                  K-3 Inclusion

    Wilson's quote this year: " The Strengths of many the power of one!

    Stay focused

     

    I do hope you had a wonderful summer and that the little ones are ready to come back.  I am so looking forward to a wonderful and exciting year!

    This is my 24thyear of teaching and most of it is here at Wilson. It is a wonderful place to be!  My son lives in Denton. He is busy so I don't get to see him often. My granddaughter has moved to Oklahoma can't believe that she is going to be in 8th this year. I went to Colorado for vacation this summer.

    Mrs. Yolanda Malig will be back for her 9th year. YEA! Her twins will be in 11th.  Ms. Jennifer Maples will be back for her 4th year. She has a daughter who will be in the 7th.

    About our class: We do inclusion here at Wilson based upon what is best for each child. We usually work on our academics in our classroom. The Special Education Department wants us to follow the TEACCH model, which is a very visual structured program. I had the advanced training in it. Studies show that parental involvement in a child’s education is one of the strongest indicators of student achievement. It would be great if you would engage your child in conversation about his/her day. We usually send a folder/binder home each day- the Daily Take Home folder. It will let you know of your child’s behavior for the day and what you child is doing in class. We will also send homework in a separate envelope- we try to make it as fun as possible. This is also another opportunity for us to communicate. You could let us know any special happenings in your life. I know that together we can work together to help your child succeed. To be the very best that he/she can be. Please return the folder each day so that we can let you know what’s happening! The Monday folder will have things from the school such as flyers and notices from the office. As daunting as it may be, try to sort through them, and read each one. They often contain important information and reminders. Your child should bring the empty folder back to school the next day- signed. Verify an absence: A written excuse needs to be sent the next day (up to 48 hours after) anytime a child is absent. After 3 unverified absences the assistant principal is notified. After 5 the courts can get involved.

    Parent-Teacher Communication

    We usually send a folder/binder home each day - the Daily Take Home Folder. It will let you know of your's child's behavior and what you child is doing in class. Please sign and return it the next day.  So that we can continue to let you know what is happening. You can also write me notes in it. You can let us know any special happenings in your life.  We will also send homework in a separate envelope- we try to make this as fun as possible. This is also another opportunity for us to communicate. I know that we can work together to help your child succeed- to be the very best that he/she can be.

    Verify an absence : A written excuse needs to be sent the next day (up to 48 hours) anytime a child is absent. After 3 unverified absences the assistant principal, Mrs. Bomar is notified. After 5 the courts can get involved.
    In addition to report cards and conference, I am always available to meet or speak with you. We can also communicate through the daily folder.  Parent teacher conference week is scheduled for October 5  which is also early release week.  

    Wilson:

    Some common language that Wilson will be using this year:

    Voice levels- 0 is no talking

                        1 is a whisper voice

                        2 is a quiet voice

                        3 is a presentational voice or teacher voice

    This is thru Champs.

    You might want to send a jacket to school. Sometimes our classroom is cold and other times it can be warm. 

    If you need to contact me with questions, comments, or suggestions please feel free to let me call.   I am looking forward to a wonderful year.
