Walsh Elementary School
Home of the Wildcats
Welcome to one of the most incredible years your child will have in his/her school career! First grade is an exciting time as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. This is a year of important transitions, as well as one in which acquisition of new skills is accelerated. First graders develop fundamental work habits, appropriate social behavior, problem solving and decision-making skills and of course academic skills. If you are interested in specific academic standards for first grade, you are invited to visit the Walsh School District website at d92.org. I hope to make your child's first day learning experience a fun and exciting one, and to instill a love of learning that will last throughout your child's years of schooling.
I have put this note together as a reference for you. It contains information to help acquaint you with many of our classroom procedures. Another important reference is our school website.
I am very excited to see many Wildcat friends on the first day and to meet your child.
Enjoy the remaining days of summer!
Mrs. Catherine Polson
