Mrs. Fitzgerald - Welcome to First Grade

  • Welcome To First Grade

    First Grade  at Hamlin Park School promises to be a fun-filled extension your child's school career. I am  looking forward to getting to know you and your children. Our goal is to start your child on a lifelong path of learning. Together we can prepare them for the challenges they will face as they move from grade to grade.

    Our door is always open. Please stop by and say hello. We must keep the lines of communication open between us. You have been your child's first teacher. We hope to build on the foundation you have set. Please keep us informed of any significant events in your child's life. We hope to be your partners in the education process.

    The single most important thing you can do to help your child succeed in school is to let them know that you value the work they do in school. Make sure they do their homework. Read with them every night. Check their backpacks. Talk about what happened during the day. Let them know that you expect them to do their best every day and to be respectful of those around them.

    We will read, write , count and experiment together. We will master strategies to learn new words and comprehend what we read. We will become addition experts and explore numbers as we measure and compare things. We will begin to express our ideas in written form.

    On this website you will have access to files and links which will help you understand what First Grade is all about, along with ideas you can use with your child at home.

    There is no limit to what your child can accomplish this year! I am  honored to be given the opportunity to help them on this journey.
