WELCOME Incoming First Graders of 2013-14
Welcome, welcome, welcome to Room 111! My name is Ms. Farmer and I am looking forward to providing a fun-filled year of learning and growing.
Parent and Child Letter to come!
You and your child should be getting a letter from me around the third week of August.
In the parent letter, you will have some forms to fill out and return with your child on the first day of school. One form is for transportation. This one is very important as we need to know if your child is a walker, goes to an afterschool program or takes the bus. If your child takes the bus, I need to know the number of the bus to put your child on at the end of the day (in the event that your child forgets or becomes unsure). A Bus Sticker will also be provided for you to attach to your child's backpack (just be sure to put the bus number on the tag).
No Class Supplies Needed!
There will be no class supply list coming to you this year as the District is providing all of the necessary supplies! (Of course, your child can always bring in their own special materials if they want).
Have Fun Decorating the Puzzle Piece!
Your child will also receive a letter with a puzzle piece. They can decorate the puzzle piece in any way that they choose. Just tape or glue a picture of your child to the back of the puzzle. If you don't have a picture which fits the puzzle piece, please don't worry. I can take a picture of your child in the classroom and attach it to the puzzle piece (just be sure to put your child's name on the back of the puzzle piece).
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me a firstname.lastname@example.org
I encourage any nervous or anxious students to contact me as well!
