  • 1st Grade
I began my teaching career by teaching one year at St. Francis. Then in 1971 St. Mary and St. Francis consolidated and became Notre Dame School of DePere. I am happy to say that this will be my 48th year at Notre Dame. My goal is to help each student to believe in themselves and to blossom into confident learners. My husband and I have one son and two grandsons. My hobbies are spending time with my family, reading, working on crafts, going for walks and cheering on the Packers and the Brewers.

Welcome to Mrs. Cramer’s First Grade

First grade is a very important and challenging year for your child. Together we can make it an exciting, happy, and rewarding year. Our school theme this year is: SMILE – “See Miracles in Life Everyday.”

Throughout the year I will encourage the students to praise God as we work with the Spirit, and celebrate with one another – spiritually, academically, and socially. I will remind them to follow God’s example as we care for ourselves and others. Together we will celebrate:  SMILE – “See Miracles in Life Everyday .”

Each morning along with saying our morning prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance we will say our Friendship Pledge and our Mission Statement.

Try your best in all you do-
Reading, math, and sports, too.
Be a leader every day.
By what you do and what you say.
Be a good sport, have some fun,
Show respect and value to everyone!

 Mission Statement:

       Notre Dame School of De Pere develops young minds into future leaders of the Catholic Faith and the community.

Homework

   Homework in first grade for the first quarter consists of independent reading books and practicing sight words. Your child will bring home their independent reading book in a Ziploc bag and should be returned in that bag. There will also be a Parent Comment sheet enclosed with each book. Please make sure to sign the sheet and give me your input. We will have weekly spelling tests starting the middle of September. The words will come home on Friday and the test will be on Friday.

Thank you for all your support.
