This upcoming week we will be doing lots of review! I will be doing some report card assessments and testing for reading levels. There will be no new spelling words or story of the week, but we will continue along with our Math Curriculum!

Almost everyone in our class has hit their AR Goal! I know that the kids are really excited for their rewards!

Spring Break is March 20-24 with school resuming on March 27.

If your heading out of town during Spring Break, I wish you all the fun in the world and safe travels! If your enjoying a “Staycation,” I hope you have a blast lounging in your pajamas until noon and sleeping in!

*Reminders for February!*


– Thursday at 7 PM is our Beatles Performance! I am not sure of what time they are supposed to be there, I am assuming probably around 6:30, but will update as soon as I know! I can’t wait! They have been practicing so hard all week!

– No school on Monday- President’s Day

-Tuesday, 2/21 are parent-teacher conferences! I am sending home bright yellow reminder notes that have the confirmed conference time on them. Please know that I tried my best to accommodate every ones request, if the allotted time does not work for you, just e-mail me and we can figure out an alternative day/time that does.

– Sock & Underwear Drive continues through the end of February…the 1st grade class that collects the most WEIGHT in donations gets an EXTRA RECESS! The class that collects the most WEIGHT in donations for the entire school, gets a sock party! The kids were really excited about that!

Also, just wanted to say THANK YOU for all the kind gifts, valentines, and chocolate your children made/gave to me! I was overwhelmed with LOVE, your children are important to me, and I am lucky to have each and every single one of them in my class! =

Happy 100th Day of School! 

While the 100th day of school was today, I know the kids and I are excited to celebrate on Friday! We will be making crowns, sharing our 100’s collections, writing 100 words                ( attempting, ) counting to 100, eating 100 piece trail mix, and watching 101 Dalmatians!  Please try to have your child’s collections here by tomorrow ( Wednesday ) or Thursday at the latest!

100th Day!

Our 100th day of school is next Tuesday the 24th, but we will be celebrating it on Friday the 27th! (That is when the other first grade and kindergarten classes are celebrating!) Please keep your eyes out for a handout coming home about the 100th day. We have lots of fun activities planned, and the students will get to bring in a collection of 100 items that they choose!


Welcome Back!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful break with their family & friends!

Just to follow up with the county’s phone calls: We are dismissing two hours early today: 1:30pm.

I also updated the “Week at a Glance”


Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

Just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! Your children are all wonderful little human beings and I love spending everyday with them! I hope everyone enjoys their time with family & friends.

Safe Travels and see you in the New Year!

-Ms. Reamy-


Book Exchange!

I sent home a note last week about our book exchange!  Please spend no more then $5 on the book, wrap it, and write on  it if it is for a boy or girl! Your child will receive a book in return for bringing one!  I’d like to get them turned in as soon as possible, that way I can buy extras if we do not have enough for all the kids. I think it’s an awesome idea, and who knows your child may find a new interest for reading?!?

~The exchange will take place during our party on 12/21~

Don’t Forget!

Our last day of school is Wednesday, December 21st! It is a half day, dismissal time is at 11:30, with the classroom parties starting at 10:30.


Adopt-A-Family Update!

Gifts for our Adopt-A-Family are due on Friday, November 2nd by 9 am! If you have any questions or concerns please direct them to Kathryn Hartley, she has been so wonderful in taking charge of this great cause!

Don’f forget to check out this week at a glance!


We will only have school Monday & Tuesday of next week!

Thanksgiving Break is November 23-27th!

I hope you all have a wonderful break, and spend some much needed quality time with your families! I know I will!

My name is Samantha Reamy. I am 26 years old, and am a mom to a very rambunctious and enregetic 2 and half year old boy named Dominic! I received my bachelors degree in Elementary Education from Middle Tennessee State University in December of 2013.

This is my first year teaching, and I look forward to many more years to come! I have a great support system from my other 1st grade teachers, and administrators, and am lucky to be part of such a wonderful community!

Teaching is not only my passion, but my life! Thank you for sharing your children with me! I learn from them just as much as they learn from me!
