• Welcome to 1st Grade

    Dear Parents,                                        

             I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you and share some information.  My name is Jill Newman, and I will be your child’s First Grade teacher!  I am a resident of Richboro and have a wonderful husband and a twenty-three year old son.  You will probably see me around town so please don’t ever hesitate to say hello.  I have had the privilege of teaching at Richboro Elementary School since the building opened in 1989!  
         As the summer is quickly coming to an end and you begin to prepare for the coming year. please take a few minutes to email me any information that you would like to share about your son or daughter.  Please let me know if your child has a nickname so that I can print this name on their name tags.
       The first day of school can be both exciting and scary for the children.  I will do my best to alleviate their fears as I have many fun activities planned for the first week of school.  Please take a minute to check out my website.  I have listed the recommended school supplies that you may consider purchasing over the summer.  Your child can bring in their supplies during our 1st Grade Orientation.
       Your child will receive a "First Day of School" transportation card either through an email that you can print out at
     home, at orientation, or the first day of school.  Please complete the tag and attach it to your child's backpack so that
     it is visible during the first week of school with the following information: 
    1. Dismissal arrangements (car, bus, childcare)
    2. Bus number going home ONLY (please check because sometimes the bus number is different in the morning than in the afternoon.)
    3. Parent's name + phone number where you can be reached at dismissal time ( please include this under "other" 
    I am looking forward to working with your son or daughter this school year.  Please feel free to contact me at any time!


    Enjoy the rest of your summer!
