    Teacher's Notes
    Welcome to my classroom! I am very excited to have your child with me this year. As with each year, it is extremely important you, as a parent, read all information that is sent home. Be sure you understand everything and if not, please ask me. It is much better to receive clarification that to just ignore it. We will be doing lots of take home activities which you will allow you the opportunity to help your child. I will also have many opportunities for the families to help me by working in the room, or by taking items home to cut out/ put together for future activities.
    This will be a fun and busy year. Please make sure your child has a large backpack with an entire change of clothes (underwear, shorts, shirt, socks, shoes) inside. This backpack needs to come to school every day! We have a lot to accomplish and learn each day and a limited amount of time so please be on time each day to drop your child off and pick your child up. We are going to have a lot of fun and grow together!!
