First Day of 1st Grade

Dear 1st Grade Parents & Guardians,

The first day of 1st grade is August 20th. In the past, 1st graders would meet their teachers in a one-on-one or small group appointment on the first day of school. Since individual beginning of the year testing is no longer required, 1st graders will begin school the same day as 2nd-6th grade.

In order to help our 1st graders better transition back to school without a one-on-one meeting, we have a helpful video that explains what your child can expect on their first day of school.  This video can be accessed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TgjkMCC8-E&t=151s.

Please take the time to watch this video from beginning to end with your child before the first day of school.

We would also like to invite you to bring your 1st grader to Back to School Night to meet their teacher and visit their classroom. Our Back to School Night will be held on Monday, August 19th. Our school business meeting will be held at 4:00in the gym followed by an open house from 4:30-6:00.

We hope to see you there!
