Dear First Grade Families,
My name is Mrs. Day, and I am happy to be your child’s first grade teacher this year. I am excited to develop a strong and supportive learning team with you and your child. I believe that if we work together that we can help your child reach his or her goals.
Students will have homework Monday-Thursday. Homework will be due Friday morning. Students will also need to read 20 minutes each night and fill out a reading log. Please check your child’s homework folder daily to monitor his or her progress.
Will be Respectful
Stay on Task
Consequence procedure for not following the Palla PAWS:
Step 1: Student will receive a nonverbal reminder. I use a signal with my hand to remind them.
Step 2: Verbal reminder
Step 3: 5 minute time out and reflection on PAWS
Step 4: Teacher/student conference
Step 5: Parent contact
If a student continuously does not follow the Palla PAWS, then that student will be referred to administration
Benefits for following the Palla PAWS
I will be using an online program called ClassDojo to encourage important skills, such as working hard and participating. I will also use the program to communicate with you. We can instantly share messages, updates, and photos from class.
I would like all families to join me and sign up for ClassDojo. You can use ClassDojo on any device. It is available as a free app on iPhones and Androids. It can also be used from a computer, iPad, or Tablet at: www.classdojo.com. Please explore the site and let me know if you need help setting up your account.
Birthdays: Birthdays are celebrated on the last Friday of each month. If you would like to bring a small treat for your child’s birthday, please arrange this with me a week prior.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I look forward to working with you and your child this school year.
