Ten Reasons to Read to Your Child

1.  Because when you hold them and give them attention, they know you love them.
2.  Because reading to them will encourage them to become readers.
3.  Because children's books today are so good that they are fun even for adults.
4.  Children's books' illustrations often rank with the best, giving them a lifelong feeling for good       art.
5.  Books are one way of passing on moral values to them.  Readers know how to put                
     themselves in others' shoes.
6.  Because, until they learn to read themselves, they will think you are magic.
7.  Because every teacher and librarian they will ever encounter will thank you.
8.  Because it's nostalgic.
9.  Because, for that short space of time, they will stay clean and quiet.
10. Because, if you do, they will let you read in peace.

I want to wish everyone a healthy and happy New Year.  School will be back into full swing January 6.  I am finally having my hip replaced on January 7 and will be on Medical Leave until mid-February.  The students will be in good hands while I am on the mend.  Mrs. Shannon Davis will take my place teaching and Ms. Werner will be here to assist.  The children have met Mrs. Davis and they will get along just fine.  I will miss everyone while I am gone.

Welcome to first grade!
The first week we will be getting to know each other and brushing up on our Kindergarten skills.  We will talk about the rules, manners, conflict resolution and practice Fire Drill.  We will learn that Jesus loves us, how to pray, and we will attend Mass on Friday morning.  I hope to see you at Open House on Thursday evening!

A little bit about me:
This is my 14th year teaching here at Res., all of them in First Grade.  I have a Master's Degree in Reading from Mount St. Joe.  Previously I taught Preschool for 20 years.  I have 3 grown boys and 3 terrific grandchildren.  Sadly, my husband passed away in March.  I love teaching here and the families and staff at Res. are very important to me.  I hope you will love Res. too!
