Dear First Families,
Welcome! We have an exciting year ahead that will be filled with lots to explore, experience, and learn! I hope to be a guide and mentor to your child this year as they embark on a learning journey filled with fun, challenges, and many learning opportunities.
I am looking forward to meeting my friends on the first day of school! I also look forward to keeping the learning experience a joyful one- one of my goals as a teacher is to nurture a lifelong love of learning in my students.
One reason that I am so excited about first grade is that students develop and grow a lot over the course of one year. It is wonderful to watch them as they expand their knowledge and learn new things! So much goes on and we will be very busy all-year long! Each child will be progressing at his/her own rate, acquiring skills as he/she is developmentally ready. Maintaining each child's individuality and self-esteem, and building a secure foundation for future growth will always remain a priority in our classroom!
I love to have open communication with families since my students are my top priority. This year, you can be certain that I will work diligently to help them in any way possible. With that in mind, please feel free to contact me at any point if you have questions or concerns about something going on in the classroom or with your child specifically.
There are many ways that you may do this. You may call the school at (610) 696-8869 or e-mail me at
It is a great privilege and responsibility to be your child's first grade teacher, and I am looking forward to a fabulous learning journey this year! As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns!
See you soon!!
In Friendship, Tr. Michele (
Early dates to Remember:
Small class size allows Goshen Friends School teachers to get to know each student well. Teachers work in tandem with parents so that no child ever slips through the cracks.
