First Grade
    My name is Mrs. Heather Menduke. I am teaching first grade in Room 4 for the 2021-2022 school year. This year I am celebrating my 18th year in the Oakland Public School system. I began my teaching career in another Bergen County district and spent 18 years there, teaching second and third grade. Since joining Oakland, I have spent my tenure in first and second grade.
    Please be sure to check your child's folder for homework each night. Most nights there will be a reading/writing/spelling assignment and a math assignment to be completed and returned the next day. Please make sure to sign your child's homework each night if you had to give a good amount of assistance and place it back into their folder.
