Dear Families, 

We have had a wonderful first two months of school! It has been a pleasure watching the students become adept in following new schedules and working with many teachers.  I feel like I have started building relationships with the students and continue getting to know them more and more each day.  I enjoyed visiting Dante's family and hope to connect with more.  I plan on doing more home visits, please let me know if you are interested.  

A few things...

Be Punctual:  It is important that your child arrive each day on time to make the most of their school experience. 
We start school at 7:45am. If your child is late, please make sure they get a pass at the office.

Team Teaching:  I continue to meet with Ms. Hammond and Ms. Brennan on a regular basis to discuss progress and share ideas.  Please feel free to reach out to any of us with questions and concerns, we would love to hear from you.

Stay-Tuned: Check your child's agenda books, if you have a question about homework shoot us an email.  I give homework Monday-Thursday.

Field Trips:  The students loved the trip to the Harvard Museum of Natural History.  We are planning a trip to the Museum of Science on 11/18, we could use your help!

Consent:  We only received a handful of consent forms for media release.  I am sending home another form with hopes to publish students work and/or photos, only for educational purposes.  Please sign and return if you have not already.

Supplies:  It is so important your child has pencils, we are all running very low and could use some more.
Many thanks for the many donations so far, we are all set for cold season!

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call or email me anytime.
