Dear Room 145 Parents and Guardians,


Wow!  What a wonderful first week of school we have had.  We have spent time learning all of the expectations for first grade. I am proud of the effort that all of the children have put into working and making this year successful so far.  We have a number of new changes that you need to know about.  I will go into more detail during our open house on September 12th but meanwhile I hope this answers some of your question/concerns. 


  • Lunchtime-Our lunchtime is 11:25-11:55.  This is a great time slot and the children do not seem to be asking for snack before or after so we will not have snack time. 
  • Resources-We have resource class everyday from 10:35-11:20.  Please dress accordingly when possible.  Monday-music, Tuesday (alternating weeks) Media Center, Wednesday-PE, Thursday-Art, Friday-Teacher Directed PE
  • Communication folders-the same blue folders that the children used last year have been ordered and are on the way to NBE.  As soon as they come I will begin to send home the behavior sheets, calendar, homework and any other papers in the folder.  I will send home a temporary folder until the blue folders come in. 
  • Recess-Our time slot for recess is from 2:30-3:00 on Tuesday and Thursdays.  This is a district/school decision and I cannot change the frequency or time of recess. 
  • Homework-Homework packets will go home on Monday and are due on Friday.  We will begin HW the week of Aug. 26th


Thank you all for your patience and support during these first few days.  I hope that you will all be able to join me for open house on Sept. 12th.                                                      


Mrs. Allen
