Dear First Grade Families,

My name is Tara Girard and I am very excited to be your child’s first grade teacher. This will be my sixth year teaching 1st grade at Green Acres and I have found our school to be a kind, friendly and supportive environment where students are provided with the conditions they need for success! First grade is an exciting adventure, filled with new experiences and wonderful activities. We will have fun exploring science, investigating math and learning about places all over the world. We will read fantastic books, become authors and develop new friendships. I intend to do all that I can to make this year memorable, valuable and enjoyable for your child.  
I believe communication is very important, and I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. You can write me a note, give me a call (ext. 233) or you can reach me by e-mail at I will also do my part to keep you updated on your child and what we are doing in the classroom. Please feel free to participate in your child’s first grade year as much as you are able. Helping hands are always welcome in the classroom!

I am looking forward to a happy and exciting year with you and your child!

Tara Girard
