Jamie Aponas' Classroom: Welcome to First Grade

Welcome to Team 1!

Welcome to Team 1! 

I am Miss Aponas and I am so excited to be your first grade teacher this year!  We are going to learn so many new things and go on some great adventures!  We will persevere and try our best. We will be kind to others and support one another. We will follow the cultural expectations and be safe, respectful and responsible.  I can't wait for a great year! As we say in the Salem School District, we are better together!
