, please bring that also.  I have some that I can’t wait to share with you.

If you have any questions or concerns you can reach me at home.  My home phone number is (609) 223-0165 and my e-mail address is rebecca.totaro@ww-p.org.   Enjoy the rest of your summer vacation!


                                                Mrs. Totaro
