welcome to first grade

Happy 2020-2021 School Year!!


Welcome to First Grade! 

I am Mrs. Kaylene Kartanas.   I am very excited to be your child's teacher this year.  We will be remote learning for the first quarter of the 2020-21 school year.   We will be using iPads as well as other tools to make the best out of learning at home.  

This is going to be a busy year.  We will be challenging our brains with many new concepts and skills.  My classroom, whether it's remote or in room 151, is a place where we all have a First Grade State of Mind and Do Everything the First Grade Way!!!!
