Welcome to the Wonderful World of First Grade!

Welcome to first grade at Chebanse Elementary School! I am looking forward to teaching my ninth year of first grade!
I am anxious for our "team approach" towards your child's education. We all have the same goal - for your child to be happy, challenged,comfortable, and secure at school. We need to work together in order for your child to reach maximum success. I am asking that you please review things we learned at school on a daily basis. This means looking at your child's papers in the purple folder each night, signing it, and returning it the following school day. Also, please be sure to read our weekly Friday newsletter as it tells you what we are learning in class and dates of upcoming events.
Please mark your calendars:
Tuesday, August 19 - first day of school (full day!)
Monday, September 1 - no school (Labor Day)
Wednesday, September 3 - open house
Friday, September 12 - early dismissal at 11:15 (SIP day)
Tuesday, September 23 - picture day
I'll see you on August 19!
