Hello First Graders and Families,
I hope that you are enjoying these beautiful summer days. I am excited about September because I will be your first grade teacher at Greenbrook School ! I live in nearby Belle Mead with my husband and two daughters, Krista and Jenna. We like to spend time at the beach and on the water in our little sailboat. I read lots of books in the summer-- mostly stories about families, interesting people and places I’d like to visit someday. I love music and movies, swimming, riding my bike, all kinds of animals (especially bunnies and dogs) and ice cream !
I am wondering about you… are you a soccer player, an artist or maybe a dancer? What kinds of games and books do you like? Do you have a pet or any brothers or sisters? I have a lot to learn about you. We will get to know each other, work hard and have fun every day. I know that you are excited to see our classroom and to meet some new friends. School starts on Thursday Sept. 3 at 8:55 a.m. It is a full day with dismissal at 3:25 p.m.
Students will need these things everyday:
- A small, healthy snack and water bottle
- Lunch--bring or buy
- A backpack
- Sneakers (for gym and recess)
First graders need the supplies that are listed below. Be sure to label the notebooks and folders and bring them to school as soon as possible. All other items will be shared and pencil cases are not needed.
4 spiral notebooks
12 #2 sharpened pencils
1 marble composition notebook
2 pink erasers
1 2-pocket folder
4 glue sticks
1 box markers (optional)
I am excited to get started!
