Important Items for Planet Dixon

Mrs. Dixon's 3rd Grade Classroom

Dear Parents,

Thank you to all those who could make it to our BTSN last night! If you couldn't make it, no worries! Please review the presentations below so you know some important class information. Also, PLEASE CHECK YOUR CHILD'S H.W. FOLDER TODAY for paperwork that needs signatures.


All parents, please make sure I have the following signed and returned by Friday. Thank you!!


  1. Green SMUSD Annual Notification signature page (parent and student signed)- very important! Here is the link to accessing the documents so you know what you're signing: http://smusd.org/Page/14490
  2. Photo Permission slip for Donor's Choose (My project for 3 iPads in our class was funded by generous donations from donorschoose.org. I now need to compile a thank you package with some pictures of how we're using them)
  3. BYOD (Bring your own device) permission slip if interested (more info coming, just wanting to get a general idea if our class will pilot)
  4. Class Dojo- make sure to sign up! See below.

Communication between School and Home: Class Dojo has gotten better!!

Parents that signed up for Remind last night...I just saw that Class Dojo has added a Broadcasting and messaging feature just like it!! Excited to use these two tools in one...monitor your child's day/behavior AND get messages from me (entire class or individual). Sign up with your phone number for texts, email, or both!


Parents who have not signed up, please do so by following the directions on the Class Dojo permission slip in BTSN packet. If you need another one, please let me know.


This will be an important communication between school and home and great way to send out quick reminders. (Eventually after all the BTS craziness, I'll only be emailing a newsletter on Fridays...sorry about all the emails ;)

Important: All SEES room volunteers must attend a meeting before they work with students. The first meeting is this Friday right after Flag Salute. Please try to make it so you can start working with students asap :)
