• Welcome to 1st grade!!

    First grade is an exciting time for parents, students, and teachers. I hope to make this school year one we will remember fondly. The days your child spends at school this year will be full of learning, but also full of excitement!! There will be opportunities to learn in many different ways. There will be time for hands-on exploration, experimentation, working alone, and working together in the various subject areas.

    In an effort to help your child stay organized here at school; I am trying to minimize items to be stored inside desks. Please keep all novelty items at home (fancy erasers, pencils, pens, markers, personal pencil sharpeners, etc.)

    If any questions, special needs, concerns, or problems come up through the school year that I should be aware of to help your student be successful in first grade, please let me know right away. I can be reached by phone at (623) 445-8243 or by email at sara.marano@dvusd.org
