First Grade

We are off to a wonderful start in first grade! We have adjusted to the many changes that come with the transition from Kindergarten to First Grade and Mrs. Sheedy and I are so proud of how hard the students are working. We are focusing on EFFORT in all we do! Always trying and doing our best so we can be proud of our work.


We will continue with our 100 Book Challenge this month! First graders are encouraged to read as many books as they can on the assigned  list. This is optional (but highly encouraged). Students will earn extra button badges for their hard work in practicing reading. 

This month first grade students will be completing a special family Christmas project. They will be writing about what Christmas means to their family! 

FALL/WINTER Uniform is now in effect! Please make sure your child has their sweater EVERY DAY as well as sweatshirt and sweatpants on Thursday for PE! Thank you! 

Important Reminders for the school year:
  • Please make sure your child has a HEALTHY snack packed for school.
  • Please make sure your child has their sweater every Friday for Mass.
  • Anticipated Absence: When an absence is anticipated, the parent must submit a written note to the classroom teacher with an explanation and dates of absence.  This note is forwarded to the Principal.  No assignments will be given to the students prior to their planned absence. The student is responsible to request make up work upon return.  The student is required to have completed all missed assignments and tests within three days of return for an extended absence unless otherwise specified by the classroom teacher.  The classroom teacher, in consultation with the Principal, may adjust this requirement if extenuating circumstances warrant this. Parents are strongly urged to plan family trips and vacation during school holidays and summer vacation. Please consult the school calendar to determine these days.  The importance or regular attendance and punctuality is reflected in academic achievement.
