Dear First Grade Families,
Welcome to first grade! My name is Miss Lepore and I am very excited to be your teacher this year! I have been busy getting our classroom ready for the new school year. I can’t wait to meet you and begin a fun-filled year together.
Please allow me to share a little about myself with you. I have a Master of Arts in Teaching Degree from Rhode Island College. I started my teaching career as a part-time Second Grade teacher and Resource teacher at St. Pius X School in 2004. I was a full-time Resource teacher for 4 years and have taught First Grade for 7 years.
Our first grade adventure begins on Tuesday, September 5, 2017…the first day of school! I know you are going to love first grade. Please bring your Summer Reading Responses and school supplies with you on that day.
First grade is such a special year. I am excited to be a part of your learning! I look forward to a successful year!
