FIRST GRADE

2019-2020

 Miss Brennan

IMPORTANT: We no longer have access to IXL. However, please continue to assist your child with his/her math facts.

Over the next few days we are making adjustments to PowerSchool and your accounts may be glitchy. We ask you to please be patient during this time.

 

GYM DAYS ARE TUESDAYS AND FRIDAYS

 

JUST A FEW REMINDERS:

Please remember to bring a snack with you every day, even on half days.

The children are allowed to bring a water bottle to keep on their desk.

Please sign and return ALL tests the next day.

Thank you!

If you have any questions or concerns at any time please don’t hesitate to contact me.
