Welcome to Ms. Dumser's First Grade Class Website!
am delighted to have your child in my class this year. I am looking forward to
a very successful year and I know you are too. I have high expectations for
your child and I will do all that I can to help your child achieve those
will be my fourth year teaching for Washingtonville Central School District. I
have experience in both the primary and intermediate grades. I myself graduated
from Round Hill Elementary School in 1995.
Friday your child will come home with a homework packet that includes ELA
practice; homework will be due the following Friday. Along with the homework
packet, you will receive a newsletter informing you of the skills that were
taught that week and any important events that may be taking place. Attached to
the packet will be a reading log. Students are expected to read Monday through
Thursday on a weekly basis. Students will receive math homework nightly, which
will be expected to return back to class the following morning. Please be sure
to check your child’s take home folder for important papers and homework
assignments. Students are responsible for returning their take home folders on
a daily basis.
help promote a positive learning environment our class will be using ClassDojo
to monitor class behavior. For those of you who have provided the school with
an email address an invitation to logon has been sent to you via email. An
additional hard copy of the invitation will go home as well. ClassDojo allows
parents to track their child’s behavior on a daily basis. This will be very
motivating for your child, for they have many opportunities to receive points
for positive behavior. At the end of each month students with the highest points
will be rewarded.
