Welcome to Ms. Austin's First Grade Class page!


Happy Birthday!
View this Note

We LOVE to celebrate birthdays with healthy snacks (please refer to the "Choosing Better Snacks" handout in your back to school folder) at Central Blvd! If you wish to send in a special snack for your child's special day please send a note in 2-3 days prior. If your child has a summer birthday they will have a special day set aside to celebrate in June.

If you would like your child to refrain from joining in any of this year's celebrations please notify me as soon as possible.

Messages are able to be sent to the whole class which is helpful if a homework assignment changes or there is an important announcement to share. I might also text you pictures or information individually as well. I can receive replies on the individual portion of the app. so I encourage you all to sign up! *CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP!*

Froggy, the first grader schedule

Froggy the First Grade Schedule:

Your child will have the opportunity to bring home our class mascot for a weekend visit this year. Please review the date in which your child will bring Froggy home. They will bring home a notebook to document their journey. You can take photographs or include illustrations of what you did during the time you had together. I will also send home last year’s journal as an example for you. Have fun & BE CREATIVE!

So sorry but the Froggy schedule is not following the calendar. Unfortunately, several friends did not return Froggy on time but I will make sure everyone has at least one chance to take him home before the end of the year.

As the Scholastic Books Reading Club Coordinator for Central Boulevard I am thrilled to be able to send home fliers with your child. It is a great way to encourage beginning readers at a very inexpensive cost. Look for details in your child's folder!

Our class is rewarded with books and treats every time we place an order! If you would like to order online our class code is: DVX8C. You can pay by check (made out to Scholastic) or Credit Card  (online only). 

If you should have any questions about appropriate books and reading levels I would love to chat with you! Please let me know if you place an order online so that I can confirm it right away. If I don't know that an order has been placed it could delay the shipment.
