Mrs. Van Wright's Class

September 2023


Parents, Guardians and Amazing Students,

Welcome to the 2023-24 school year! My name is Kiyoi Tolliver- Van Wright and I will be your child's teacher. I have been teaching first grade for almost 23 years at School 9. I know that this school year is going to start off far differently than expected, but we can do this! We will all need to be patient, considerate and transparent. 

We will work very hard this year. The last 3 years has affected education as a whole. I will do my best to fill in skills that have not been learned, and teach new skills. I can only do this with your help! 

Please take time each day to work on reading and math (as we will do in class). It is very important to focus on letters, sounds, sight words, sequencing, and key detail skills for reading. In math, please, focus on numbers, counting, number bonds and addition. 


Looking forward to a different, yet incredible year, 

Mrs. Van Wright
