Welcome to First Grade!


First grade is such an important part of your child's education.  We know you will be amazed at the amount of growth your child will experience throughout this school year.  

As a team, we are so excited to see what the 2018-2019 school year has to hold for this sweet group of students!  We feel that it is a great honor to be teaching at the BESt school in the parish. We take the responsibility of spending our day with your babies very seriously.  We hope to work with you as a team, to ensure both a positive and successful school year for all of our students! Thank you for this opportunity!

First Grade News: 

Please be sure to check your childs red folder each day for any notes, conduct, special dates or school news.

Please review and sign your childs blue folder each week!  This folder will only come home on Tuesdays and will need to be returned the following day. This folder will contain graded work that your child has completed the previous week.

Be sure to complete homework with your child.  This work is meant to enrich and in some cases help to master a concept that your child may be struggling with during our lesson that day. This work is not graded but is still very important.
