2019-2020 School Year

It's going to be an AMAZING year! I look forward to getting to know each of you and your child. I am sorry I am unable to attend Open House on August 7th from 5-7. I have a previous commitment that was scheduled prior to the Open House date being released. Please look through the site, as this will be a tool for you to use to keep up with what we are doing in the classroom, upcoming events as well as many other things. We will rock 1st grade!

-Matt Bickers

This year we will be working on being a 

"Good Neighbor" and working towards being good citizens of our classroom, school and community.

This year I am using Class Dojo as a behavioral tracking tool. You will be able to see daily how points are given for doing the right thing at school. Please pick up your login sheet from Ms.McCracken, room 112 during Open House. I will also be sending home login forms on the first day of school. It is important to make sure I have a working phone number at all times throughout the school year. In addition to Dojo, I will be using colors in class so you will be able to see what color your child ended their day on. These two tools will give you an accurate vision of your child's day.
