Welcome To Mrs. Russell's First Grade Page!
I am so excited about the 2017-2018 school year and making special memories with my kiddos! I love Dr. Seuss (just stop by my room to see proof) and I LOVE reading:) This will be my 3rd year at High Point and my 5th year teaching and all 5 have been in first grade.

In my class, I send home monthly homework packets that are optional. If your student completes these, they will recieve a prize at the end of the month. If they do not complete them, there will be no consequence. It is required that your student spend at least 20 minute per night reading in order to be successful. Students may read from their nightly readers, library books or materials that you already have at home! I encourage you to make reading a family activity and get everyone involved!
Email is the best way to contact me!
