    Thank you for visiting our school and classroom websites. It is our first grade team's hope that this website will be a great resource for parents to find out about Hillside Elementary events, accessing resources for your child, and other school-related information.  

    In the classroom, your son's/daughter's Communication Folder will be the best resource to prepare for the weekly and daily events in first grade, especially for curriculum within our classroom.  Your child is responsible for taking the Communication Folder back-and-forth between home and school. 
     
    If the communication folder does not inform you well enough, please do not hesitate to use email to get clarification on any matter.   
     
    For first grade students, I recommend a combined total of ten (10) minutes of homework a night. Almost daily, math has a short one page assignment (2-3 minutes needed) which resembles the math lesson introduced or practiced that day.  The remainder of homework time should be dedicated to you and your child reading together. As the fall progresses, hopefully, you and your child can read for more than ten minutes daily as the interest and skills develop.  
     
    I recommend that any skill practice should be fun for both of you. Try to approach any task to create better understanding for your child without her/him realizing that learning is taking place.  Good luck and have fun this year!
