Welcome Back


Dear Parents of New First Graders,

Hi, my name is Mrs. Ogg and I will be your child's teacher this year. I am so excited to meet all of you and begin a new school year at Brewster Elementary! This will be my 29th year at the First Grade level (hard for me to believe) and I am anxious to share that experience with you and your child. We will be doing many fun and exciting activities this year so I hope you're as ready as I am to get started.

For the first day of school please write your child's name and how they will get home from school on a name tag. You just need to write either Walker, Pickup, Bus or SAC so I know where to send them at the end of each school day. Also, include on the tag my name, Mrs. Ogg, and our room number, 31. Please have your child wear this tag on the first day of school.

The following is the First Grade supply list. Rochester Community Schools provides all the necessary materials and supplies for curricular areas. Any items on this list that you wish to contribute for your child would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions about the supply list please ask me about it on the first day of school. We won't be using everything right away so don't worry.

-1 large Spacemaker Pencil Box        -1- Blue 1in 3 ringed binder      -1 box 48 crayons       -4 glue sticks and 3 -4oz Elmers Glue

-2 dozen #2 pencils         -1 pair student scissors        -2 large pink erasers        -1 wide ruled composition notebook    -2 spiral notebooks 1red &1blue

-1 container disinfecting wipes         -1 box facial tissue         -1 small sponge        -1 box of 8 small markers

Parents, as you know, First Grade is a very important year for your child. Their success depends on the combined efforts of the child, the teacher, and the parents. Please make sure to keep the lines of communication open. If at any time you have a concern, question, or comment let me know as soon as possible. I look forward to working with you and your child this school year. The best way to get a hold of me is through note or email. My school address is cogg@rochester.k12.mi.us

I look forward to meeting you soon!

Most Sincerely,

Mrs. Ogg
