• Welcome to the wonderful world of first grade!  This year we will be working on improving our reading, sight words, phonics skills, and writing. We will also learn some new math skills like adding, subtracting, counting money, telling time, place value, shapes, bar graphs, tally charts, and measuring. We will also be learning social studies and science this year for a semester each. It is going to be a great learning experience!

    Teaching your child is a tremendous responsibility, and I will do my best to ensure that each student has a safe and motivating learning experience in this upcoming year. However, I cannot do this without your help.  We are partners in the learning process!  

    I believe that parent-teacher relationships are necessary for maximum school success.  Throughout the year I will communicate through my website, notes, telephone calls, emails, class Facebook page, and parent teacher conferences.  I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time.  You can call me at the school, send me a written note, or contact me via email.

    In Minneota Public Schools we show Viking Valor.  We act with respect, show honor, and meet high expectations in all areas of our school.

    I am so excited for this school year!  It's a great day to be a Viking!
