Dear First Grade Parents,

Welcome to first grade! Mrs. Sheedy and I are very excited to have your child in our class this year! First grade is a pivotal year to learn independence and responsibility. We will develop a deeper love for Christ, share many laughs, have fun, and most importantly learn new things! Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have. We look forward to meeting you all at the Open House and Back to School Night!

Pacem et Benedictiones – Peace and Blessings,

Miss Marchi and Mrs. Sheedy
