Welcome to First Grade!
It’s going to be an interesting and exciting year! I am thrilled to be teaching 1st grade again this year and am looking forward to many enriching experiences.
I realize that teaching is a privilege, as well as a tremendous responsibility. I will do my best this year to ensure that each student has a motivating and safe learning experience in the classroom. However, I cannot do this alone: I need parent help. We will be much more effective if we are partners in the learning process. It is my hope that each of you will encourage your child at home and keep communication open with me.
I ask that you pray that I will be able to fulfill my vocation as a Catholic School teacher to the best of my ability. I will pray for the students to mature into responsible, intelligent, and critically thinking children who live their faith “out loud” and are compassionate and considerate to everyone they meet. I will also put every effort into teaching them the skills they need to accomplish those goals.
Please take some time to look over our classroom procedure handbook under "Sharla Pfeifer's Docs" on my web page. Talk about it with your student and be sure to ask questions if you're not sure about how the classroom operates.
Don’t forget the Back-To-School Open House/Meet the Teacher Night on Tuesday, Aug.14th at 6:30 p.m.
It helps tremendously if you label their name on all supplies with permanent marker. (For some inexplicable reason, there are always supplies found on the floor! :)) For example, remove the glue sticks from the packaging and write their initials on the stick. You do not need to label individual crayons. When labeling dry erase and felt tip markers, please put a piece of clear tape over the name. This prevents the name from rubbing off during use.
Together we can make this an awesome year! I look forward to getting to know you this year.
