First Grade
.         Mrs. Verso

  • Welcome to First Grade!!
    The First Graders visited with Fr. Walden during Holy Week and presented him with an  Easter Card and Easter Basket with eggs the children decorated for him. They really enjoyed being able to spend a few minutes with him !

    As has been a long standing tradition at St Patrick School, the First Graders each  learned about the life of a saint who is special to them. Click on the link below to see their Saint Videos!
     Please note: I will be using the class website mainly for general information and announcements, you should check it and the school main page as information is updated frequently. 
     I will be using our Google Classroom for any time sensitive announcements and assignments.

    D.E.A.R. (Drop Everything and Read)
    Reading Bags
    Please change the books in your children's D.E.A.R. reading book bags each weekend. The bags will be sent home each Friday. Unfortunately my classroom library will not be accessible at this time for children's use, the children will be using these books throughout the week and new books should come in with your child each week on Monday mornings..

    Please also sharpen all your children's pencils, both colored and regular each  weekend. They will come home in their backpack. 

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at

    It is important to view the school homepage, our class webpage  and our Google Classroom Page daily as new information will be posted frequently.

    Please be sure your child knows how they are getting home from school each day. If there is a change in your child's normal plan, please update us with any changes on the Pick up Patrol website. If you've not yet signed up for this great resource please do so as soon as possible. This will eliminate the need to send in notes when there has been a change to your child's dismissal plan.
    Each day we will have afternoon snack, please send a small healthy snack and water for your child each day. You may also send your child with a refillable water bottle that they will be able to keep at their desk.If your child is bringing lunch from home, please be sure to pack their lunch and snack separately. 

    Please be sure that anything you send to school is clearly labeled with your child's name, particularly their School sweatshirts and sweaters. The children often take them off during Gym or recess and if they are not labeled we have no way of knowing which is theirs. 

    Our Special Schedule is as follows :
    Monday / Tuesday  Gym
    Please be sure your child comes to school wearing their gym uniform/sneakers 

    Wednesday - Art 
    Please be sure your child has their Sketch Pad, Art Folder and a Smock. The Smock should come in a Ziploc bag marked with your child's name as requested by the Art teacher. The sketch pad and folder will remain in school.

    Thursday - Library/Media
