    1st Grade Class  

    About Mrs. Gates
    I have been a teacher for 9 years. Before coming to Clermont I taught in Michigan and in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. I have taught preschoolers through 5th graders. When I am not at school I enjoy scrapbooking and quilting. I also spend a lot of time watching Penn State football and Michigan State basketball. I am married and have a 3 year old girl named Reagan, and a 6 month old little boy name Henry.

        Mrs. Gates' Special Schedule

        Day 1: Music 

        Day 2: Library

        Day 3: Gym (don't forget your sneakers)

                                                                     Day 4: Book Exchange (Bring your library books today)

        Day 5: Music (Bring your library books today)



         We will follow a 5 day cycle this year. If we miss a day of school we will not miss a cycle day. For example if Friday is cycle day 4 and we don't have school Monday, Tuesday will be cycle day 5.

         Please make sure to check your child's Friday letter so that you know what cycle day we will be starting on each week. This is very important so that library books are returned on time and sneakers are worn the correct day for gym.
