1st Grade
I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying time with your family during this break. For now, I'm hoping that you continue to read each day for 30 minutes or more. You have all made such GREAT progress this year! Be creative and have fun :) 

I'm hoping to get a video of the the chick candling soon. I'll keep you posted on their progress. 

I would love to hear from each of you if you would like to email me :) I'll email you back, of course!

Take care and I hope to hear from you soon!

Mrs. Sampsell

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday break. We will get our classroom makeover starting around the second week in February. It is a bit of a laborious process as all of the first grade teachers will be moving to the switch rooms during this phase of construction in our building. I will be packing up the classroom this month in order to be ready for the temporary move.

Please check to make sure your student empties and returns their folder each day. Coats are necessary this time of the year in order for your student to enjoy recess outside each day. It tends to be quite cold during our first recess.

As always, please contact me if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's progress. Thank you for your continued support.

Please take a moment to watch our Back to School Night video before September 26th. It has information that will help to give you a better understanding of our classroom procedures, the first grade curriculum, special events, classroom management, technology resources and much more. I will have samples of the children's work available during our Back to School Night which is this Thursday, September 26th, from 6:00 until 6:30. I look forward to seeing you soon!

A Few Things:

Please check you child's blue, correspondence folder each evening for notes, graded work, make up work, etc. Help to make sure they have their folder in their backpack for school each day.

Please check with your student to make sure their scissors are in good working order or if they may need a new pair.

Notes regarding changes in dismissal and absences should be sent to the office, as well as, to me. I may not be able to check my email before your student is dismissed which can create unforeseen issues.

Please, remind you students that it is important to be at school every day unless they are ill and that they should be ready to learn each and every morning :)
