Dear Parents,                                                     August 3, 2012
I’d like to welcome you and your child to first grade at Newport Primary. I am looking forward to a new and exciting year. I can guarantee that I will do my best to make this a great first grade year for your child. 
I am beginning my eighth year in Newport as a teacher. I earned my Master’s degree from Northern Kentucky University and currently working on my Rank 1 certificate. I want to encourage your child to set goals and follow their dreams as I was encouraged throughout my years in Newport Schools.
Open house will take place on Thursday, August 16th from 6:00 – 7:30 for 1st and 2nd graders. During Open House you and your child can visit the classroom as well as get a head start on some of the information that is sent home the first day of school such as the classroom expectations, schedules, volunteer information, and daily communication. You may bring your child’s school supplies to the open house. 
I hope to see you at open house. The first day of school is Wednesday, August 22nd.
                                                                        Thank you,
                                                                        Mrs. Hayden
