First Down!

We made it through our first week of school!

We had a bumpy first week of school, but we made it! As we progress and get to know each other better hopefully the ride will smooth out. We hope the you and your child enjoyed the first week and are ready for many more with us! Please don't hesitate to call, text, email, or even visit the classroom anytime to see your child or to speak with one of us.

We will share what's happening in our classroom in a weekly newsletter. We will send you a link to view the newsletter to the email you provided as well as through our Remind system. If you prefer to have a print copy sent home in your child's folder, please let us know.

Personal Hygiene

We all want to look and smell our best each day for school! Please ensure that your child is bathing properly at home and is putting on clean clothes and deodorant each morning!

We understand that some of these items can get expensive, so please let us know if you need assistance supplying your student with supplies for good hygiene. We can help! Communities and Schools offers many items to families in need and can do so discreetly.

What's on the Agenda?


Last week we sent your child home with a folder. This week you will find an agenda in their folder. We will use this folder and agenda to send you quick notes about your child's day if needed or supplies he/she may need as well as sending homework to be completed and returned. At the end of the week, hopefully on Thursdays, we will send home your child's classwork in this folder for you to keep. Please check your child's folder and agenda daily, sign/initial it, and return it. If you need to write us a quick note about your child, this is also where you can do this, either directly on the agenda or a separate paper and place it in the folder whatever is best for you. Thank you for all you do to help your student and our class! We appreciate our parents!

Fall Pictures

Picture Day is here already!

Next Tuesday, September 8, is picture day. Your child should wear his/her uniform shirt to school and may bring a top to change into to have his/her picture made. If your child needs help changing, let us know and we will make sure he/she gets changed for pictures.

You should have received a pay envelope in your child's folder on Monday. If you wish to purchase pictures please return the payment in the envelope prior to picture day.


We will begin going to P.E. this week. If you would like your child to change clothes, please send them some P.E. clothes. We will keep the clothes at school for the week and send them home on Friday to be washed. Please write your child's name on the clothing somewhere and/or send them in a labeled bag. The students change in a locker room in the gym. If your child cannot do this and you would like him/her to change clothes, please let us know so we can make appropriate accommodations. The students will play hard and get sweaty, please make sure he/she wears deodorant each day.


Our tech facilitator is getting everything ready to begin handing out iPads next week to those students that have completed the 3 requirements; the video, the responsible use signature sheet and the payment.

We will be using the iPads to do classwork and homework this year! Please, if you are able to get your child an iPad, do so ASAP!
