Welcome to Mrs. Venable’s First Grade class! I’m excited about the opportunity to get to know you and your child. I have been teaching here at CHE for8 years and I am looking forward to a happy and productive school year.
During this school year we will focus on the following curriculum areas: English and Language Arts (Reading), Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science.
Students are asked to bring the items on the supply list to school by Friday, August 12, 2011.
Your child will always have a Homework Packet consisting of skills taught throughout the week. The scheduled assignments and Spelling Words will also be written inside of your child’s Agenda Planner each week. The Homework Packet will be due each Friday. In addition, to the Homework Packet I encourage you to read to or with your child each day. During the first week of school and throughout the school year, your child will receive a list of Sight Words to practice. Please assist your child with at least 10 sight words daily until he/she has mastered those words.
My grading policy is located in the First Grade syllabus. I also give credit for class work and homework.
Upcoming school events will be given to your child in their Thursday courier.
Studies show that parental involvement in a child’s education is one of the strongest indicators of student achievement. Please try to make it a priority this year to attend as many school-sponsored events as possible.
If you have any questions or concerns or if you would like to visit our classroom, schedule a conference, or volunteer to help out, you can contact me at 678-676-1200. The best times to reach me are after school hours (2:30) or before school hours from 7:20 am-7:45 am.
Let’s work together to make this the best year ever!
