Communication Please check Friday Folders weekly. There will not be a signature page, but you should expect them each week. Please go over the work with your child and return the empty folders on Monday. I will use email and our classroom website to communicate classroom needs or information.

I believe that open communication between parents and teachers is essential to students having a positive educational experience. Please feel free to contact me at any time!
