Welcome to First Grade

     **Strange times these are. 
      I am available by email and through Seesaw if you need anything or have questions to help you navigate during this time. Please reference the Cabarrus county Extended Home Learning Page to help guide you on how to locate plans. We will still be using Seesaw for students to post their work but you will need to click on How to Access Canvas so you can learn how to access the work. Be patient. We are all learning here.**
