First Grade



Hello First Grade Parents,


My name is Ms. Ruiz and I am going to be your child’s first grade teacher this year.  I am so excited that your child is going to be in my class.  We are going to learn a lot and have fun!


This will be my 9th year of teaching. This year I was able to achieve my own personal goal of obtaining a Masters degree in Education from Mount Saint Mary's University. I also obtain a Bachelor's in Liberal Studies from California State University, Fullerton.


First grade is an exciting time as children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning.  I am looking forward to a very productive and fun year with your child.   I will strive to make each day a fun, learning and enriching process for your child.  However, I need your help in making this year as successful as it can be!  I believe that you and I are a team working together to help your child develop spiritually, academically, and emotionally.  You are the most important person in your child’s life, and you are their primary teacher.  I know if we work together and communicate, your child will have a successful year!


If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me.


God Bless,

Ms. Cynthia Ruiz
