2014 -2015

This year, Koontz is going paperless. Among other things, this means you will have fewer papers...fewer fliers to sort through as you and your child unpack their book bag each night. I, along with the school, plan to communicate with you more and more through your phone and computers.


www.smore.com is a recently adopted program that will allow me to send you information about what is happening in the school, in our classroom, with your child quickly and easily. If you are receiving this message, you are in the system and prepared to communicate. Yeah! We will learn more how this will work during Open House. See you all there!

Getting Ready To Begin...

There are a few things that you can do to get us off to a grand start.

1. Practice spelling those spelling words from last year.

2. Dust off your writing skills by writing about your summer. (Prize waiting for all that bring

this writing in on the first day of school.

3. Practice writing your numbers..1 - 100. (Yes, I said to 100.)

4. Start going to bed earlier. (I know we have all been on different schedules over our

break. It is important that we are well rested as soon as we return.)
