Classroom Information for Parents

Dear Parents,

 You are cordially invited to be

a partner in your child’s education.


Stay-Tuned:  Ask your child what he or she is studying, and look in the homework folder every night.  The homework folder is where you will find the newsletters and notes that are sent home, as well as any homework that needs to be completed.  Our weekly newsletter will help you keep up with important happenings in our classroom.  We will also send home progress reports or make phone calls if we feel that your child is not progressing as expected.

Ask Questions:  If you have any concerns or are wondering why something is happening, please feel free to call or email us at any time.  We welcome all concerns, ideas, and feedback that affect your child or our classroom.   If something is not working, we are more than willing to talk.  We welcome all feedback!

Homework:  You should expect that your child will have some type of homework most everyday.  You will always find the homework assignments written on an assignment log that is kept in the daily homework folder.  It will go home everyday.  We 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 do help if it is completely necessary.  If you notice that your child is not able to do an assignment on his or her own, please send a note or jot a note to us on the assignment.  We will contact you if your child is falling behind or turning in poor work. 

Snack:  All students may bring a nutritious snack and a bottle of water to school everyday.  Please do not send water bottles that have twist-off caps.   Please also give us a heads up at least a day ahead of time if your child is planning to bring a treat for his or her birthday.

Arrival Time:  We also would like to request that students arrive at school no earlier than 8:35.  It is not safe for them to be hanging around or playing on the equipment with no supervision.  We certainly do not want your child to get injured prior to the school day.
