Dear First Grade Parents, 

Welcome back to school! This will be an exciting year for your children. My name is Mrs. Seredvick and I am very thrilled to be your child’s first grade teacher. As an experienced educator, I understand the importance of a solid educational foundation. I look forward to working with you to make this a wonderful school year for your children. My background includes six years as a Catholic school teacher in both Pre-K and second grade classes and more than ten years in a variety of long-term public school substitute assignments, including first grade. This past year I served as a reading and math support teacher here at Hoboken Catholic Academy, working with grades one, two, four and five.

Our classroom is in Modular 1, which is located just outside the building near the gym entrance. Miss Aggie, who was previously stationed in the main hallway, will now be with us to escort children into and out of the main building as needed. Children will join me in front of the stage in the gym on the first day of school for AM Assembly and the Opening Day Prayer Service. Parents are invited to attend the prayer service as well as Mass at 10:00 AM on Friday in St. Ann Church. 

First graders will have time for a small healthy snack every morning. No snacks containing peanuts are permitted as we are a peanut free school. Please do not use glass bottles or containers for drinks or snacks.

Gym class will be every Tuesday. Your child should wear their gym suit and sneakers to school on this day.

I would like to remind you to have your child continue to practice the summer word list that they received from their kindergarten teacher this past June. Attached you will find a copy of the supply list that was sent home in June. Please send cash or a check in the amount of $40.00 payable to Hoboken Catholic Academy in an envelope labeled with your child’s name and grade. It will be helpful if all of your child’s belongings are labeled with their name.            

These first days of school will be very exciting as the students get familiar with their new surroundings and classmates. I am here to help you and your children transition into First Grade as smoothly as possible. I look forward to meeting you all at Back to School Night on September 18th. I am so excited to start our year of learning, sharing, and exploring together!

 

                                                                                    Sincerely,

                                                                                    Mrs. Seredvick
