Welcome to First Grade with Mrs. Galvin and Mrs. Brennan!
The Jackson School District will be CLOSED beginning Monday, March 16th until further notice.
Beginning on Monday, 3/16, ALL students will participate in Remote Learning.
Remote learning is a set of online lesson plans that will be shared with students on Monday. You will have an option to print a reading log from it and possibly other worksheets. You do not have to print things, but are welcome to write assignments in the compostion book that was sent home on Friday. We will be collecting ALL work and compostion books when we return to school. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions about the assignments.
On Monday, March 30th, students will be receiving a new set of Remote Lesson Plans which will be for 8 days and will last until Spring Break. The Remote Plans will be available on this Teacher Class Page and will be sent out on Class Dojo on Monday, 3/30 in the morning.

FIRST GRADE SUPPLIES:
The school supplies each student with a blue homework folder, pencils, erasers, crayons, highlighters, scissors and glue sticks. Here are some additional supplies that are OPTIONAL and may enhance your child's first grade experience:
~ lunch box
~ "HARD PLASTIC" pencil box
~ a few extra yellow sharpened #2 pencils
~ LARGE glue stick
~ box of tissues for the classroom
~ container of disinfectant wipes for the classroom
Each student has a blue homework folder that SHOULD come home each night. Students generally have homework Monday through Thursday nights. Please check the folder daily for homework and/or notices. Once homework begins your child will have a homework chart in the classroom. Each night they complete ALL parts of their homework they receive a sticker on their chart. Once it is filled they will earn a special treat!
Each month your child will receive a calendar and it can be found in the back of their blue homework folder. Please check it daily as it will indicate whether your child earned a smile, frown, or required reminders for their behavior each day. The calendar will also have important dates noted such as class parties, picture day, no school days, early dismissal days, spirit wear days, etc...
"ROCK STAR of the Week"!
During the school year students will have the opportunity to EARN "Rock Star of the Week" and will have their poster on display and enjoy special privileges during the week!
Beginning on Monday, 9/16 , students will bring home a sight word reading race. Please time your child and record how long it takes for them to read all of the sight words. Also, please initial next to each night. The goal is for students to read the words quicker each night. Thank you for your support!
Thank you for your cooperation and as always if you should have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
