Welcome to Mrs. Richards' First Grade Class

Welcome to Mrs. Richards' First Grade Class!
We would like to welcome our new friends Lopaka and Jonah to our class. Jonah started last Friday and Lopaka started Monday! We love making new friends. We have also started our Weekly Book Buddies with Ms. Callarman's 5th Grade Class. We enjoyed reading with our new friends. Friday is Leadership Day. We will meet and learn about leaders in our community to conclude our IB Unit of Inquiry: How We Organize Ourselves. Please note, Mrs. Richards will be out September 21 & 29 due to teacher trainings. We will have a substitute teacher on those days.
