• Back to School Letter

     Welcome to First Grade


    Dear Parents,

            I look forward to meeting all of you and helping your child meet the first grade standards.  I have high expectations for your child, as I am sure you do, and look forward to working with you to help your child meet his/her potential.


            I hope that you will attend Back to School night (TBA) where I will be able to give you information regarding about what to expect in first grade and answer any questions that you may have.  Until then, here is a brief summary of what you need to know to get your child started in first grade.


    ·        Your child should bring lunch and a snack each day.  If your child is buying hot lunch, he/she should still bring a snack.  It is a very long time until lunch when you are six.  If your child is buying hot lunch, they may pay for it in the morning before school.  To make it easier for you, payments may be made in advance and put into an account for your child.  All payments are to be made in the cafeteria.

    ·        Your child may bring a water bottle with a pop-top to keep on his/her desk. 

    ·        Your child should bring a backpack each day.   Please check it daily.  You wouldn’t believe the stuff that children store in there.

    ·        Friday is Spirit Day.  Your child should wear their school shirt or spirit colors (blue, black or white).  Also, on Friday we have an all school assembly in front of the MPR.

    ·        Monday’s and Friday’s are P.E. days, please have your child wear sneakers and comfortable clothing.


    ·        There will be no homework (except for math) until after Back to School Night, however, there are many forms and notices going home with your child so please check his/her backpack daily. 




    Please let me know if you can volunteer in the classroom.  I would like to start reading groups next week and need parent helpers to make this run smoothly. 

    Here’s to a great year full of learning, fun, respect and friendship. 

                                                 Mrs. Piovarcsik
