Miss Glazier & Ms. Matthews 2015-2016 Welcome to Open House!!
Goals for the Year To give your child the academic and social skills needed to progress to 6 th grade, and BEYOND! To provide a supportive, fun and encouraging classroom environment, all while helping them become responsible, self-aware, and confident. To discover new interests and provide multiple opportunities to challenge your child. To encourage a LOVE of reading, and learning, that lasts a LIFETIME!
Classroom Community Our classroom is a community… Although each classroom does have separate rules, here are some basic guidelines we follow: Be responsible Be honest Keep your hands to yourself Treat others the way you want to be treated Always do your best! Keep your eyes and ears open…raise your hand! Have fun!
Just a few things… The students are allowed in the building at 8:45 a.m. If your child is not in the classroom by the time the second bell rings (9:15), they will need to check in at the school office before coming to class. School starts at 9:15 a.m. Check this out… If your child arrives (and gets to work!) at 8:45 everyday this year, they will receive 5,400 minutes or 90 hours of extra education! If they arrive at 9:00, they will receive 2,700 minutes or 45 hours of extra education! WOW!
Just a few things continued… Please send in a note if your child’s transportation changes, otherwise they will have to go home using their regular transportation. Also if they are going to be picked up early, please send me an e-mail so we can ensure they will be ready for you. The best way to contact us is email [firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com Check our website OFTEN! Please sign up on Class Dojo to get reports on your child’s behavior!
Just a few things continued… Birthdays: store bought goodies ONLY – preferably something easy to eat, and with as little sugar as possible!
