Hello First Grade Parents, 

It was great seeing most of you at back-to-school night last week! I hope you found it to be informative and that you were able to get all your questions answered. Please feel free to call me if any clarification is needed. I feel so blessed to be your child’s teacher. I can already tell this is an amazing class and that we have an amazing year to look forward to! Everyone seems to be making friends and adjusting well to their new environment/routines. My goal is to make sure that your child is able to learn and grow as much as possible this year, while receiving the encouragement and support that they deserve. 

Ms. Watson
