Welcome to First Grade Newsletter

August 24, 2017


Dear Parents,

Welcome to First Grade! We are so excited to meet all of you on Monday.

To make the first day of school run smoothly for your kids we have a couple things to go over in terms of school supplies, uniforms for the week, and information needed from you.

First, we hope everyone received the school supply list in the schools Summer mailer. If not, please visit the school website, sta-sd.org, and scroll to the bottom of the page. There you can choose forms and print one from home. It would be very helpful if your child came prepared with their pencil boxes filled with four sharpened pencils, markers, one box of crayons, scissors, and one glue stick. On the list are three pocket folders. Let them decide which one they want to use for homework, classwork, and portfolio. We will take care of the names, but giving them a chance to decide from home will make it easier in the morning. Everything else on the list we will collect for their future use.

Not on the school supply list is a water bottle for class use. Each child can bring a water bottle that they can place on their desk and use throughout the day.

Everything you need to know about the uniform is in the school handbook, also on our website. Below is the schedule for the week:

–  Monday- Regular Uniform

–  Tuesday & Thursday- PE Uniforms

–  Wednesday-Regular Uniform

–  Friday-Half Day/ Dress Up Uniform

Finally, we need your children’s birthday. Please email us back with the date as soon as possible.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us through our emails. Thanks for all your help and we look forward to seeing you Monday!
