Dear 1st Grade Families,
With fall comes chilly weather. Please send your child to school with a jacket every day. Our first recess is at 9:00 in the morning and a lot of times, there is still a nip in the air. We want to keep everyone healthy. Thank you!
Our first field trip of the year is on Monday, Oct. 16th. We will be outdoors for a couple of hours. Please dress your child for the weather. It will be an out-of-uniform day.
There will not be any homework or spelling words for the week of Oct. 16th. I have posted the words for the week of Oct. 23rd.
MEA break is from Oct. 18 – 20. There will not be any school on those days.
A pumpkin book report is due on Oct. 27th. Directions are attached to the report. If you are unable to buy a pumpkin for the craft, have your child draw a pumpkin and make it into a character from there. Otherwise, every child brought home a pumpkin from our field trip on Oct. 16th and that would be a great pumpkin to use 🙂
- Please make sure that homework is always completed in pencil unless if coloring is requested.
- Please no fidget spinners, Pokemon cards, or pencil sharpeners
- If your child is sick and will not be attending school or is gone for any other reason, please e-mail me (Lconry@epiphanymn.org) AND call the Health Office. It is important to contact both as if I am not contacted, I have to ask the Health Office if they have heard from families yet. Thank you!

A Little Bit about Myself
There is nothing better than growing up in a house in the country covered with trees and a creek running through the backyard. Peace and privacy….Well, except for when the occasional car drives down the dirt road. I am a country girl through and through. I loved playing with all of the animals and insects: dead or alive. An imagination thrives when you have an outdoor palate to create and explore.
I grew up in a loving household with my parents and two older sisters. We attended mass together as a family and my mom taught our 2nd grade religion classes for many years. I sang in the youth choir, was an altar server from 4th grade – 10th grade, and then became an Eucharistic Minister after my Confirmation in 10th grade. Attending Catholic Youth Camp (CYC), Discipleship Week, multiple Steubenville retreats, TEC retreats, and mission trips were some of the best memories I had growing up. This is all thanks to a strong faith and a family who openly shared that faith.
Family is my life. My supportive family is such a blessing. I look up to each person for different reasons.
Mr. Conry: My husband has taught me how to relax and enjoy life all while being unafraid to try new adventures and to follow every single one of my dreams. He is my support and comfort. I’ve learned how to look at the world in so many different and positive ways due to his career and constant drive to further educate himself.
Dad: My dad just retired after teaching for 33 years. I’ve gone to his classroom almost every year since I was a little girl. It started off with ‘Bring Your Daughter to Work Day’ and morphed into me assisting in his classroom. Every time I go into his classroom, I just sit there and watch him transform into such a caring, supportive, loving, joking, serious, everything kind of teacher. Hands down, he is the teacher I hope to be someday.
Mom: A mother is a figure of love without a doubt. Besides that, my mom is a figure of selflessness. She has always gone out of her way to help those in need and to go above and beyond to make sure that every person she comes across realizes how important they are. In a world filled with so much negativity, it is a blessing to have that ray of sunshine at all times. She exudes God’s love and lives his message.
Sarah: My oldest sister is strong. She is a protector. Standing up for what is right is not always easy, but she makes it look that way. I have always admired her confidence and wished for that strength myself. As the little sister, I always looked up to her as the leader of the pack, and that hasn’t changed. Sarah is my rock.
Alison: Being the middle sister probably isn’t that easy. However, I know what skill-set it gave her: intent listener. You know how difficult it can be to find that one person you can trust and tell anything to? That one person who won’t judge you? That is Alison. She sits and listens patiently to everything you have to say and knows just what to say to make everything better. She may be gifted in words, but it is her ears that truly do the talking.
I have been blessed to have my family expanded with two brother-in-laws, two nieces, and two nephews.
All of these people have changed me for the better. My hope is to take what each of them has gifted me with, and bring each of those gifts to your child.
