Welcome to Mrs. Gouine's page!

Above is my favorite quote of all time. Reading is my passion. Books can take us places we will never go otherwise. They can also make us feel like we belong. My job as your child's teacher is to foster a love of reading in your children they will carry with them forever.

Please use this website as an opportunity to communicate with me and have a heads up about what goes on in our classroom! If you have any suggestions on how to improve the website PLEASE do not hesitate.

What Are We Working On?

Parents- a green Impact Aid form will be coming home Thursday night. Please check your child's book bag. This form decides how much federal money our district receives. It is important that you read and complete the form following all directions and send it in no later than FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3. There will be school-wide and classroom incentives if 100% are returned by Friday. Thanks!
