I am excited and grateful to be your child’s 1st grade teacher!  As a community of learners, we will all grow together this year- academically, spiritually, emotionally and personally. I am here to guide our first graders on this journey of growth and learning. Thank you for your trust and partnership this year. I look forward to working with you and your children.

Mrs. Barako’s Welcome Letter

August 28, 2017 by · Comments Off on Mrs. Barako’s Welcome Letter · Announcements/Blog

Dear Parents,

Congratulations, you have a first grader! My name is Mrs. Barako and I will be your child’s teacher this year. Mrs. Gibbs will be our full-time aide. Each year I’m so happy to be teaching 1st grade and I look forward to a fun, productive, and exciting time full of learning opportunities. This is my 7th year at Assumption and my 14th year teaching 1st grade. Also, I am a proud graduate of Assumption, class of ’91! It really has been special being back here as a teacher.

I hope you can all make it to Back to School Night on Wednesday, September 13th. I will be giving you much more information about our class including the schedule & routines, curriculum, academic/behavior expectations, and class/home communication.

This week we’ll be diving right into the STAR Assessments for early literacy, reading and math Mon-Thurs. Please make sure your child is present, on-time, rested, and has eaten a healthy breakfast.

If you have any questions or concerns please email me or put a note in your child’s homework folder. I usually don’t reply to emails during school hours but will reply by the same evening. I will read notes from the folder each morning and reply as needed. Likewise, you might see a note from me in your child’s folder.

I look forward to getting to know your child and helping them achieve their goals this year!


Mrs. Barako
