Mrs. Wright's 1st Grade

Dear First Grade Student,


     Hi!  I am Mrs. Wright and I am so excited that you are going to be in my class this year for first grade!  Before school starts I wanted to let you know a little bit about me and give you some important information about school starting. First, this is my fourth year at Lake Elementary School and I have been teaching elementary school for 19 years!  I love teaching and love to make learning fun and exciting! I feel blessed to be working at Lake Elementary School and I can’t wait to see what this year will be like with you in my class!

     In addition to being a teacher, I am also a wife, a mom, and almost a grandma!  My husband, Mr. Wright, is a contractor and we have been married almost 31 years!  I have two sons, Jimmy and Danny, and two daughter-in-laws, Katy and Holly! I love my family and enjoy spending time with them! We love to laugh together! Our family is going through big changes right now as my son Danny and his wife Holly just moved to Seattle this week. My son Jimmy and his wife Katy are expecting a baby the first week of school--yes, the first week of school which might mean our class has a substitute one day.

     Now, I know you might be getting a little nervous about starting a new school year with a new teacher but please know that I can’t wait to get started on our year together!  Our theme for the year is “OWLS” which stands for Outstanding Wise Learners. We want to be Outstanding Wise Learners in our reading, writing, math, and as we learn about things like weather, birds, all kinds animal families, the rainforest, and the continents just to name a few! We also want to be Outstanding Wise Learners as we grow together in our relationships with each other.

    The first day of school is on Wednesday, August 9.  We will do some fun things to help us get to know each other better and help you get familiar with our classroom.  Our day will end at 2:55. 

     Well, that’s it for now!  Enjoy the rest of your summer!  And please know that I can’t wait until August 9, when we start our adventure as OWLS-Outstanding Wise Learners!


Love,   Mrs. Wright
