You are cordially invited to be
a partner in your child’s education.
Stay-Tuned: Ask your child what he or she is studying, and look in the take home folder every night. The folder is where you will find the newsletters and notes that are sent home, as well as any homework that needs to be completed. The weekly newsletter will help you keep up with important happenings in our classroom. I will also send home progress reports or make phone calls if I feel that your child is not progressing as expected.
Ask Questions: If you have any concerns or are wondering why something is happening, please feel free to call or email me at any time. I welcome all concerns, ideas, and feedback that affect your child or our classroom. If something is not working, I am more than willing to talk. I welcome all feedback!
Homework: You should expect that your child will have some type of homework most everyday. I encourage you to set up with your child a scheduled time for homework each day. Students should be able to do most assignments independently, but do help if it is completely necessary. If you notice that your child is not able to do an assignment on his or her own, please send a note or jot a note to me on the assignment. I will contact you if your child is falling behind or turning in poor work.
Snack: All students may bring a nutritious snack and a bottle of water to school everyday. Please do not send water bottles that have twist-off caps. Please also give us a heads up at least a day ahead of time if your child is planning to bring a treat for his or her birthday.
Arrival Time: I also would like to request that students arrive at school by 8:15.
