the year by the parents and/or teacher.
Email/Voicemail - Each teacher has a school email address and voicemail. Please feel
free to use either to contact me, but please also allow up to 48 hours for an email
response and 24 hours for voicemail. I will try my best to respond much sooner than
that, but the school day (7:45am - 3:30pm) is full and I may not get to see/hear the
message right away.
Notes - A written note is the quickest and best form of communication. Folders are
checked every morning and sent home every afternoon. Please use this not only as
a homework folder, but as a communications folder as well.
Teacher Web Page - Please make a habit of checking my teacher web page on a weekly
basis. This is important information pertaining to our classroom and your child. This
does not replace the school webpage, so please check both on a regular basis for
Kindergarten and school information.
Each child will have one folder that will come home daily. The behavior calendar, homework, and any other classroom or school communications will be included in this folder. Please check it everyday.
Homework is minimal in Kindergarten. Homework will formally begin in October and will come home in a WEEKLY packet on Fridays. These activities can be completed at anytime throughout the week and will be due the following Friday.
If your child is purchasing hot lunch, you must fill out the MONTHLY calendar that will be sent home at the beginning of the month with their hot lunch selection for each day. We need to have a record of what the children will be getting on a daily basis so their is no confusing which choice was selected. This will help our youngest students (and their teachers!) in the lunchroom.
The acronym S.T.A.R. will be used for those times when someone is stressed or upset. It stands for Smile; Take a deep breath, And, Relax. We will try to be S.T.A.R.s in these situations!
O.W.L. of the Week:
Each child in the classroom will have a turn being the O.W.L. of the Week (Outstanding Wise Learner) and the order has already been selected randomly. Children will bring home a note when it is their turn and will get to do various fun activities throughout the week, including having a Mystery Reader....someone from the family will get to come in (a surprise) and read a book to the entire class.
