For Parents

for parents

Winter:  We love fresh air in the winter, but it's cold outside.  Please make sure your child wears a warm, winter coat, gloves, and a hat.

Reflection Sheets: Your child's weekly schoolwork will be sent home on Fridays. Schoolwork which I feel is important to save will be kept in school. Stapled to the first paper will be a “Weekly Reflection Sheet” that discusses areas your child is proud of (from the past week) and goals for the upcoming week. Parents are asked to review the attached work with the child and sign the paper. The student will return just the Reflection Sheet to school on Monday. These reflections are a valuable way of keeping you informed on a weekly basis.

Ask Questions: If you have any questions or concerns, then please feel free to call or email me at any time. I welcome all concerns, ideas, and feedback that affect your child and/or our class. If something is not working, I are more than willing to talk.

Homework: You should expect that your child will have homework everyday, Monday through Thursday. You will always find the homework assignments written on the homework planner, which is kept in the homework folder. It will go home 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 please help if it is necessary. If you notice that your child is not able to do an assignment on his or her own, please send in a note. I will contact you if your child is falling behind or turning in poor work. 

Snack: All students may bring a fresh fruit or vegetable and water bottle  to school everyday. Please also give me a heads up at least a day ahead of time if your child is planning to bring a treat for his or her birthday.
