Parents and Families:
would like to introduce myself. My name
is Mrs. Debora O’Connor and I will have the pleasure of being your child’s
first grade teacher. First grade is a
big year in your child’s life. We will
have a wonderful year. There is so much
to learn. You will marvel at the growth
in your child, both academically and as a little person. A whole new world will open up for your child
as they begin to read and write. A sense
of independence and pride will emerge.
will be my job this year to create a safe, warm and nurturing environment for
learning. I hope to instill a love of learning and discovery within each
child. I will work my hardest to let all
the children grow to their fullest potential.
I always embrace each new year with as much excitement as the
children. I encourage each of you to
become a partner in your child’s learning.
Let them know you too are excited that they are now first graders.
will discuss our year’s curriculum and other particulars when I meet all of you
on Open School Night on Monday, Sept. 19th from 8:10pm-8:55pm. If you should have any questions or concerns
and need to contact me before Open School Night, please send a note in your
child’s folder or leave a phone message with the main office. My school email address is email@example.com.
try to have all supplies and paperwork sent in by Friday, September 9th. I will send reminder notices for any item
that may be missing. If your child will
be purchasing lunch, there are two ways you can pay for it. You will be given the opportunity by the food
service to pay monthly at www.mySchoolBucks.com (highly
recommended) or your child can bring their money daily in a wallet or envelope
clearly marked with their name. The cost of a lunch is $2.00. Our lunch hour is 10:45am-11:35am. We will be having snack each morning. Please remember to send a water bottle and
ONE healthy food snack daily.
a reminder that the school day begins at 8:25am, the first bell will ring at
8:20am. If your child is a walker or is
dropped off by car, please make sure that your child is in the cafeteria with
our class by 8:20am. I will pick them up
promptly and be to our classroom door by 8:25am. Dismissal will be at 2:50pm. We will leave through the main front doors
and be outside no later than 2:45pm. If
your child will be picked up by anyone other than a parent, I will need prior
notification in writing. Thank you.
am looking forward to our year together,
