Meet the Teacher
Transcript of Meet the Teacher
My husband, John, and I both grew up
in the Northeast Columbia community.
We both attended Richland Two schools.
Our daughter Merritt will be four in November.
My parents and younger brother also live in Columbia. My mom is a teacher at Blythewood High and my brother Colin is a senior at Blythewood High School. We have two Yorkies, Lucy and Shag. On the weekends our family enjoys cheering on the Carolina Gamecocks, relaxing by the pool and cooking out with family.
In 2009, I graduated from The
University of South Carolina with a B.A. in Early Childhood
Education. I have had the opportunity to work in many Richland 2 schools.
Thanks For Coming!
Scholastic Book Clubs
This year, the district will be using a Kindergarten report card which reflects the new and updated state standards. The report card is very detailed and should give you a very clear understanding of where your child is each quarter. First graders are assessed in the areas of math, reading and social skills.

It is developmentally appropriate for a Kindergartener to be spending approximately 10 minutes a night on homework.
You will see math and reading within your child's homework each week.
In our classroom, I give students a great deal of positive reinforcement to assist students in staying on task and doing the right thing.
Students are expected to follow school and classroom procedures at all times
Parents will be contacted regarding their behavior when necessary
Growth Mindset VS
The Richland Two Board of Trustees does not allow any form of bullying.
Bullying is unfair and one-sided. It happens when someone keeps hurting, frightening, threatening, or leaving someone out on purpose.
Not every bad behavior is bullying. Bullying is a behavior that is sufficiently severe, and may often be repeatedly carried out over time.
Monday's Town Hall
During your students year in Kindergarten, they will be given 3 separate assessments to asses their progress.
-DRA...3 times a year
-EYCBM...3 times a year

We only accept 1 mode of transportation per child.
Change in transportation:
(1) a note for the teacher or
(2) call the office before 2:15
*No emails please.
**Please note: Changing transportation increases the safety risk for your student. It allows room for confusion to occur.
Children cannot be released after 2:15 per district procedure.
Walkers are unsupervised once they leave campus
Parent/ Teacher Conference
I will schedule parent conferences throughout the year
September and February (November and May if needed).
I will meet with every parent at the beginning & middle of the
school year Conferences will be scheduled before school, during my
planning time, and after school.
Sign up sheet today!
We will go on 2 field trips this year.
Field Trips we have gone in the past include:
1. Pumpkin Patch
4. Columbia Ballet
We have openings on our School Improvement
Council (SIC) this year. This is an excellent
opportunity to learn more about our school and to share your ideas. The SIC meets on Thursdays once a month
at 5:00pm. If you are interested in serving,
please let your child’s teacher know.
What is it?
Federal legislation mandating types of food given to
students during school (nutritional guidelines)
When is this applicable?
180 days of school
-Parents can provide ANY foods for their own child (only)
-Prohibits school, PTO, parents from providing food not meeting the nutritional guideline requirements to the entire class or other students.
-Federal Audits will occur
-If violations are founded, Richland Two could loose $7 Million in federal funding
How will Smart Snacks impact me?
You may provide any food items for your child only.
You (or the school) may not provide foods for other children or
the class unless the food item falls within the
Federal Nutritional Requirements (must be pre-approved by Mrs. Eubanks)
Suggestions- instead of cupcakes for birthdays, bring non-food
goodie bags or pencils for each child in the class
Interpreting the requirements...
The District is in contact with the USDA for specific guidelines, suggested food items, and food recommendations and practices that that meet the Smart Snacks Federal guideline requirements.
In an abundance of caution, until we hear otherwise, we will be unable to allow parents to provide any food items for students other than their own without pre-approval from Mrs. Eubanks.
The State Department will be asking for exemptions for SC.
As new information is shared, we will keep you informed.
Our PTO sponsors the following events and
Bingo with Grandparents
Painting with Moms
Game Night with Dads
Teacher Appreciation Week
Please contact our PTO Volunteer Coordinator, Kenya Smith, at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
