Grade 1 Welcome Letter

Dear Grade 1 Families,


Hello and welcome to the 2015-2016 school year at IICS. My name is Andrea Spackman and I will be your Music and Physical Education Specialist this year. I am very excited to be teaching your child and will have the opportunity to work with each student very closely this year.


Below I have listed the PE and Music schedule for the week. In addition, you will find a brief summary of information for each subject area that may help you and your family prepare for classes this school year.


Weekly Schedule



Music & PE











Our focus in Early Years through Grade 1 Music is the exploration of musical genres, styles, and activities through organized music play. This involves developing individual singing, listening, and rhythmic skills, as well as practicing the use classroom instruments.



During Physical Education classes, students will be exposed to a number of different learning environments including indoor and outdoor spaces.

Please prepare your child for PE days by outfitting them with:

  • Comfortable clothing (loose fitting, athletic, weather appropriate)
  • Athletic shoes
  • Water Bottle
  • *Hat (during warm weather months)

*Hats are optional but may help when we go outside for lessons on sunny days


To find out more about curriculum information, parent resources, portfolio documents, and more, please check out our class website


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email. Thank you and I look forward to a wonderful year working with you and your child at IICS.
