First Grade

We Are First Grade

Our school day begins at 8:35 am.  Please have your child at school on time so that they do not miss any instructional time.  Students will be held in the first grade hallway and teachers will pick them up there.


Your child’s progress, both academically and socially, is greatly influenced by your child’s attendance to school on a regular basis as well as punctuality.  If for any reason your child will be absent please call the office at 407 845-0665 or send a note to school the following day explaining why your child was absent.

Acceptable absences are:

  • Student illness
  • Medical appointment (this is not an excused absence-it is an excused late arrival or early dismissal)
  • Death in family
  • Observance of religious holiday   

Classroom Behavior

This year Millennia Gardens will be having a school wide behavior plan.  Students will use our Walla Color system to track their behavior throughout the school day.  All students start their day on green and then move up or down the color chart depending on their behavior.

Purple- Excellent/Perfect Day!
Blue-Great Day!
Green- Ready to Learn/Good Day
Yellow- Caution/Warning
Orange- Reflection Time/Time Out
Red- Parent Contact/Loss of Privileges

Please check your child’s agenda each night to see what Walla color they ended up on for the day.

If your child is a car rider you must have a Millennia Gardens hang tag in your car.  If you do not have this, your child may not be put in the car.  

If your child will be leaving early or will not be going home according to their normal routine, a written note must be provided giving clear instructions on how and when the child is going home.

Folders and Planners

On the first day of school your child will receive a take-home folder and a planner.  The take-home folder and the planner should be reviewed every night.  Any important documents will be sent home in the take-home folder.


Lunch is free for all students.  You have the option of sending a packed lunch for your child if you wish.


 1st grade children have a small snack daily. The snacks need to be provided by each individual student from home. Please send in a small healthy treat for your child EVERY DAY.  Some snack ideas are: cheese and crackers, fruit snacks, graham crackers, etc.


If you have any questions please contact your child’s first grade teacher

Thanks for trusting us with your children's education! We are honored to serve you!
