I am back and we are ready to get back on track with a normal schedule and routine. We have been talking a lot about being responsible and respectful in the classroom. With me being out for two weeks, we have had a bumpy start to the year but it is getting better and I know that we are going to continue to have a great school year.
Fall school pictures is Monday, September 27th. Please look for the photo package options to be sent home shortly. You will also have the option to purchase photos after the fact.
If you would like to schedule a Celebration of Life for your child's birthday please contact me ahead of time to schedule. Typically parents bring in photos, one for each year of life, or share a special memory as their child circles the sun X amount of times. Afterwards most people share a treat with the class but this is not required. I schedule these for 3pm any day of the week. Advance notice is appreciated.
Our first field trip has been scheduled for the school year. I apologize for the short notice on this one, the museum just got back to me and their dates are already booked up so we have to jump on this date. We will need 4 adults to go with us, not including myself. We will be going from 1:15-3:15, eating lunch before we depart. This is a walking field trip and the kids will need to dress for appropriate weather. This is a FREE field trip. Yahoo!! We will be watching a short planetarium film on the solar system and then exploring the Imaginarium afterwards. Please email me to let me know if you can attend as a chaperone.
Please try to keep cell phone use to a minimum. If you take any photos, please do not post them to Facebook unless you have consent from the children's parents in the photos.
Your role is to help keep the kids safe; please reinforce the class expectations while on field trips and be a good role model yourself.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. Thank you for your support and understanding while I was away. I am happy to be back and to really dive into our lessons!
Have a great weekend,
