Welcome to First Grade

A New School Year

A new school year

is about to begin,

And we're in it together-

Through thick and thin!


I'm glad you're on my team

And I think we'll have fun,

Laughing and learning

To get the job done!

As the 2016-2017 school year begins I would like to welcome all my students AND  parents to 1A.  Together we are a TEAM and each of us must work together to make this a successful year for our children.  If any parent has a question or concern please email me, call the school, send in a note.  I promise to respond to you A.S.A.P.! I am asking that parents do NOT come to the classroom first thing in the morning.  Please understand this is the busiest, craziest time of the day.  My students need my attention, and direction in the morning to ensure that our day begins smoothly.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in advance!!!:)

Mrs. Allen
