A Letter From Your Teachers

Dear Families,

Welcome to First Grade at Live Oak! Please bring your child to the back playground (blacktop) to line up with classmates each morning at the following line numbers on the blacktop:


Ms. Cotton           Line #29
Ms. Fuller    Line #26           
Mrs. Gee Line #28
Mrs. Saad Line #25           
Mrs. Yan Line #27 



Please make sure your child knows how he/she will be going home. Will your child be going to carpool, vanpool, walking home or staying at the Growing Room? That's the question we will be asking students at the end of each day. Due to duties at other parts of the school, another teacher may lead your child to the appropriate pick-up area.


Here's some information that may be helpful for the first day of school:

School Supplies: Thank you for your generous donations at registration. We have purchased items needed to begin work in the classroom.

Clothing: Students should wear appropriate clothing and footwear since they will be skipping, climbing, jumping and swinging during recess and P.E.

Backpacks: Please provide your child with a student backpack (preferably without wheels). It will help ensure that folders, books, notes and homework travel between home and school securely.  

Keep in Touch: If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email your teacher. 

We are looking forward to a wonderful school year. Thank you for helping us have a smooth start on the very first day of school.

Soul Shoppe

Soul Shoppe teaches students important skills that support them academically and socially through life. This interactive program focuses on problem solving, conflict resolution, and creating a community of respect and growth. We've attended our second workshop. The children really enjoy learning empathy, how to express their feelings and using problem-solving tools in social situations.
