Welcome to Mrs. McDonald's 1st Grade Class!

Welcome to First Grade!
 
My name is Amanda McDonald. I have been teaching first grade for 11 years.
 
My awesome husband Andy and I have two beautiful girls. Ambergis is 14 years old and will be in 9th grade. Shelby is 13 years old and will be in the 8th grade.
 
When I am not teaching I love being outside, spending lots of time with my family and working out.
 
I am so excited about having your child in my classroom. We will be learning a lot this year and having fun!
 
 My conference period is 10:00-10:50. If you would like to meet with me please call to schedule an appointment.
 
Your child may bring a water bottle to school.  Please make sure it has a sucking mechanism to prevent spills.  Please have your child bring a healthy snack to school. Some suggestions for a healthy snack: cheese stick, pretzels, fruit, carrot sticks, goldfish, etc.  We will eat snack in the afternoon. 
Do not send junk food (chips or cookies) or food that requires a spoon!
 
Every Monday your child will come home with a  folder. In this folder you will find a weekly newsletter about what we are learning in class. You will also find a spelling list including the spelling rule for the week.  You may or may not have math homework. 
 
Please sign behavior calendar each night.  Please record all books read on reading log and initial each night.  Students having their behavior calendar and reading log signed will receive stickers.
