Take Home Folders:

Your child will have a take home folder that will go home and come back to school each day. This folder will contain important documents from the classroom and Maggie Cordova ES. Please remember to check this folder EVERY night and take out any papers that need to stay at home. Each side of the folder is labeled "take home" and "bring back." Please remember to send your child back to school with this folder EVERY DAY!

Homework Folders:

Your child will be given a homework folder at the start of each month and the folder will be due at the end of the month. Along with the daily homework sheets there will be a reading log to fill out. Your child is expected to spend about 5 minutes on their daily homework sheet and 10 minutes on reading each night! Homework is not meant to be frustrating! Instead, it is meant to be a review of skills taught in class each day. Spend time with your child doing homework each night! Your child will enjoy this time and love to show you how much they have learned in first grade! It is extremely important that your child returns their homework on the day it is due! Late homework will result in a lower grade.

Our Classroom Mission Statement:

The tweeting birds of Ms. Schneller's first grade class will do our best work every day, be respectful to others, and never stop learning. Our goal is to work together to be good leaders and positive role models for our school.

Your child's goal is to get a "3" on their class work assignments.
