Message to Parents


I am so very happy to welcome you all to my first grade class.  I am a a new teacher just out of college so I have tons of ideas and projects that I can't wait to have your children involved in.  I encourage any suggestions or comments about anything in my classroom.  I want to do my best to enrich your child's learning experience.  Not only while they are in my class but also when they go into other classes. 

I feel it is very important to have as much parent support in the classroom at all times.  I encourage parents to come visit and possibly participate in the learning experience.  I will be setting up times when parents can come in and help during reading time.  The parent will come in and read a story to a group of students while I take a few to the side to evaluate them on their reading skills.  I also have a few moms and a dad that have contacted me about being class parents.  They will be planning parties for the class and they will also be the first I contact when it is time for the class to go on field trips or if I just need extra help in the classroom.  If you would like to be apart of this group just contact me and I will add you to the list.  All are welcome, the more the better.

I truly want you and your children to feel like this is a second home.  So feel more than welcome to come in an visit at any time.  I am so excited about starting this year off. 

Please, contact me with any questions or concerns you might have.

See you all in class!!!

Ms. Bethany O'Donnell
