Class Info

First Grade

Ms. Doane

Roanoke Academy for Math and Science

General Information:

We have a large variety of learning opportunities this school year!  My belief is that children learn best when the subject matter is meaningful and fun.  I have high expectations for my students and am very excited to see how much they grow this year!         

Your child will be bringing home their folders every day for you to review. These folders include their daily behavior report, any homework assigned, and graded assignments. Please check DAILY and initial in the space provided on their weekly newsletter.  My website is a great place to check for class information, upcoming events, and pictures of fun activities we’re participating in during class time. However, if you ever have questions, feel free to call or email me! I will get back to you as soon as is possible.             

First Grade Expectations:          ​

Students need to know their boundaries and expectations of the classroom in order to be successful at school.  The following rules are put in place on the first day of class: 

We follow directions quickly.

·        We raise our hand for permission to speak.

·        We raise our hand to leave our seat.

·        We make smart choices.

·        We make our dear teacher(s) happy. 

·        We HAVE FUN!!!! 

Although positive reinforcements will be the primary goal of our classroom, consequences will be enforced if necessary.  We also use Class Dojo to track the behavioral choices your child is making throughout the day. If you do not know how to access our class page, please let me know so I can send you the necessary information to do so.

Thank you for your support!!
