Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am looking forward to a great year with your child. First grade is an important year. Success in the upper grades is directly linked to mastery of basic facts and concepts taught in the early grades. We will be working hard on gaining a better understanding of phonics, vocabulary, reading and reading strategies for comprehension, basic math facts and concepts, and so much more. Other key objectives will be demonstrating respect and gaining responsibility and independence. Your role in your child's education is crucial. Please partner with me to build a strong foundation of learning that will help your child soar through the following years.

Investigate the links under the Main Menu. You will find valuable information regarding upcoming events, homework, and activities that reinforce our lessons and provide help for students at home.

We will be having a brief working snack time. Please send in nutritious snacks: fruit, vegetables, yogurt, cheese,... but no nuts, please.

 I anticipate forming a strong partnership to support your child's success. Please contact me with any questions you might have. Reach me by email at  If you prefer to leave a voicemail, my extension is 2304.  I will get back to you at my earliest opportunity.



Eileen Siss
