1st Grade Virtual Learner's Link


Need a bedtime story? Here is one read by me!

The Big Orange Splot!

Virtual education was extremely successful at SJS! 

Without skipping a beat our students began flexible instruction packets and moved to online instruction from the very first Monday of PA school closures. Our children and parents transitioned wonderfully! We completed daily assignments online, including morning meeting to promote as much normalcy in our student's lives as possible.

We are prepared to seamlessly switch to virtual instruction should the need arise again!

About Your Teacher

Hello! My name is Mrs. Neidig and I will be your child's first grade teacher at St. Joseph School. I graduated from Kutztown University with my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in Reading. This is my third year teaching at St. Joe's, having taught one year of first grade and one year of Kindergarten. Prior to that I taught Preschool for three years here in Danville. Kindergarten and 1st grade are my favorite age group of learners! Our classroom will have a heavy academic focus, but also incorporate many hands on, engaging activities to keep our first graders excited about learning!

What is first grade up to? 

Be sure to watch for my monthly newsletter coming home the beginning of every month for a peek into what we are learning that month and upcoming events!
