Welcome to First Grade

 Dear Parents of New First Graders,

Welcome to first grade! My name is Mr. Miserlian and I will be your child's first grade teacher. I am very anxious to begin a new school year at Brewster Elementary! This will be my ninth year teaching first grade and I know it is going to be another amazing school year full of exciting activities.

On the first day of school, please write your child's first/last name and how they will get home from school on a name tag. You just need to write: Walker, Student Valet, Bus or SAC so I know where to send them at the end of each school day. In addition, please include my name, Mr. Miserlian and room number #12. Please have your child wear this tag on the first day of school.

I have included a suggested First Grade supply list. Please note the following list of supplies and materials will be helpful for your use in the classroom. Rochester Community Schools provides all the necessary materials and supplies for curricular classes, but often children prefer to bring their own. If you previously purchased the School Kit for first grade, you most likely have many of these items. Please check your kit, before purchasing these items. Thank you. Also, in preparation to the first day, please make sure to label all items such as, outdoor gear, school bags, and lunch box. School supplies may be brought to school on the very first day.

-1 large Spacemaker Pencil Box -1 Blue one inch ringed binder

  -2 dozen #2 pencils -4 glue sticks and 3 four oz. Elmers Glue

-1 container disinfecting wipes -1 box facial tissue

-1 box of assorted color pencils -1 box of 8 small markers

Parents, as you know, first grade is a very important year for your child and their success depends on the combined efforts of the child, the teacher and the parents. I look forward to working with all of you throughout the school year. The best way to contact me is through email or hand written notes placed in your child's take home folder. My email address is amiserlian@rochester.k12.mi.us


Sincerely, Mr. Adam Miserlian
