Welcome back students and parents!
I am so excited for this brand new school year and can’t wait to meet all of you. Please bookmark or favorite this web page as I will post important information here and you will find it very benefical to check it often. This web site will contain links to electronic resources to the stories and assignments we complete and other helpful handouts, PowerPoints, or videos.
On the first day of school students will be bringing home a copy of my classroom rules and procedures. The last page of the packet will need to be completed and returned to me. It asks for you to acknowledge that you have read and understand the rules and procedures and also asks for the way that you prefer for me to contact you if needed.
I will also be sending home information about the required reading logs that the students will be completing and that parents or guardians will need to sign each week. Below is the link to that information and a link to a blank reading log incase one gets lost and you need to print out a new one.
