I am looking forward to a wonderful year with your children. It is so wonderful to see your children come to school excited to learn. Please encourge your child to read nightly. Reading on a daily basis will help improve fluency and comprehension. MyOn and RazKids will be available to the children for nightly reading.
This year I will be focusing on math fact fluency with the class. As we get into three digit addition and subtraction, children should know all basic facts automatically. Flash card are most helpful and should be practiced nightly to improve fact fluency.
Please review your child's homework sheet and assignments each night. Both papers should be signed by a parent nightly. 20 minutes of reading is required.
Please review the monthly school newsletter. Important dates and activites are reported each month. Dress down day is the first Friday of each month. Children should bring $1.00 if they do not want to wear their uniform that day. Snack sale is the second Friday of each month. Snacks are $1.00.
If you would like your child to celebrate his/her birthday in class, please send me a note letting me know which day you would like to send in cupcakes.
Parental involvement helps the childs success in school. Please take an active part in your child's education. If you ever have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
