Hello My Name Is
Welcome to Minnie Ruffin Elementary 1st Grade!
Hello, my name is Mrs. Jason and I will be your child's 1st grade teacher. I am thrilled to have the chance to work with you and your child. There is so much that we do in first grade. We will be building our reading, writing and math skills tremendously. We also touch on basic concepts in Social Studies and Science. Our basis is on phonics and reading. You will be amazed at just much your child will grow this year.
A few reminders to ensure continued success through the remainder of the school year:
- Please check your child's BLACK BINDER every night. There you will find word list, study guides, test papers and homework. It is very important that your child review and complete all the homework assigned. All homework given is just a review of what was taught in class. Homework is given Monday-Thursday. Please be sure to check homework and sign their study guide every night.
- Test papers and conduct sheets go home every Wednesday. Please go over your child's tests and conduct grade. When you receive these papers, please review your child's grades, sign the front page and return all of the papers the next day. If papers are not returned, I will discontinue sending your child's papers and you will need to view them at school.
- Please continue to practice basic addition and subtraction facts with your child.
- REMEMBER TO HAVE YOUR CHILD READ!
I am unable to meet with parents in the morning when students are entering the classroom or during instructional time, as this takes away from valuable instructional time. If you would like to schedule a conference, please feel free to call the school to schedule a time with the school counselor. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please feel free to contact me after school at 318-322-3447, ext. 4607 or by email:firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for all you do.
