Welcome! Here are a few business items I believe will help us become a dynamic, considerate, hard-working school family.
Birthdays: Birthdays are super exciting! However, due to food allergies, cost, and scheduling, we will not be having any birthday parties in class. We will sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to recognize your child’s special day. Private invitations may be placed in take-home folders before or after school.
Coding: Students (with their headphones) meet in the computer lab each Wednesday from 3-4pm for a free coding class that runs until Spring Break.
Homework: The third graders in Room 17 must read a minimum of 20 minutes per day. Being read to, using online reading programs, reading traditional books, using an e-reader, and reading out loud all count towards this goal. Just read as much as possible!
If your child brings home any homework, it means the work was not completed in class.
Snack: Children are encouraged to bring a healthy, portable snack to eat outside during our daily10:25 Brain Break. Refillable water bottles are a great way to stay hydrated.
Volunteers: Volunteers are a marvelous addition to our team. You are welcome anytime in Room 17, or join us on field trips. Sign-up for a time slot or activity posted outside Room 17. All volunteers must have a current background check. Forms in office.
I am truly thrilled about our year together! If you have any questions or concerns, hopes and dreams, please feel free to stop in before or after school, or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
