Welcome to First Grade
Welcome to First Grade!!There are eight first grade classrooms at Griffith Elementary School. Each classroom has a highly qualified teacher who is dedicated to your child's learning.In first grade, students are forming lasting friendships with classmates. They are learning to be responsible with their assignments. First graders are continuing to build on the knowledge they have learned in kindergarten. Their teachers will encourage them to read, write and learn this school year.
The learning process is one that involves three parties: the student, the parents and their teachers. Working together as a team with your child's teacher will show your child that education is important and that you support your child and his teacher in his learning.
Griffith Elementary school wants to let you and your child know that attendance is a must (AIM). Being here at school is an important, but please remember when your child has a fever, stomach bug or diarrhea they cannot return to school till they have been free of the symptoms for 24 hours. The first grade teachers would like to welcome you into their classrooms and look forward to having a wonderful year of learning with you and your child.
We would like to encourage you to read with your child each day for at least 20 minutes. The more you read with your child the better their reading and comprehension will become.
