Welcome Back to School!

September 6, 2018

Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is a pleasure to have your child in my class! I am looking forward to a great year, full of exciting challenges.
There will be many forms sent home on the first few days, please be sure to review them and return the ones that require your attention as soon as possible.
Your child will receive an Agenda where they will glue a copy of their homework. Please check the Agenda daily. This is a great place for us to communicate. I will also check it daily for notes from home. Homework will usually be 2 or 3 written assignments as well as studying. This should take approximately 30 minutes. I also ask that your child read for 20 minutes per night and note the book and time on their Reading Log. The log is due on the 1st day of each month. It counts as a Reading test grade.
Reading tests will be on Fridays (with the exception of very short weeks). Math and Fundations tests can fall on any day, but I will give you and your child notice beforehand. I will send home graded papers on Monday. They will be in your child’s homework folder. Please sign the cover sheet and any below proficient papers and return them on Tuesday. You may keep any of the other papers.

I hope to meet you on Back-to-School Night on September 11th at 6:30.
