Transportation concerns!

Send a note to explain any changes in transportation after school. For example, children need a note to give permission for riding a different bus or to go home with a friend, relative or neighbor.

 

 Special Announcement

 I am willing to meet and/or talk with any parent at any time, just let me know.  We are a team and this is your child's education.
 
Winter Recess: We will go outside for recess as often as possible.
 
The temperature is expected to be above 25 degrees.  Dress your child accordingly!
 
 
Read with your child on a daily basis.  You can read to them as it is important for them to hear quality reading.  Pick out books of interest for your child.  Reading needs to be fun.
 
Math facts should also be practiced regularly for sums and differences to and from 20.          Practice skip counting by 2, 5, 10 starting with any number.  Count backward.
