Welcome to First Grade at New Boston Central School. I am thrilled to be welcoming so many outstanding children into our classroom.
I hope you have had an exciting summer, I sure did. One of my favorite pastimes is reading and I have been able to read so many books this summer. I bet you have also read some great books. During the first few days of school I would love to be able to share our favorite books with each other. In your welcome letter you will find a blank outline of a book cover. Please decorate your book cover with information about your favorite book - - be sure to include the book title and your name. I can’t wait to hear about all of the books that you have loved reading.
The only school supplies that you will need are a backpack and a pocket folder (binders are too big for our mailboxes and NBCS will provide all of your writing and art supplies). Your pocket folder and backpack will be used to bring papers to and from school. For the pocket folder, you can pick any design or color that you would like – your choice. We have found that the flat, heavy cardboard or plastic folders seem to be the most durable and will fit the best in your mailbox. Please label your backpack and folder with your first and last name.
Please bring your book cover with you on the first day of school, (September 5th).
I would love to meet you before school begins. Please feel free to drop into the classroom on Thursday, August 31, 2017 from 1:30 – 2:30. You will have a chance to see our new classroom and get reacquainted with friends.
I am sure you have many questions for me at this point. Bring your questions and your smiles with you.
I am looking forward to an outstanding year together.
**Mark your calendar: Back-to-School Night 9/19/17 (more details to come later).
