Dear First Grade Students and Families,
My name is Mrs. Natasha Wetzel, and it is with great enthusiasm that I will be your child’s teacher this year. Because I will be spending a great deal of time with your child, I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a few things about myself.
This is my eleventh year teaching for Adrian Public Schools, and my sixth year teaching at Lincoln. I am very excited to be teaching first grade this year. I attended Adrian Public Schools for elementary, middle and high school, and then earned my B.A. degree from Siena Heights University in the fall of 2004. In 2007-2008, I attended Eastern Michigan University and earned a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I am currently taking courses at Eastern pursuing my Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership. I live in Adrian with my husband; Matt, my daughter, Jaeden, who will be in second grade at Lincoln and my son Braeden, who will be in the young five class at Lincoln, as well.
This year school will begin at 8:40 am, the first bell rings at 8:30 am, the doors will open at 8:10 am for breakfast. Classes will be dismissed at 3:48 pm. Please have students line up with their class outside and I will pick them up at 8:30.
I wanted to give you some information about what your child should bring by the end of the first week of school.
If there is a change in after school plans, please send a note in your child’s folder or call the school. I will be following the directions given to me at open house unless I hear from you.
If at any time you have a question or concern, please don’t hesitate contacting me. You are welcome to send a note with your child, email me a message, call the office and leave me a message or stop in before or after school. Lastly, thank you for sharing your child with me this year!
Thanks for your support!
