Hello Parents,
I’m really excited to tell you our class will be using an app called Bloomz to simplify how we communicate with you and keep you in the know of what your child is doing while under our care. Get ready to see:
·         Weekly updates on what your child is doing and learning
  • Photos from the day or specific activities with a 1 click download option on your desktop
·         Invitation requests to events/field trips
·         Volunteer requests and ability to sign up right in the app
·         Parent Teacher Conference signups
·         And more…
Bloomz even has a messaging feature so you can instantly message me.  

Imagine having access to all these in one place, right on your mobile devices or on the web!

Please log on to or download the Bloomz app on your android or iPhone.  Our access code is MSXKKJ.  

One great feature about Bloomz is all members have to be approved my me.  Only approved members will be able to see our class pictures and news.

Let’s connect on Bloomz!

Welcome Back!

Welcome to First Grade! I hope you and your family had a fabulous summer and are excited to start the new school year. This is our classroom blog. I will update our blog with important information including what we are learning, important dates, pictures of our classroom adventures, and other school news. Take some time to explore our blog before school starts.  Parents also check out the homework, FAQ, and school wide food policy tabs for your information. 

I look forward to seeing everyone at Harmony's Open House on August 15th from 5-7 pm. Please bring your child’s school supplies and paperwork to our open house. You will find a list of our school supplies here: Harmony Supply Lists  You will need to order some or all of your school supplies from edukits.  No need to label any of your child's supplies.  I will label everything afterwards. First Graders will need to bring their own backpacks this year (no wheels please).  Thanks!
