    I am really looking forward to a great year and to watching my first graders grow into independent learners and individuals!!!!!  It is going to be an AMAZING year!

    Our Classroom

    Our classroom is a very busy and organized place to learn. Your help will be needed throughout the school year and parents are also needed and very much appreciated!

    Communication

    Communication is essential and I will be sending home a weekly note about school news and homework assignments in the homework folder so please check it every night! You can also visit our school website for school updates, pictures and helpful resources.

    **Due to the pandemic, I will be using ClassDojo and Our Google Classroom to communicate with you this year.  Please check for messages, information, and news on ClassDojo.

     

    Please feel free to contact me through a note (placed in the homework folder or through ClassDojo), by email: dheerema@hackensackschools.org, or call me at school @ 201-646-7870. I welcome your thoughts and I am looking forward to meeting you soon and to working together to make first grade a successful year!

    Homework

    Each day, students will bring home a "homework folder" in which they will have activities to complete or would be assigned work to complete on Google Classroom and on assigned programs and websites.  Please DO NOT do their homework for them, but only guide them if needed.

    Computer Programs and Home Log In Information

     

    We use many computer programs and websites to enhance our learning such as Google Classroom, ClassDojo, IXL, Raz-Kids, Pearson, ThinkCentral, and many others.  Students have access to these programs and websites from home and will be able to enhance their learning and complete their work from the comfort of their own space. Please see links below for log in letters and infortmation.
