TO 1ST GRADE

Welcome

Harrington.jpg

Hello! My name is Camille Harrington, and I am so excited to be your First grade teacher this year! This will be my 4th year at Ascension Lutheran School, in as many positions. I started out as an Extended Care team member during the 2019-2020 school year, a long term substitute in 2021-2022, and was the MakerSpace teacher for this past 2022-2023 school year. 

 

I am a native of Thousand Oaks, attending schools in CVUSD and graduating from Thousand Oaks High School in 2017. After high school I went to California Lutheran University, where I graduated in 2021 with a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Educational Studies. In May I graduated from Pepperdine University's Graduate School of Education and Psychology with a Master of Arts in Teaching and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I am passionate about learning and growing!

Additionally, I have a very close-knit family who I spend much of my time with. I am an avid reader who loves to spend time outdoors, traveling, and trying new things.

I am so excited to be your First Grade teacher this year! 

Feel free to contact me at any time at: charrington@alschool.org

RESOURCES

We are using Class Dojo this year! I am so excited to be able to send pictures and updates about our class through Class Dojo. I highly recommend downloading the app on your phone, it’s the easiest way to stay connected. 

HOMEWORK

Homework will be sent home at the start of each week in a packet. The packets must be returned each Friday, or an otherwise specified date!

EXTRAS

Star of the Week: Every student will get the chance to be our "star" of the week during the school year. Stars are chosen at random and will receive a fun poster to decorate and share with the class during their week! More details will be shared in person regarding this exciting activity. 

 

Birthdays: We would love to celebrate your student's special day! For students with summer birthdays, they have the option to celebrate on their half birthday or in June before the end of the school year.
