Parent Info

Welcome new parents! I am excited to begin a new year of learning with your child! I can't wait to meet all of you and hope that you will use this online resource often. This blog is used to communicate and show you (as well as other family members) what is happening in our classroom. I also use it to highlight important information and events. Anything I post on the blog will most likely appear in our weekly first grade newsletter, First Grade Flash.Other important parent information such as my parent handbook is available on my class website which is setup at You can access this site by clicking on the apple on the right hand sidebar. The supply list for the coming year is posted on the website so you can have your child prepared for first grade on the first day of school! You will also find the weekly newsletters posted on that site as well once school starts. Classroom pictures, student links, and information about me can also be found on this website. It is an information portal!


I also keep you informed of what's happening in room 37 by using my classroom Facebook and Twitter account. I take lots of pictures and videos throughout the year and you can see them on here and on those two sites. The videos I record are usually uploaded to our classroom YouTube account. All three of these links are also on the right hand sidebar. Be sure to check them out and follow us!


I would love for you (or your new first grader) to leave a comment so I can see who has checked the blog out! I LOVE blogging but it's great to know that someone's out there! See you soon!
