Mrs. Nation - KF- West Central Elementary August 16 - 20, 2010

We're Off to a Great Start!

I am very proud and honored to be your child's

kindergarten teacher this year. We have gotten off to a

wonderful start in KF this year. We are going to have

so much fun learning to read, write, count, and think!

You will receive this newsletter weekly in your child's

red take-home folder. Please keep it at home for your

reference. I will included important dates and activities

of the class for the week.

I will also be highlighting a different student each

week in the newsletter. When it is your child's week to

be "Student of the Week" I will send home an

information sheet for you to help him/her fill out.

If you have any questions or concerns

please feel free to call me at the school 706-235-8836,

e-mail me at qnation@rcs.rome.ga.us,

or send a note in your child's folder.

All About Mrs. Nation

Mrs. Nation is a native of Calhoun,

Georgia. She graduated from Gordon

Central High School and Berry


She has taught preschool, first grade,

and kindergarten. This is her 8th year

teaching at West Central.

Mrs. Nation lives in

Adairsville with her

husband and their pets--

a cocker spaniel named,

Chester, and a cat named

Miss Prissy.


Our goal at West Central is for all

kindergarten students to read One Million

Words this year. We need your help:

Please read with your child each night and

record the titles of the books you read on

the book log that is in their red take home

folder. Also practice their sight word list

each night.

Students who fill up

their book logs and learn all

their sight words will receive

recognition at our

Renaissance Awards

ceremonies and get to

attend a special reading



Please be sure to attend our Open House on

Tuesday, August 17, from 7:00 - 8:30 P.M. This is

a time when you can come by and check out our

classroom and ask me questions about your child's

progress so far in kindergarten. I look forward to

meeting you that night.


I will begin sending homework home in September.

Your child will receive a monthly homework packet

that will stay in their folder until the end of the

month. Please help your child complete

his/her homework. This helps reinforce

what we a learning at school.
