• Dear Families,
    Welcome to First Grade! 
    I have been preparing for an amazing year together!  Our classroom will respect all learners.  It will provide a safe, warm and comfortable environment to spark creativity and individuality.  Together we will laugh, learn and grow! 
    Autonomy will be a key component.  It will be fostered in all aspects of the curriculum to promote greater independence with problem solving, risk taking and a love of learning.  
    Additionally, you can find more First Grade information on The First Grade Google Site.
    Please feel free to contact me with any questions at blaaraj@scarsdaleschools.org.
    I look forward to meeting you in September!
    Best Regards,
    Mrs. Laaraj
