Welcome to First Grade!

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. 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.  

We will be using the app, Bloomz this year to communicate securely. All members have to be approved by me to access our page.  Only approved members will be able to see our class pictures and news. Bloomz is a app that works both on your smartphone as well as on your computer. You will receive quick updates and photos of class activities, be able to access our class calendar, and more. All in a private and secure environment.

I look forward to seeing everyone at Harmony's Open House on August 14th 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  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!
