Welcome "Bach" to school! This is going to be an exciting year!!!
Friday: I am very pleased to be your child's teacher this year. Students were able to go to classes on Friday and we had a wonderful day getting to know each other. We made name tags for our desks and began a writing project to share about ourselves. We also went outside and did some group work for math in the field. I sent home a brief newsletter Friday as well. If for some reason it did not reach you, I've included a copy on the post below.
Lockers: I have assigned students lockers, they are just outside the gym doors. Until our locker name tags are ready, I have made Owl name tags so students remember which locker is theirs.
Please feel free to pick up your child outside their lockers or even outside the main doors on this side of the building. I know the hallways get very crowded!
This week: A detailed newsletter will be sent home soon, however I thought you'd appreciate knowing our gym days are Wed. and Fri. beginning this week. Students will need proper running shoes on this day.
Library: Times are still being scheduled however we will have a library orientation time this week. Students will not be bringing home any books just yet.
Communication: Students will have agendas this year. They have not yet been delivered to classes but I do expect this week we will receive them. This will be the main form of communication. You will find newsletters, spelling words, homereading books and any notes from me written in this agenda. Please look for them soon!
Spelling/Home reading: We will begin our spelling program and formal home reading recording next week (Sept.17) when the agendas are up and running.
Special Helper: This will begin next week as well. Families will receive a calendar so that students can plan for their special day. More info coming home soon on this!
Final Note: I am excited to get to know my new students and families this week, Please feel free to stop in and say hello. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask or send me a note, I'm happy to respond.
