Welcome to 2018-2019 school year! I’m excited about the opportunity to get to know you, and I’m looking forward to a happy and productive school year.
Curriculum areas we will focus on this year include English, Science, History, and Math. The students, specials will be art class in the first semester and swimming in the second semester. When we get to second semester I will send home a reminder concerning bathing suits & towels.
Students are asked to bring a change of clothes to school in case there is an unforeseen issue at some point. If your child needs disposable underpants or wipes, please send them to me as soon as possible. Also, if you would send in a new box of tissues with your child, that would be greatly appreciated.
I do not assign homework other than asking that parents promote independent practices with the student. Allow your child to do as much for themselves as possible, like, personal grooming activities (daily bathing, combing their own hair, brushing teeth, washing hands after using the bathroom, washing face, buttoning, zipping, dressing/undressing, opening their own food products, etc.). All of these practices will help your child to become more independent and self-sufficient which will make their life, and yours, easier today and down the road.
Every school year we have our share of absences do to some type of illness. Although, we encourage all students to come to school each and every day we also know that when they are ill the best place for them is home. This is especially
true when we hit the flu-season…we all know how easy it is to catch a cold. Therefore, I am requesting that if your child has symptoms of the flu or cold (especially, sneezing, coughing, fever, etc.). Please keep them home until their symptoms subside; this is so that they do not pass it on to other students and staff. I realize that colds are most times unavoidable; however, if we all make a conscious effort to take precautions then our chances of staying healthy during these seasons is much better. I thank you for this, in advance!
Studies show that parental involvement in a child’s education is one of the strongest indicators of student achievement. We hope you will make it a priority this year to attend as many school-sponsored events as possible.
If you have any questions or concerns or if you would like to visit our classroom, schedule a conference, or volunteer to help out, you can contact me at 941-255-7440 X 213.
Once again, welcome to the class. Let’s work together to make this the best year ever!
