Art Class

Our classroom art instruction is designed to increase student awareness of different kinds of art. It gives students a wide range of experiences and helps them to appreciate the art around them. Most importantly, it lets them know that there is no wrong way to do art. We will be focusing on some of the basic elements of art: line, shape, color, value, texture, form and space. We will also do a study of a few famous artists of long ago.

Welcome First Grade Families!

I am delighted to be your child's teacher this year. First grade will be a special time for your child with many new academic and social experiences. I invite you to participate as much as possible since children learn most effectively when parents and teachers work hand in hand. There are many ways you can help your child have a positive year:


First Grade Website: Please familiarize yourself with our website. You will find important information on many topics including:

Meeting Spot: It is important to designate an after school meeting place. It can be very overwhelming for first graders if they can't locate mom/dad/caregiver at the end of the day. Your meeting spot should be established and practiced before the 2nd day of school. In addition, make sure your child knows what to do if ever you’re not there. I recommend that you teach your child to wait with the other students by the fire exit if he/she is unable to find you at your meeting spot. There will be a teacher supervising that area to ensure your child’s safety until you arrive. Reinforce that your child should never walk home alone! 

 Parent Contact Information: Please complete this form and return it promptly. You will not be able to reach me by phone during the school day, so email is our best means of communication. I check for email messages in the afternoon (on busy days, this may not be until 5:00) and in the morning before school if time permits.
