Welcome to Mrs. Duss' First Grade Class!




Welcome to First Grade!  My name is Leanne Duss and it is my pleasure to welcome your child to my classroom for a wonderful year of learning.  I am thrilled to be teaching Grade 1 at Heloise Lorimer School for a second year.  It is going to be an incredible year filled with exciting adventures, laughter and many new learning experiences!

Our classroom will be directed toward meeting the needs of both students and the school community. Your child's values, experiences, interests, abilities, and learning style with help inform the learning environment.

I look forward to meeting you, the parents and guardians, as we build a collaborative relationship to ensure your child has a happy and successful year!

Parent Tips

A family atmosphere prevails at our school with the education of your child being a shared responsibility.  We encourage your interest in what your child does each day and welcome your involvement in the classroom, school council and at home.

  1. Please remind your child to practice their home reading on a regular basis.
  2. Please remind your child to practice their counting and number recognition.
  3. Please initial your child's agenda daily.
  4. Sight words are a necessary part of literacy. Help your child become a better reader by practicing their sight words and encourage them to use them when writing sentences.
  5. Check out the Learn Alberta website for learning activities to do at home.
