2 Welcome to First Grade… We are so glad to be working with you and your child this year! First grade is a year of exceptional growth! In first grade we work hard to foster a sense of independence. Your child is responsible for entering the classroom, unpacking and preparing their materials for the day. We hope to instill good work habits that your child will carry throughout their educational career and beyond! Please encourage your child to do their best each day! We promote a positive, safe and risk free learning environment in which all children are respected learners! It is important that students treat each other in a manner in which they would like to be treated. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions, comments or concerns. It is truly the partnership between parents and teachers that make children successful student Sincerely, Mrs. McGhee
