Room 10 News

August 29th, 2016

Welcome to 2nd Grade with Mrs. Warner!

A Note from Mrs. Warner...

Hello Parents!


Welcome to Room 10! I am looking forward to meeting you at our Open House on Thursday, August 25th. I will be handing out district paperwork and other forms at the Open House. You may bring any school supply donations that day as well. Feel free to sign up for Remind and fill out the form below before Open House!


I know it can be overwhelming to keep track of everything you need to hand in at the beginning of the school year, so I've made a list below of everything you need to do. See "Things to Do for Room 10" for the list. I hope this helps you keep track of everything! Please let me know if you have any questions.


I'm looking forward to a great school year!


Mrs. Warner

*We certainly understand if this is a financial hardship for you and you are not able to send in all of the materials. If you can only bring in a few, I've underlined the items we need the most!

Dry erase markers (chisel-tip, low/no odor, preferably black)

24-pack crayons

1 one-inch (or 1.5") 3-ring binder with view sleeve cover (any color) (optional, but appreciated!)

Headphones (optional)


Headphones

We will be using a variety of technology this year, including the online Reading Eggs program, which requires headphones. We have headphones at school, but only one for each computer, not one for each child. If you would like your child to have his/her own personal headset, please send one to school in a Ziploc bag labeled with their first and last name on the bag. These personal headphones will be kept for your child’s use only and will be returned to you at the end of the year.

3. Sign Up for Remind and Class Dojo

Remind is an amazing communication tool that allows me to send you reminders, photos, and school announcements via text message without needing to know any phone numbers. Parents from past years have raved about this tool. I strongly urge you to sign up!


Class Dojo is our Positive Behavior System. It allows me to connect with you and your child by providing positive feedback and creating a positive classroom community and culture. Students earn Dojo Points for positive behavior and lose points to show what they need to work on. Losing a point is not like clipping down on a clip chart, it is just a way for students to see where they need to improve. However, positive points are handed out much more frequently. Points fluctuate throughout the month and students can cash them in at the end of each month. Class Dojo reinforces classroom and school values (FORGE values and the Golden Rule). Flyers with information about how to sign up will be sent home at Open House or the first week of school.
