Happenings Worth Hollering About

News for the Week of August 20th

Off to a Great Start!

I really can't believe that the first week of school has already come and gone. It's hard to believe that just two weeks ago we were all still on summer vacation! I must say though that Nerfy and I are glad to be back, and it's been an absolute pleasure getting to know all of the students and parents of my class.

Just some quick reminders:

-School starts promptly at 7:40am. Any student that shows up after the second bell are considered tardy

-All absences MUST have a note in order to be considered excused. I will do my best to write a note in the agenda saying "We missed you" as a reminder, but it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to send me a note in order to excuse an absence.

-There is to be NO CHECK OUT after 2pm. The is simply to protect every child we have here at Woodland.

-Athletic shoes should be worn on Mondays and Fridays for PE.

-I communicate best through email, but please still feel free to call me if you need to.

-We start switching classes this week, so be on the lookout for things from Ms. Distler.

-My math and science homework is due on Friday. Ms. Distler's reading homework is due everyday.

-Each student is required to blog at least once a week. Blogs should be done by Sunday. If internet access is not available, it is completely fine to do it on a sheet of notebook paper.

-The wiki is where I post homework and classwork. Please visit it often to see what we're up to. :)

-I sent an email out Monday to say hey and that I will be calling at the end of August to set up a conference in September. Please make sure you received this email because if you have not, then I might not have typed in your email address correctly!

-If you ever need anything, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I already feel like my class has grown so much! It's going to be a fantastic year!
