Welcome to 4M parents and guardians! I look forward to getting to know you throughout the year. This school year should be an exciting one for you and your child. Jefferson Elementary School has made a few curriculum changes to the fourth grade over the summer and I am excited about the learning opportunities they present.
The most dramatic change is our new field trip to Springfield, IL which we will be taking in the Spring. We will need plenty of parent chaperones for this trip as well as a few others that we will be taking throughout the year to enhance the students curriculum. Your child will be coming home with a volunteer information packet during the first few weeks of school. In this packet there will be a list of all the field trips and classroom activities that volunteers will be need for, as well as a sign up sheet. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.
Also, if you wish to send any treats in with your child for a birthday or another special occasion, I ask that you give me at least a days notice. This is due to the increasing number of food allergies our students have.
I am looking forward to a great year with your children!
