Mrs. Tolnay

1st Grade Teacher

Hi, my name is Mrs. Lisa Tolnay. I have been teaching for over 30 years. I have taught 5th, 2nd, 1st, kindergarten and now 3rd grade. I don’t have a favorite. I loved something about each and every grade. Teaching is such a rewarding occupation. The kids are always making me feel so blessed to be part of their lives. In addition to teaching I am a mother of two daughters who have made me so proud as well. My daughter Emily is a fashion designer in NYC and my daughter Rachel works in health care. I love spending time with my family whenever we get the chance. Much laughter and love is always part of my time with my family and students! I am in charge of running the summer sparklers program each summer. Each year it is a fun filled program and I look forward to it every year. The teachers and I work hard to make the program the success that it is every year. My free time is spent with my husband and friends, traveling and finding great deals is what I enjoy when I get the chance!

Classroom Information

Week of October 16th- October 20th

This is our Encores schedule for each week:

Monday- Music

Tuesday & Thursday- Gym——Please be sure your child comes prepared with sneakers .  If your daughter is taking gym they MUST wear shorts under their uniform.  Boys can wear their gym shorts, school shorts or pants.  Everyone should wear their gym shirt.

Wednesday- Library- All Library books are due on this day.

Friday-Art- All children need an art smock—Old parent t-shirts work best

Super Kids program is a great program that encourages reading, writing, spelling, and phonics.  This past weeks question words Who, What, When, Where, and Why will be part of this weeks words again because I feel the kids need to continue to work on spelling them and using them in sentences.  We will incorporate these words and Halloween this week.  Be on the look out for one of this week’s homework assignments.

Please be sure to check your child’s agenda daily.  Homework is written in it daily.    Also, be sure to check over your child’s homework to make sure that it is neat and their best effort.  Always encourage their best.  Your child should always be responsible for their daily work.

October Scholastic book club orders are due by Tuesday, October 17th.  If you need more time just let me know.

Please email me one fun thing you would like me to know about your child.  I need to make sure I have everyone’s correct email address.

Thank you!!!
