Guest Teachers & Our Classroom

When I am out of the classroom, I expect ALL the children to show good character and to do what is right. Of the character pillars above, I especially expect the children to show respect and trustworthiness. I talked to the class and they reflected on what they could have done differently.

I will be out of the classroom again before the end of the school year. Please talk to your child about how he/she is representing themselves, our class, and Erskine Elementary to our guests.

Further, if the guest teacher leaves specific names, I want you to be aware that it could result in disciplinary action.

There will be a guest teacher in the classroom this Friday; I have to go to Tenth Street Elementary and fill in as dean.




Encourage your kiddos to play OUTSIDE!

I have started entering Grades in PowerSchool (link below). Please check your child's grades. He or she should not have any missing assignments. If your child has missing assignments then he/she is not using class-time wisely. If you have lost your parent access information, you can contact the main office and request your parent PowerSchool login information.
