Welcome Letter to Students

Dear First Grader,

Hi!  My name is Mrs. Ortuno, and I will be your first grade teacher this year at Stoneman Elementary.   I am so excited that you will be in my class this year!  I can’t wait to meet you and start our year together.

I know you are going to love first grade.  We will have oceans of fun learning about things like geography, measurement, weather and so much more.  We will also read fascinating stories, solve challenging math problems, write stories, and go on field trips.  This year you will learn and grow so much!

There is so much more to tell you about first grade, and I can’t wait to see you on the first day of school.  You can visit me and write me at our class website:


The website has lots of information about our classroom as well as lots of links where you and your family can work and play.

I look forward to seeing you very soon in our classroom!

Smiles and Laughter,

Mrs. Ortuno
