It was a pleasure to see all of you at Meet the Teacher night! We love seeing all the new bright, shining faces that will be part of 1st grade each year!
Our grade level weekly updates will be posted to the First Grade page of the LPS website. The site is currently being updated and streamlined. You will find weekly updates each week under the “News Feed” tab. You will also find helpful resources for encouraging your child’s success in first grade. Eventually, homework will be posted on our website. We will discuss this more in depth at curriculum night.
I am always in need of helping hands in the classroom (or projects you can complete at home). If you are wanting to help please send me an email to let me know. Please make sure to complete a servant leader packet.
