Susan Payton - First Grade  (Send e-mail)

Welcome to the new school year! I am thrilled to be your child's teacher and excited to get to know your son or daughter. We are going to have a wonderful year of learning and growing together!

Please use this website for important dates and events that will be happening in our classroom, at Grand Prairie, and in the district. I will also place a copy of my weekly newsletter in the downloads section that will keep you apprised of the learning and activities in our classroom.

Parents: Governor Pat Quinn signed Erin's Law in January of 2013, which requires all schools in the state of Illinois to provide age appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention education programs for their students in grades Pre-K through 12. In response to this legislation, Frankfort School District 157-C will be adding, "Child Lures Prevention: Think First and Stay Safe", curriculum for the school year. The curriculum is available in the school office for parents to preview. The 1st presentation will be during the week of Oct. 23rd and the 2nd presentation will be during the week of Dec. 11th.

The building social workers will be presenting this information to our students.

This week's I CAN statements:

Reading: I CAN identify feeling words/phrases. I CAN identify the central message of a story.

Writing: I CAN write a narrative story with details.

Math: I CAN count to 120. I can solve word problems.
