    Dear 1CO Students and Parents, 

    Welcome to the exciting world of First Grade with Mrs. O'Neill and Mrs. Conklin! First Graders are naturally hungry for information. Their eagerness, curiosity, imagination, and drive are at an all-time high. This allows for a great deal of knowledge to be constructed, resulting in significant development and growth. In First Grade, reading and writing begin to extend and enrich all other curricular areas. Autonomy is encouraged in an effort to promote greater independent risk-taking, problem-solving and learning. We are excited to share this year with you!

    We look forward to getting to know you and your family.  Our parent/teacher relationship is key to success and we cannot wait to work with you. We will communicate by using the Google Sites platform. Click on this link to access our 1st grade site. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with this site before school begins. Our 1st Grade Team will continue to post additional information throughout the year to supplement our classwork and curriculum.

    Please contact Mrs. Conklin or myself if you have any questions or concerns.  You may call the school (914-721-2760), email both ( coneill@scarsdaleschools.org and jconklin@scarsdaleschools.org ), or write us a note.  We are looking forward to working with you to make your child’s 1st grade experience truly rewarding.



    Mrs.O'Neill & Mrs. Conklin
