Dear Parents, Friends, and Students,
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I am excited to be your First Grade teacher and we welcome you to Pontchartrain Elementary. My name is Patricia Scherer and I am a graduate of Southeastern Louisiana University in Early Childhood Education. I am certified to teach Pre-Kindergarten through Third Grade. Rest assured I will do my best to make this school year an enjoyable time for your child, but also a time filled with engaging learning activities. The skills we practice daily in First Grade are the building blocks for your child's future success in school and in life!
Along with learning in the classroom, your child will spend time outside of the classroom in art, library, music, science labs, and physical education. Unique project based learning activities will include STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) lessons. This year I want your child to not only enjoy coming to school, but to love and look forward to each day and feel a part of our classroom and school community. Each child is unique and will be held to their highest potential. One goal is for each student to learn how to become more independent and leave my class filled with knowledge to excel quickly in Second Grade.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact me through notes, by calling the school's office, or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am looking forward to meeting and working with you!
