Eldred, Cheryl


  • Welcome to first grade!  How exciting to be at the start of a new school year here at Olympic View Elementary!  I hope you are feeling refreshed and ready to begin the year ahead.  While it is hard to say good-bye to the summer break, there is always a part of me that looks forward to the new school year.  Each year brings the exciting opportunity to teach – and learn from – a new bunch of wonderful kids! 

    First grade is a year full of transitions.  As the year progresses, you will see your child gain both responsibility and independence as a member of a challenging, exciting, and motivating learning environment.  I hope our class will be a place where your child feels comfortably challenged and where he or she will find the motivation to strive towards personal excellence.  I always strive to nurture a caring and loving classroom where we can celebrate our achievements, support one another’s emotional needs, and encourage one another towards positive change. I find this type of environment to be so important to learning, and I sincerely hope that our class will be a place your child will look forward to coming to each day. I love teaching and I will do everything I can to make sure your child succeeds!

    Support and interest from parents is a key element of student success. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.  Working together, I know that we can ensure a positive first grade experience for your child.
