Welcome to First Grade! My name is Reginald Cooper and I will be your child's teacher this year.  I have been teaching first grade since 2003.   I am happily married to Claisha and we have three children Darion, Devon, and Demi.  I am very excited about school this year.  I'm sure that the children will enjoy their first grade year at Horizon.  Welcome all of you who are new to Horizon.  I hope that you will like our school and feel at home.  First Grade is the crucial time to set a strong foundation for further learning.  I am happy to be teaching your child, and I am eager to begin a new first grade year!

Throughout the year I will be communicating with you about activities taking place in our classroom.  You will need to make me aware of any special needs or circumstances concerning your child.  We are beginning an important journey together-the education of your child.  We will need to keep the lines of communication open between home and school.  One way I like to begin this communication is having a weekly newsletter, notes or concerns, can be delivered to and from school from their daily take home folders.
