• Hello and welcome to room 104's webpage! This site is a great source to access inormation and tools to help your child succeed in 1st grade. This year, students will engage with curriculum that will challenge them to problem solve, think critically and creatively, and to take initiative in their own learning in order to master the common core state standards. I highly encourage you to discuss with your children what we are doing in the classroom, as much as your time allows you, to gain an understanding of their successes as well as their struggles occurring in the classroom. By partaking in these conversations with your child, you will gain valuable insight that can be used to further support their learning. If you believe it to be benefical for your child's learning to share any information you learn from your student at home, please contact me at cpetrella@emsd63.org . I look forward to partnering with you in your child's education.
