Welcome to First Grade

Another school year is about to begin and along with that a new journey for your child.  I am looking forward to meeting all of my new students and parents at our Open House on August 12, 2015.  I will post the times of Open House as we get closer to the date.  Until then, enjoy the rest of your summer.  As for me, I will be spending the rest of my summer preparing for your children's first days of school.  

Meet Mrs. Swiger on August 12, 2015 at LES Hopen House from 4:00 to 6:00  

Our first field trip of the year was quiet the success.  We met Smokey the Bear and learned about his true story.  We learned about the Native Americans, The Pony Express and how the cowboys roped in their cattle.  

They had to practice before they got me.

They roped me in.

Welcome to First Grade 2016-2017

Meet the Teacher

Ms. Zornes

Learning to shoot with my new camera on top of Dolly Sods.

One of my most favorite things to do; paint.  

Helping out the flood victims in Clendenin, WV. My friends and I hauled about 4,400 lbs. of ice that day.

I would like to welcome everyone back to a new school year.  First Grade is very challenging and rewarding and maybe, even at times, frustrating.  However, there is no need to be afraid of the up coming year.  By working closely with you and your child, we WILL meet and conquer all of these challenges.  I am looking forward to meeting all of you at our annual Open House on August 15, 2016 from 3:30-5:30.  At this time, you and your child will have the opportunity to see their room, where they will be sitting, meeting old friends as well as making new ones.

There will be a grade level parent meeting later in the month in order to discuss classroom expectations, assessments and to gather contact information.  I am very excited to start this school year out healthy and with a new name:  Ms. Zornes.
