Welcome to Mrs. Albecker’s Class!
Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am very happy that I will be working with your child! First grade is a very exciting year, with tremendous growths that occur. This year in first grade, your child will continue to build upon and to practice literacy skills, math, and many other academic subjects. We will also participate in PE, music, and art. Twice a month, he/she will have a guidance lesson and a search lesson (extending thinking skills). Throughout each week, I will work towards making your child’s learning experience meaningful, with hope that a love of learning will last throughout your child’s years of schooling.
I have been at Sycolin Creek Elementary since it opened 14 years ago. Previously, I taught first grade in Sterling. Prior to those years, I was a first grade teacher, a reading/math specialist, and a third grade teacher. This will be my 35th year teaching children, but I continue to thoroughly enjoy this challenging yet highly rewarding work.
In August, we will be having two welcoming sessions. Back to School night will be Tuesday, August 24th @ 5:45 – 6:45. Our Open House will be Wednesday, August 25th @ 10:00 – 11:00. As we begin our time together, please know that I consider communication as a key to your child’s success. You may contact me by email at any time. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I truly look forward to a great year ahead and cannot wait to meet your new first grader!
