I have enjoyed getting to know your boys this past week and I am looking forward to meeting with you on Parent Night (Aug 29). Each week I will update the website, and the update will be sent to you each Monday by email. I will include what we are covering in class, spelling notes, important dates, and reminders. Please be sure to read the update each week for important information. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me. I am looking forward to a great year in first grade! 

Have a wonderful week!
