Welcome to First Grade!!!
I apologize for the lateness of this letter, first and foremost. However, I would like to officially welcome you to room 223! I look forward to working with you and your child throughout the school year and to speaking with you at our Open House on Wednesday, September 7th, 2022! Until then, here is a little information that you may need.
Please send a healthy snack and drink with your child to school each day-we take a short break each morning at about 10:15, to refuel the children and tide them over until lunch at 12:20. Please take a moment to talk with your child about the lunch menu and what they will be having. We do our lunch orders first thing in the morning and they will need to know what to mark down when they come in, whether it be one of the school options or if they have brought a home lunch with them.
We at Fisk, provide all of the supplies that your child will need- however, new school supplies are part of the fun of coming back and being ready for school. You are welcome to send any special school supplies you may have bought for the brand new year. My only requirement is that the supplies fit inside your child’s desk neatly.
If your child is going home by any means other than his or her assigned bus, please use the Pick Up Patrol app to notify us of any changes. A note to me, and/or an email or phone call to the office are perfectly fine. I just need to be sure they are getting home safely to you every day!
