Welcome to First Grade!

Please refer to this page for information about First Grade.

The information found under Mrs. Graves' students pertains to current first graders! (click on the arrow next to grade 1 in class pages)

Dismissal Procedure:  Classes will head outside promptly at 2:50p.m. Classes will be lined up like they do each morning in front of the school. They will be facing the playground.  Parents will park their vehicles in the parking lot and cross driveway to wait in front of the playground fence area for their child/children. The children will be dismissed by their classroom teacher.  At 3:00p.m., the bus children go to the teacher on bus duty and the rest of the children will be sent to After School Care to wait for parent pickup.  Parents will be charged a fee accordingly by ASC.

Student of the Week: The students will each have an opportunity to be student of the week. A poster will be sent home for them to complete along with a bag that they can fill with some special things they would like to show the class. This is a great way for the students to learn more about one another. The students can bring in their favorite book and I will read it during the week!

Take Home Folders: The students have a folder to make home/school communication easier. Please check these folders daily.

Homework: The students will receive homework Monday night through Thursday night. This will be located on the return to school side of their folder. Please check the folder with your child daily. Complete and return homework the next day!

Attendance: If your child is going to be absent please call the main office. Please let me know if you would like to pick up your child’s make up work. I will send work home with a sibling whenever possible. The student will have one day for each day they were out to complete the work (ie: absent for 2 days, 2 days to finish work).

Lunch Envelopes: Lunch envelopes are sent home on Tuesday or Wednesday. Please return them in Friday for the following week. Lunch is $3 and includes milk. Milk alone is $ .50. If your child is out on Friday and they plan on buying the following week, please call Mrs. Anderson, in the main office, to add them to the lunch count. Money can be sent in with the child when they return to school.
