Welcome to First Grade! I am Ms. Markgraf and I cannot wait to see all of your faces again this year! I am very excited to start off this year with new learning and lots of growth. I am a Colorado native and grew up in Johnstown. While going to school at the University of Northern Colorado, I started volunteering and doing work in Greeley, where I fell in love with the culture and environment of the schools here. Throughout this year we will learn to become fluent readers, rockin' writers, and will learn many skills to become mathematicians! A great tool we use for communication is our Remind app. Get ready to S.O.A.R this school year as we take off through first grade!
