Below is a lot of information. Please read through it carefully and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Please know I am working very hard to support your child this school year. I believe we can work together to continue to make this a great year for your first grader. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year please don't hesitate to contact me.

During our next visit from Ms. Pietruszynski, students will learn about a variety of topics! Kindergarten students will explore feeling words and ways to express those feelings in a healthy way. 1st grade lessons will discuss perseverance and how to keep trying, even when things get hard. 2nd grade lessons will focus on conflict resolution and how to respectfully work through problems with one another through the use of “I” messages. As always, feel free to contact Ms. Pietruszynski with any questions/concerns you might have regarding your student. email@example.com or 732-3610.
