YAY!! Welcome to First Grade (my most favorite grade!) I am SO excited to be back in First Grade this year!
We are going to have a year filled with fun, love, laughs, and learning.
A little background about me:
My name is Mrs. Murphy, I have been teaching at Holman for 5 years. Of those 5 years I have been a first grade teacher, with the exception of last year when I taught Kindergarten due to an influx of students. I am ecstatic to be back in first grade. The amount of growth first graders make is truly remarkable (just wait and see!). To the families I had the pleasure of working with last year, I'm so happy to be with you and your child for another year- I feel so lucky!(Also, I worked hard to transform my room back into a first grade room so your child will feel like they are walking into a brand new room this year, we have big kid desks, a new, larger library, and all my first grade games and toys out and ready to be used again!) To my new families that I have not yet had the priviledge of meeting, I cannot wait to get to know you and form a bond to help make this year unforgettable for you and your child.
As some of you may know I had my first child toward the end of last year and will be out on maternity leave until the middle of November. Ms. Brenna Doherty will be a wonderful replacement for me until I return. Rest assured, knowing that I have worked closely with Ms. Doherty, that she will kick off the school year with much excitement and enthusiasm! We have worked to make this a smooth and seamless transition for you and your child. You can reach Ms. Doherty at email@example.com with any questions or concerns you may have during the school year. With that being said, I’m hoping to pop in during the fall to visit the class and introduce myself as well (and baby Alaina too!)I wish you all the best for a fun-filled beginning of first grade and I am excited to return in November.Sincerely,Mrs. Murphy
All supplies your child may need this year will be provided! :)
As always, I like to keep our lines of communication fully open- please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns that may arise during the school year: firstname.lastname@example.org
