         Welcome to 1A, I am your teacher, Mrs. Ortman. I am so excited to be your teacher for the 2020-2021 school year.  Here you will find important information that will help you throughout the school year.  Click the links to the left as this will help you access the homework site, spelling words and other important messages. You can always reach out to me with any questions you may have. I am looking forward to a creative and fun learning school year.
