Anderson, Rebecca

Welcome to Ms. Anderson's

First Grade Classroom!

We are having an exciting year in first grade at Knollwood School! Our days are very busy and full of many learning experiences. I would like to give you some helpful information about our daily routines and procedures.

School Times/ Dismissal- Our normal school day starts at 9:00 am and ends at 3:15 pm. If you plan to make changes to your child's dismissal procedure, please send in a note so that we can all be prepared. If you know in advance that your child is going to be absent from school, please send in a note. 

Communication / Notices- Communication is a key component to a successful parent-teacher relationship. I encourage you to contact me at any time if you ever have any questions or concerns. Please feel free to email, call or simply write me a note.

Homework- Homework is assigned Monday through Thursday. Everyday your child will take home their "Green Homework folder". Please check this folder each day to ensure that no important information is missed. It will contain important announcements, homework assignments, and completed work that needs to be removed. It is very important that your child bring this folder back to school each day. This will help create a routine, continue communication and enhance the "Home/ School Connection". Please feel free to use this folder as a way to communicate with me.

Snack/ Lunch- We will have a snack every day around 10:30. You may send in something small and healthy for your child to eat. Please note that we have several children in our class that have an allergy to nuts. If at all possible, please try to limit snacks containing nuts. If your child is buying lunch or needs to add money to their lunch account, please send it in an envelope labeled with their name and room number.

Specials- We have gym on Tuesday. Sneakers need to be worn on gym days. Library books need to be returned on Wednesday.

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Thank you for all of your help!
