I firmly believe that school is a triangular partnership and needs all three parts to be a balanced relationship: student, parent and teacher. If one is not participating, the balance is thrown off and not working at full potential. I strongly encourage you to contact me at your earliest convenience if you have a question or concern. I also encourage you to ask your child for information about school, our daily happenings, and what he/she is learning. Taking just a few minutes to talk about school each day can dramatically increase student success. Research shows that students who have involved parents do better academically. Your involvement shows the importance that should be placed on the education of your child. Our partnership in education will move your child that much further ahead!
The first thing I'd like to share with you is our schedule of specials classes. You will notice that Friday says "rotation" due to four specials and five days in the week. That last day will rotate through each of the four specials for the school calendar year. You will see the dates and specials for Friday listed throughout the year. Please note that we will also have library/computer time each week, also. The day and time will be passed along as soon as the schedule is in place.
Monday: Music Rotation Dates:
Tuesday: Art 9/6-11/4 Music
Wednesday: Cultures 11/7-1/27 Art
Thursday: Gym 1/30-3/30 Cultures
Friday: See Rotation 4/26-6/6 Gym
**All specials classes listed above are from 8:50-9:30 a.m.
Lunch break will be daily from 12:15-12:50 with recess PRIOR to lunch.
I look forward to spending the next year of school with your child and you! Here's to a great year!!
