Grade 1

Week of Sept. 12 – 16

Hi Grade One Families,

We made it through the first week of school! Woo! The students did a wonderful job in their first week of Grade One! So many “firsts” to navigate…lockers, buddies, Assembly, Mass, and changing for PE to name some of the highlights. We have loved getting to know your children so far and are looking forward to growing together this year!

Thank you so much for sending in the school supplies, birthday pictures, forms and more! It’s a busy start to the year and we truly appreciate all that you do.

We would like to thank Mr. John Ren for taking on the job of Grade One homeroom parent this year! He will be helping us with some preparation and organization of events throughout this school year. We will be reaching out for help from volunteers at various times this year and look forward to your support as we work together to have a wonderful Grade One year!
