Welcome to Mrs. Vermilion's First Grade Class!

            Hello! I have enjoyed a wonderful summer, and I am so excited for the school year of 2018-2019! First grade is such a wonderful year of growth in children. I am anticipating a fantastic year with my students, in which we learn, grow, and experience new things every day. As I enter my third year teaching at WPS, I grow more and more certain that this is a wonderful community committed to valuable, hands-on, and engaging education to create imaginative, respectful, and innovative life-long learners. I love working with the staff at WPS and doing our best to build a safe and caring environment for our learners.
