Welcome to First Grade!

    Welcome to our Class Website! 


    I am truly excited to be your child's teacher! First Grade is a wonderful year in which you will see your child progress academically, gain confidence, and enjoy learning.  I am happy to be working with each of you this year! 


    This website will be a way for me to communicate and share all of the wonderful things that are going on in our classroom and at Grissom School.  I hope you find this information both useful and helpful.  If you ever have any concerns, or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  My email address is cdoyle@obps.org.  You can also always call the school at 732-360-4481, or send a note in your child's folder.


    For the remainder of the year we will continue to use the web-based program, Class Dojo that helps track students’ behavior using a point system. Students are able to accumulate both positive and negative points throughout our day. This is also where I post pictures and videos from our classroom which will be private and only visible to the parents of the students in our class. In addition, Class Dojo allows me to contact you in real time through text messaging with reminders and messages.
