Welcome to Mrs. Russ’ Online Classroom!

Hello First Grade Parents!


The first grade teachers are missing each and every laugh, smile and hug we get from our sweet friends each day. We hope to be reunited soon. Until that time comes when we can be back together we wanted to take a moment and explain how to turn in completed work each week. Please refer to the following and if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact one of your child’s teachers. 


Paper packets as you know are given out each Thursday. On the following Thursday you will return the packets to the school. If the buses drop the packets off then they will also pick them up. If you come to the school to pick up the current week's packets, there will be a box that you will put all finished packets. Please make sure that finished packets have the students first and last name along with his/her homeroom teacher clearly written on the front of the packet. 


If you are choosing to do the critical lessons and choice board online we will be sending out links for you to join SeeSaw. On SeeSaw you and your child will be able to upload pictures of their completed assignments. Through the SeeSaw application we will also be able to provide your child feedback on the work that they have turned in. 


Thank you all so much for your kindness, patience and willingness to help us continue making this school year successful for your child.
