I look forward to meeting you to discuss your child's progress in first grade. Please sign up for one time slot with your child's name and your name in the "comments" column. SCHOOL GETS OUT EARLY (12:30pm) ON most CONFERENCE DAYS, except Tuesday, when dismissal is at 1:28. LUNCH IS "OPTIONAL," unless students attend STAR. You may want to send an extra snack, for students to eat at recess, because the students get quite hungry waiting the extra half hour to eat! (Lunch is normally at 12 noon.)
KINDLY CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW TO SIGN UP
Room 1 is off to a great start this year! I am delighted to be working with such bright, wonderful children! We are going to be learning many new and amazing things, and have fun doing so.
On this website you will find information that will help you understand your child's first grade experience. I look forward to helping your children build foundational skills to help them become life-long learners.
For any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can call Fairburn (310.470.1344) and leave a message. I will return your call/ email as soon as possible.
Kindly continue to bring your green folders & backpacks to class daily!
Friday is the day to wear your Fairburn T-Shirt. Fairware tees & wristbands are on sale on Friday afternoons.
WE LOVE TO LEARN!!
Daily pick up for non-STAR students will be on the yard, near the girls' bathrooms. PLEASE be sure I acknowledge that you and your child are leaving, and check you off on the class roster.
Kindly check your child's homework folder daily for daily homework.
