Welcome to kindergarten at Batesville Elementary and welcome to our classroom
family. My name is Vicki Wolfe. The kids call me “Ms. Vicki”. I am very
excited to be your child’s teacher! Get ready for a great year that will end
with your child reading and writing, adding and subtracting, and so much
more! But most of all, my goal is for your child to gain an excitement about
school and learning. I want him/her to LOVE to read. I want him/her to be
able to make up and solve story problems, and to develop critical thinking
skills to apply to decisions he/she will make now and in the future. I want
him/her to treat others with love and respect that we all desire and deserve.
About me: I truly LOVE teaching kindergarten. I have been teaching
kindergarten here at Batesville Elementary School for 20 years—but, please
don’t worry about me being “burned-out”. I still have that excitement and
passion for teaching children, and most importantly, the energy to get it
done. Your child will always be treated the way I want and expect others to
treat my own children. I am married to Chris Wolfe and we have two
children. Austin is a sophomore at Northwest College. Tori Beth is a 9th
grader at South Panola High School. My teaching partner is Ms. Pam Hudson.
We have worked together for 12 years. She is wonderful. Ms. Pam and I make
a great team. You can reach me at home at 563-1649, or at school at 563-
4596. My home/cell phone is 563-1649. My email is email@example.com.
My planning time is 9:20 – 9:55 each day.
I believe school-home communication is the key to a positive experience.
Each day we will send home a folder with a behavior calendar. You will be
able to see each day how your child’s day went. You will need to sign the
behavior sheet in this folder daily. (Attached you will find a note about
our school-wide discipline policy.) On Mondays I will send home a weekly
newsletter detailing the coming week’s activities, any homework your child
needs to complete, words to read, skills to practice, etc. This folder is
where we will look for any notes from home/lunch money/completed homework.
Homework is meant to help you practice with your child what we are doing each
day in class. It is very important that you encourage your child to do
his/her best and complete/return the homework on time. If at any time you
have concerns about the homework, please feel free to give me a call.
SNACKS & WATER: Each day we will have snack time. Last year many parents
sent packaged snacks for the whole class. This worked out great, because
some children didn’t bring snack. Examples of good snacks would be graham
crackers, cereal, grapes, apples, or any type of fruit. Please refrain from
high sugar snacks such as cakes and cookies. We will be drinking lots of
water. Last year parents took turns sending cases of water. I may ask that
you do that again this year. I have a good-sized refrigerator to keep the
Thank you for the precious gift of your child you are entrusting me with this
year. I promise to love and care for our new classroom family with all my
heart and to teach them to the very best of my
abilibty Ms. Vicki
