Welcome to Mrs. Vasquez' 1st Grade Class!

Welcome to a new year at Sunridge! I am really looking forward to sharing the first grade experience with you and your child.

Returning to school is an exciting time for you and your child. It means new friends and new learning experiences in your child’s life. Success in these elementary school years will help determine attitudes that will stay with your child throughout a lifetime. I am positive that your child will have a successful rewarding year!

Over the summer it is important to prepare your child for what is to come. Here are a few things I would like you and your child to work on over the summer:

  • Students should practice adding and subtracting one and two digit numbers.

  • Students should practice reading fluency. Read with your child for 15 minutes everyday.

  • Students should set 3 new learning goals that they will work to accomplish in 1st grade

For my students:

I am so excited to have you in my class for first grade. We will work hard every day. We will make it a point to laugh a little when we learn, to enjoy what we do; to view each teachable moment as a gift. A gift that never loses value or relevance.

I will remind you often, the year ahead will bring challenges, inquiry, experiment, a bit of the unknown, growth, but most importantly, SUCCESS!

I will walk the entire path with you, never leading you astray…together we will learn that when you believe, you achieve…I BELIEVE, DO YOU?
