Back to School Night
Transcript of Back to School Night
This will be my seventeenth year of teaching.
I have taught:
Optional Extended Day Kindergarten
School starts at 9:00 and ends at 3:30 Monday-Thursday. Friday hours are 9:00-1:15. Please have your child at school on time. Students should not arrive before 8:30 and are expected to remain outside until the bell rings, weather permitting, unless they have a parent note. All children must be checked out through the office if leaving early.
Third grade follows the McGraw-Hill Wonders Reading Program. It is a comprehensive reading/ language arts program.
Weekly spelling lists will be sent home after students take a pretest. Students will receive differentiated lists based on the pretest. They will also do activities with spelling words throughout the week. Spelling tests will be given each Friday.
Third through fifth graders will be using the Thrive Math program. Some of our math goals for 3rd grade are to:
*Fluently add and subtract within 1,000
*Fluently multiply and divide within 100
Homework will be sent home each Monday in their Homework Folder and should be returned the following Monday. Homework will include spelling words, a fluency passage, and a weekly reading calendar where students will record reading minutes.
Your child is expected to read at least 20 minutes a night. Please record their reading time on their reading calendar. Prizes and awards will be given in class and by grade level for students who fill in and return their reading calendars.
We will celebrate each child’s birthday or their half birthday (for summer birthdays). Your child may bring treats on his or her birthday, but please remember that all treats must be store bought and are optional.
Please do not send treats containing nuts!
SweeTart of the Week
During one week of the school year your child will be spotlighted as our “SweeTart.” During that week, we will hang up their pictures and “We Want to Know” sheet. Each day they will participate in a special activity. They will also be my special helper and get special privileges.
SEP’s will be held August 30-31st from 4-7 PM, November 13-16th and February 27th- March 2nd. During the SEP’s in November and February, school will dismiss at 1:15 all week. I will send more information as the time approaches.
Minimum school days are used for teacher trainings. They will be the following days:
Aug 28, Sep 25, Nov 3, Dec 11, Jan 29, and Feb 26.
School will be released at 1:15 on those days.
I will be sending out periodic reminders through text messaging. This app keeps your numbers private. To receive these reminders text @50057 in the message (you do need the @ sign) to 81010.
Seesaw is a simple way for teachers and students to record and share what’s happening in the classroom. Each student gets their own digital journal and will add things to it, like photos, videos, and assignments. Parents will need to download the Seesaw App and then scan the student QR code provided.

I really try to focus on the positive behavior in my classroom. I will be using the Class Dojo App in order for students to earn points for positive behavior. On Fridays, they may use their points to buy something out of the treasure box or to buy a classroom privilege. The classroom also has a marble jar to fill in order to earn a class party.
However, we do need to have consequences. I will speak to students privately about the undesired behavior and inform them of the consequences. The first time I speak to them will be a warning. The next is a five minute loss of recess. The third is a ten minute loss of recess. If there is a fourth offense during the day, the child will use my phone to make a phone call home.
Please do not allow your child to bring toys, games, cell phones, money or trading cards to school.
Everyday will be a fresh start to a better day!
Students will use Chromebook computers daily in the classroom. We will discuss internet safety often and monitor usage carefully. Students will need to be responsible for their own headphones and computer
