Government Hill First Grade




If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.  We need to work together to help your child succeed.


In the classroom....


The first month is a very busy time learning new expectations, practicing school drills, reuniting with friends and adjusting to new teachers.  Take some time to talk to your child about school and what is new and fun about First Grade.

End of Quarter-NO SCHOOL



The students have been doing an exceptional job completing and returning their math and reading homework. 

It is especially nice to see the many hours parents are reading with their children at home.  Great job!

                                   OPEN HOUSE

It was great to see so many parents at the Government Hill Open House.  The level of support and involvement in your children’s education is exciting.  We are very fortunate to work with such a great group of parents. 


                                             RAZ-KIDS and Lexia

      All students now have their Raz-Kid and Lexia passwords to use at school and home.

                                                         Student Birthdays

We will celebrate each child’s birthday by singing “Happy Birthday” and having the student pick a book and bookmark from our gift box.  Please do not send treats on your child’s birthday.  Instead, we will celebrate all of our August /September birthdays on the last Friday of the month.  Our first birthday celebration day will be Friday, September 26.  During this celebration all of the August/September birthday children are allowed to bring treats into our class.  Our August and September birthdays are: 

Victoria Aug. 6         Nicholas Sept. 5          Ignacio Sept. 9         Alandria Sept. 20     

Roman Sept. 27          Emily Sept. 29          Jessica Sept. 30

         Fun Friday  

Each week the students must earn their Fun Friday.  If your child does not make it to Fun Friday, we will send a note home explaining why they missed out.  Please talk to your child about missing the special event and sign and return the note.
